AMIA’s goal is to improve the legislative and regulatory environment for health informatics research, practice and education through AMIA member expertise. The primary pathway through which AMIA achieves this goal is by engaging Federal Agencies and Congress on public calls for input, such as Notices of Proposed Rulemakings (NPRMs) or Request for Information (RFIs). Below, AMIA responses are arranged by Federal Agency and Congressional Committee.
AMIA sent a set of recommendations to the federal government in late July, commenting on its Draft Federal Data Strategy. The nation’s health informatics professionals largely supported the Strategy, identifying ways it could help federal agencies improve data sharing and data availability for research and other supplemental purposes.
