New Fellows recognized for excellence in the use of informatics in practice
The American Medical Informatics Association (AMIA) announced the 2021 class of 154 Fellows of AMIA (FAMIA) in the FAMIA Applied Informatics Recognition Program – a program meant to recognize AMIA members who apply informatics skills and knowledge within their professional setting, who have demonstrated professional achievement and leadership, and who have contributed to the betterment of the organization.
“I’m delighted to welcome our third class of AMIA fellows,” said Patricia C. Dykes, PhD, RN, FAAN, FACMI, AMIA Board Chair and Program Director of Research at the Brigham and Women’s Center for Patient Safety, Research, and Practice. “The FAMIA credential recognizes the successes of applied informatics professionals. The clinical informatics community continues to grow each year, and I am proud that these individuals have chosen AMIA to be their professional home.”
FAMIA recognizes professionals who apply informatics skills and knowledge towards the goals of enhanced personal and population health, improved organizational performance and learning, and individual empowerment in their health, care, and research.
A formal induction ceremony will be held at the AMIA 2021 Virtual Clinical Informatics Conference May 18-20.
