Informatics experts contribute to special Health Affairs edition on e-health in the developing world
Date:2/5/2010

Five articles, whose lead or senior authors are nationally known informatics leaders and members of the American Medical Informatics Association (AMIA), appear in the Feb. 2010 issue of Health Affairs and provide a glimpse into the future of health care delivery in an increasingly information-driven era of health care in the developing world. These articles explain the critical role that information technology, and the health informatics work force will play in achieving overall health improvements globally. The articles further reflect innovative program initiatives AMIA and its membership currently have underway on a global scale:

  • "Enhancing 'M-Health' With South-To-South Collaborations," authored by AMIA Members Walter H. Curioso and Patricia N. Mechael. Conclusive statement: "Because mobile phones and other mobile technologies require less infrastructure, provide greater reach, and possess more agile local programming potential than other e-health systems, scale-up of m-health may be the most promising investment in developing countries."

  • "A Toolkit For E-Health Partnerships in Low-Income Nations," authored by AMIA Members William Tierney, Andrew Kanter, Hamish Fraser, and Christopher Bailey. Conclusive statement: "We must improve the availability of electronic health information broadly in the developing world, not just in an increasing number of targeted demonstrations. Partnerships sustaining these demonstrations must become part of the fabric of global health care."

  • "Building A Health Informatics Workforce In Developing Countries," authored by AMIA Members William Hersh, Alvaro Margolis, Fernn Quirs, and Paula Otero. Conclusive statement: "E-health and m-health applications hold vast promise to improve global health. As these projects develop, leaders need to be cognizant of the need for a well-trained workforce to lead their implementation."
