Biomedical and health professionals converge in D.C. to absorb new findings in science of informatics

ealth sector. "Introducing complex technology into a complex health care system requires a deliberate and thoughtful approach," he said. "Simultaneously, important advances in biomedical computational techniques are helping us understand the best ways to extract meaning from health data, discover new knowledge, support clinical research, and understand how best to use information technology to improve the health of individuals and populations."

A number of Symposium sessions are devoted to examination of how ARRA and the HITECH Act are energizing the field of informatics in key areas: workforce expansion and research. One late-breaking session, for example, takes a close look at the current adequacy of quality measures in the electronic era, and how electronic health records (EHRs) support quality measurement and standardization of quality measurements. Another session, also linked to the ARRA stimulus, includes a panel of ONC grant recipients sharing their initial challenges and lessons learned as they move forward in HIT adoption. The panel members are able to contrast the different operating models, and outreach and technical assistance strategies employed by each of the various Regional Extension Centers established by HITECH grant funds.

A late-breaking session scheduled for Wednesday, Nov. 17, focuses on HIT vendor contracts, their customers, ethical practices, and patient safety. This session provides analysis of AMIA's recently published position on HIT vendors, their customers, and patient safety, including contract language and other elements of the vendor-customer relationship that can be improved upon for more meaningful use of HIT systems in clinical practice settings.

In his remarks to the Symposium, AMIA President and CEO Edward H. Shortliffe, MD, PhD, FACMI, indicated significant growth plans for AMIA and revealed a new logo and tagline. He said that the refreshed branding is meant to convey AMIA's readiness to broaden its scope of ac
