The nine will be honored this week at the 19th annual Physician-Computer Connection Symposium hosted by the Association of Medical Directors of Information Systems in Ojai, Calif.
AMDIS Awards and top clinical informaticists
Separately, Modern Physician's sister publication, Modern Healthcare, seeks nominations for its first listing of the Top 25 Clinical Informaticists in Healthcare. This new awards-and-honors program recognizes medical professionals who excel at using patient-care data to improve both the clinical and financial performance of their healthcare organizations.
Among the titles of these medical professionals are: chief medical information or informatics officer, or CMIO; chief health information or informatics officer, or CHIO; director of clinical information or informatics, or DCI; and medical director of information or informatics systems, or MDIS. The program is not limited to individuals who hold those titles.
The magazine seeks nominees from all healthcare industry sectors, including hospitals, health systems, physician organizations, health insurers, vendors and suppliers, and trade and professional organizations.
A review board consisting of Modern Healthcare senior editors will select the honorees based on the following three questions. Has the nominee:
- Successfully used patient-care data to improve his or her organization's clinical and financial performance?
- Demonstrated a willingness to share expertise with others in the field of clinical informatics?
- Assumed a leadership position in clinical informatics outside of the candidate's own organization or company?
