NI2012 is the official meeting of the IMIA Special Interest Group on Nursing Informatics. As part of their triennial meeting process, IMIA chooses an organization to host the meeting. AMIA is that organization for 2012 and is convening many other societies in the Americas to participate.
AMIA is the professional home for biomedical and health informatics. AMIA is dedicated to promoting the effective organization, analysis, management, and use of information in health care in support of patient care, public health, teaching, research, administration, and related policy. AMIA's 4,000 members advance the use of health information and communications technology in clinical care and clinical research, personal health management, public health/population, and translational science with the ultimate objective of improving health.
For over thirty years the members of AMIA and its honorific college, the American College of Medical Informatics (ACMI), have sponsored meetings, education, policy and research programs. The federal government frequently calls upon AMIA as a source of informed, unbiased opinions on policy issues relating to the national health information infrastructure, uses and protection of personal health information, and public health considerations, among others.
AMIA is an interdisciplinary and diverse group of individuals and organizations that come from over 65 countries.
