Following their recent election, 21 new Fellows were inducted into the American College of Medical Informatics (ACMI) on Sunday, Oct.23, at ceremonies that followed the opening of AMIA's 35th Annual Symposium on Biomedical and Health Informatics, where about 2,500 informatics professionals have gathered for five days of workshops, scientific sessions, and educational panels on topics including data mining, clinical research informatics, translational bioinformatics, public health informatics and biosurveillance, information extraction, and clinical workflow and human factors. ACMI President Jim Cimino, MD, FACMI, of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), welcomed the esteemed new Fellows to the College:

Dr. Cimino, chief of the Laboratory for Clinical Informatics Development at the NIH Clinical Center, noted that the number of new Fellows this year was nearly triple compared to the number elected into the College last year. He observes, "The growing number of ACMI Fellows is a sign for patients that the field of informatics is expanding. It also should raise awareness among those pursuing careers as clinicians, allied healthcare professionals, and biomedical researchers that informatics provides a rigorous and satisfying pathway that is on a promising upswing." He added, "The U.S. will need many more informatics professionals in key positions in the short-term future; in clinical care, in research, in public health, in translational science, and in consumer health. Computer-assisted health care is part of today's quality healthcare environment, and informatics professionals are at the leading edge."
