Professor Delaney to chair Medical Informatics Symposium panel
Posted on 09/08/2013
The American Medical Informatics Association (AMIA) has announced that a panel discussion chaired by Brendan Delaney, Professor of Primary Care Research at King’s College London, has been accepted for inclusion in its Annual Symposium to be held in Washington, DC later this year.
The panel, which will discuss international perspectives on the digital infrastructure for The Learning Healthcare System, will be co-chaired by: J Ethier, University of Rennes; V Curcin, Imperial College London; D Corrigan, Royal College of Surgeons; and C Friedman, University of Michigan.
The Learning Healthcare System (LHCS) refers to the close coupling of practice of clinical medicine with both the conduct of research and the translation of research into practice.
The panel will present an outline of the TRANSFoRm project, a large EU FP7 Integrated Project to develop a digital infrastructure for the LHCS in European Primary Care. The panel will discuss similar work being carried out in the USA and consider opportunities for international collaboration.
AMIA is a professional scientific association that aims to be the authoritative voice in the growing field of informatics through the individual and collective efforts of its members, who continue to drive thought leadership, and research and practice in their respective disciplines.
The Annual Symposium, to be held in November this year, is the leading scientific meeting for biomedical and health informatics research and practice.
