ADA/AMIA 10x10 Experience

 Permanent link   All Posts

Want to learn more about what HITECH means? Are you part of a committee involved in implementing Electronic Health Records (EHR) at your facility? Perhaps you are a student with an interest in technology. Thanks to the cooperation between ADA, American Medical Informatics Association (AMIA) and Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU), you can take your interest to the next level.

ADA & AMIA offered the first 10 X 10 course last June 2010. The response was fantastic. As a result, another course will be offered starting in April and conclude at FNCE in San Diego

Luckily for me, I was able to participate in the first 10 X 10. Take it from me, you will be very glad you signed up. Even though I have an interested in the topic, I struggled with which definitions should I use or where could I find the latest references. I was also having trouble trying to keep up with the explosion of new information that is taking place each and everyday. Taking the course has changed all that. I now have a solid foundation of knowledge, fantastic references and the confidence to share my expertise with any healthcare professional. I can’t wait to start integrating the subject matter into the many classes I teach to dietetic students and intern.

The course is well structured, very flexible and best of all, very manageable. Besides completing each unit of material, you will have the opportunity to network with colleagues that share an interest in informatics. You might even find someone that has a similar problem and be able to network to find a solution. And who wouldn't want to meet everybody in person in San Diego at FNCE 2011!

Nutrition Informatics is here to stay. ADA is taking steps to make sure that happens. Now, it's up to each of us to help ADA lead the way and make sure RDs and DTRs are at every table when the topic includes Nutrition Informatics. Register today!
