IMIA organizes the internationally acclaimed “World Congress on Medical and Health Informatics” – known as MedInfo. The Congress has been held every two years since 2013, previously it was held every three years.   MedInfo provides both a high quality scientific exchange of current research and thinking in health and biomedical informatics and an opportunity for formal meetings and informal networking of IMIA’s members.
