  • Jonathan Nebeker, MD, MS, Associate Professor of Internal Medicine, University of Utah School of Medicine; and
  • Wanda Pratt, PhD Professor, Information School, Division of Biomedical & Health Informatics, University of Washington.

Eight student teams will be selected to present their solutions at the AMIA Annual Symposium. Salar will give out plaques and cash prizes to the top three finalists.

“Our committee is thrilled to have Salar sponsor the student design challenge,” said Dr. Madhu Reddy. “Salar brings deep, hands-on experience in developing successful, adoptable clinical documentation solutions.
