Informatics Resources

AMIA – American Medical Informatics Association


AMIA is a community committed to the vision of a world where informatics transforms people’s care. Over the last 35 years, the use of informatics has grown exponentially to improve health and to make better healthcare decisions. Today, informatics is the key to accelerating the current goals of healthcare reform.

JAMIA is AMIA’s premier peer-reviewed journal for biomedical and health informatics. Covering the full spectrum of activities in the field, JAMIA includes informatics articles in the areas of clinical care, clinical research, translational science, implementation science, imaging, education, consumer health, public health, and policy. JAMIA’s articles describe innovative informatics research and systems that help to advance biomedical science and to promote health. Case reports, perspectives and reviews also help readers stay connected with the most important informatics developments in implementation, policy and education.

The Society for Medical Decision Making


“Our vision is that systematic proactive approaches should be used for decision making in health care. We are promoting an integrated approach to health care decision making based on multiple perspectives and expertise from multiple disciplines. Optimal communication among those involved in healthcare decisions will facilitate informed and shared decision-making by policy-makers, physicians, patients, and the public.”
