Biomedical and health professionals converge in D.C. to absorb new findings in science of informatics
Date:11/15/2010

Washington, DC, Nov. 15The 34th Annual Symposium on Biomedical and Health Informatics opened this week with keynote speaker Susan Dentzer, editor in chief of Health Affairs, addressing a crowd of more than two thousand professionals who are central to modernizing the nation's health sector by applying the science of informatics to a variety of specialized health domains, including public health, clinical practice, clinical research, and translational bioinformatics. The informatics work force develops and encourages use of critical decision-support tools for healthcare providers, adopts and promotes use of electronic health records as a tool for collaborative treatment of patients, and creates resources and tools used in biomedical research. The Symposium's theme, Informatics: Key to Quality Care and Scientific Progress, links together 102 scientific sessions, two keynote speakers, 364 scientific posters, 71 exhibits, a number of theatre-style demonstrations, and six late-breaking sessions. Sessions are led by informatics experts in a professional community that spans academia, industry, clinical settings, research environments, and government and nonprofit agencies.

The Department of Health and Human Services' National Coordinator on Health Information Technology, David Blumenthal, MD, addressed the Symposium at a plenary session this morning. He told the audience, "AMIA plays a leading role in the nation's transition to the quality benefits and efficiencies of health information technology, and this year's Symposium promises to continue supporting our movement forward." Dr. Blumenthal's office is responsible for the implementation of a nationwide interoperable, privacy-protected health information technology infrastructure.

In opening the Symposium, Scientific Program Committee Chair Gilad Kuperman, MD, PhD, FACMI, of New York-Presbyterian Hospital and Columbia University, described the challenges informatics professionals face working in today's h
