Romanian Society of Medical Informatics
The Romanian Society for Medical Informatics, RSMI, is a scientific, professional, non-governmental organization aimed to promote the activities in the development of medical informatics in Romania and to represent the activities in the country and abroad.

RSMI was founded in 1990 and has now over 120 members: physicians, computer scientists, engineers, mathematicians and other professionals working in the field of medical informatics. It continues the tradition of a group of specialists who started to work in this field in 1977.

The activities of RSMI concern stimulation and co-ordination of the activities of its members in promoting medical informatics in the country and to support international co-operation in this field, which implies:
– organizing scientific and professional conferences, symposia, courses and exhibitions and collaboration in such activities with related organizations;
– publication of scientific, professional and educational documents and papers in the field of medical informatics;
– dissemination of information about conferences, publications and links to websites web sites on medical and health informatics
– promoting scientific and professional contacts with similar societies at the international level;
– active involvement to support scientists to attend international meetings
– collaboration with Romanian Academy and the Academy of Medical Sciences in medical informatics research;
