Following their recent election, 17 new fellows, including David Kaufman, associate professor of biomedical informatics at Arizona State University’s College of Health Solutions, will be inducted into the American College of Medical Informatics (ACMI) on Nov. 5 at ceremonies during the American Medical Informatics Association (AMIA) 2017 Annual Symposium.

Kaufman’s recent research has examined electronic health record workflow and coordination of clinical care, a family-based framework of quality assurance for biomedical ontologies, and patient-centered decision support based on device evidence.

ACMI President Christopher G. Chute, Bloomberg Distinguished Professor at Johns Hopkins University, will welcome the esteemed new fellows to the College.

“The election of ACMI Fellows represents the strength and diversity of informatics with recognition of 17 accomplished individuals who are national and international subject matter experts in the science of informatics as it relates to clinical care, research, education and policy,” Chute said. “It reflects the growing impact of the field in healthcare.” 

ACMI is an honorary college of elected informatics fellows from the United States and abroad who have made significant and sustained contributions to the field of medical informatics, and who have met rigorous scholarly scrutiny by their peers.

AMIA, the leading professional association for informatics professionals, is the center of action for 5,400 informatics professionals from more than 65 countries. As the voice of the nation’s top biomedical and health informatics professionals, AMIA and its members play a leading role in assessing the effect of health innovations on health policy, and advancing the field of informatics. AMIA actively supports five domains in informatics: translational bioinformatics, clinical research informatics, clinical informatics, consumer health informatics, and public health informatics.
