Adam Wright among 13 Fellows Inducted into American College of Medical Informatics


Following their recent election, 13 new Fellows, including our own Adam Wright, PhD, will be inducted into the American College of Medical Informatics (ACMI) on Nov. 15 at ceremonies during the AMIA 2015 Annual Symposium.

AMIA’s Annual Symposium is the premier educational event in the field. The symposium presents leading-edge scientific research on biomedical and health informatics and over 100 scientific sessions. The Symposium presents work from across the spectrum of the informatics field — translational bioinformatics, clinical research informatics, clinical informatics, consumer health informatics and public health informatics.

ACMI President, Suzanne Bakken, RN, PhD, FAAN, FACMI, Alumni Professor of Nursing and Professor of Biomedical Informatics, Columbia University, welcomed the esteemed new Fellows to the College:

“The election of ACMI Fellows represents the strength and diversity of biomedical informatics with recognition of 13 accomplished individuals who are subject matter experts in the science of informatics as it relates to clinical care, research, education and policy practicing in domains as varied as academic institutions, delivery systems, government and industry,” said Dr. Bakken. “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. Incorporated in 1984, ACMI dissolved its separate corporate status to merge with the American Association for Medical Systems and Informatics (AAMSI) and the Symposium on Computer Applications in Medical Care (SCAMC), when AMIA was formed in 1989. The College now exists as an entity within AMIA, with its own bylaws and regulations.
