Chicago Celebrates First Informatics Week, Co-Chaired by Intelligent Medical Objects and Northwestern University
Date:8/7/2012

CHICAGO, Aug. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- 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 for the first time since 2007.

Biomedical informatics is the interdisciplinary field that focuses on the collection, organization and application of information to answer questions, solve problems, and improve human health and the delivery of healthcare services.

The discipline intersects information science, computer science, biomedical research and health care. Informatics has been identified as a growing job field. A recent study by Burning Glass for Credentials that Work noted job postings for Health Care Informatics increased by 36 percent from 2007 to 2011. 

Co-chairs for Informatics Week are Justin Starren, MD, PhD, FACMI, chief of the Division of Health and Biomedical Informatics at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine and Frank Naeymi-
