AMIA 2022 Clinical Informatics Conference Keynote and Plenary Presentations

We are excited to offer several plenary presentations at the 2022 Clinical Informatics Conference in Houston, TX.

Plenary Presentation

Clinical Informatics In Focus: Fireside Chat on Burden Reduction, Burnout, and Informatics as an Intervention

Tuesday, May 24 | 1:45 p.m. – 3:00 p.m.

Over the past decade, there has been significant investment in health IT, leading to rising clinician burden and burnout. Informatics leaders must embrace innovative informatics interventions to reduce burden and burnout, but they can’t go at this alone. We need informatics interventions, partnerships, and collaboration with all healthcare leaders. This panel will address the broader environment around technology-caused burnout and a way forward with best practices and programs to put into action.
