“I am proud to honor these esteemed ACMI Fellows with this recognition” ACMI President Genevieve Melton-Meaux, MD, PhD, FACMI, Professor of Surgery and Health Informatics and Director of the Center for Learning Health System Sciences, University of Minnesota; Chief Analytics and Care Innovation Officer, Fairview Health Services. “Being elected to ACMI fellowship is a prestigious honor in the field of biomedical informatics, and these four accomplished individuals have been ACMI fellows for at least 10 years. They continue to serve ACMI and the biomedical informatics community with their expertise and contribute to the ongoing success of the College.”
AMIA’s Annual Symposium is the largest informatics event worldwide. The Symposium presents leading-edge scientific research on biomedical and health informatics, and more than 150 scientific sessions. The work presented spans the spectrum of the informatics field: translational bioinformatics, clinical research informatics, clinical informatics, consumer health informatics and public health informatics.
ACMI is an honorary College of elected Informatics Fellows from the United States and abroad who have made significant and sustained contributions to the field of medical informatics and who have met rigorous scholarly scrutiny by their peers. Incorporated in 1984, ACMI dissolved its separate corporate status to merge with the American Association for Medical Systems and Informatics (AAMSI) and the Symposium on Computer Applications in Medical Care (SCAMC), when AMIA was formed in 1989. The College now exists as an entity within AMIA, with its own bylaws and regulations.
