In collaboration with AMIA’s Clinical Information Community of Practice, this session will feature AMIA members who are working to develop and deploy tools to manage COVID-19 patients in the local health systems, and across state-wide geographies. Presenters will discuss the role of clinical informatics plays in facilitating the rapid switch from traditional modes of care delivery to virtual care modes, informing the workflow and monitoring of inpatient care through the development of patient dashboards and remote monitoring. Informatics clinicians and researchers working together with healthcare operations is an essential partnership for the development of structured documentation tools, tracking utilization, planning for staffing, and for predictive models. This session will offer CME.
