Informatics Week in Chicago!

It’s a fun time to be in informatics and thanks to the members who have participated in AMIA over the years, we look forward to participating in the first ever “Informatics Week in Chicago as an organizational sponsor!

Chicago, IL (August 7, 2012) - Mayor Rahm Emanuel has declared October 30 to November 7, 2012 Informatics Week in Chicago.

“I urge all Chicagoans to make an effort to participate in the activities highlighting the role of informatics in improving the quality, safety, and cost-effectiveness of health care in Chicago and the United States,” said Emanuel in his Proclamation.

The Mayor notes that “informatics-based tools are important for improving both the quality and efficiency of healthcare for the citizens of Chicago and the nation.” He continues that “Chicago is the home to thousands of health care providers that use informatics-based tools and numerous corporations that provide informatics solutions and hire informatics professionals.”  Further, in his Proclamation, he notes that “Chicago is a center for informatics research and education.”

This event is the first of its kind in Chicago and highlights the rapidly growing importance of healthcare informatics to the region.  It coincides with the world’s premier scientific meeting for biomedical and health informatics, the AMIA 2012 Annual Symposium, being held in Chicago, November 3 -7, for the first time since 2007.

The AMIA Annual Symposium is the world's premier scientific meeting for biomedical and health informatics.

Academy members will be allowed special rates—more to come very soon with future blogs!
