Thank you again to Dr. Eike-Henner W. Kluge for his dedication and time to IMIA on this important work.
Greetings from the President of IMIA, Dr. Chris Lehmann
The International Medical Informatics Association (IMIA) is the world body for health and biomedical informatics. As an ‘association of associations’, IMIA acts as a bridging organisation, bringing together the constituent organisations and their members. IMIA provides leadership and expertise to the multidisciplinary, health focused community and to policy makers, to enable the transformation of healthcare in accord with the world-wide vision of improving the health of the world population.
Inherent in IMIA’s role is to bring together, from a global perspective, scientists, researchers, users, vendors, developers, consultants and suppliers in an environment of cooperation and sharing.
IMIA’s vision is that there will be a world-wide systems approach for healthcare. Clinicians, researchers, patients and people in general will be supported by informatics tools, processes and behaviors that make it easy to do the right thing, in the right way, at the right time to improve health care for all. This systems approach will incorporate and integrate research, clinical care and public health. To achieve this vision will require everyone being supported by informatics-based information and communication systems and technologies. As an organization committed to promoting best practice in the use of information and communication technologies within biomedical informatics and in health and healthcare, and seeing technology as transformational, IMIA will promote research and develop the concepts needed to support the organizations of the world.
IMIA Vision: update coming soon…
