Ed Hammond, PhD, Professor of Community and Family Medicine and Director of the Duke Center for Health Informatics, and Jessie Tenenbaum, PhD, Assistant Professor of the Department of Biostatistics and Bioinformatics, were invited presenters at the 13th University Conference on Health Information Systems. The conference was organized by the Department of Health Informatics of the Italian Hospital and held at Hotel Abasto in Buenos Aires November 14-16, 2018. The sponsor for the conference was the Sadosky Foundation, a public-private institution formed by representatives from the Ministry of Science, Technology and Productive Innovation, the Chamber of Software and Information Services (CESSI) and the Chamber of Information and Communications of the Republic of Argentina (CICOMRA), whose goal is to promote a closer interaction between Academia and Industry in fields related to information and communications technology.
The purpose of this annual conference was to disseminate the use of information and communication technologies applied in the field of health to professionals in health informatics in Argentina and Latin America. Per the conference program, “One of our greatest goals is to promote scientific exchange in the subjects of our specialty. For this, in this new version we have expanded the variety of dissertations and we will have important international exhibitors Peter Embi, Eta Berner, Jessica Tenenbaum, Ed Hammond and Heimar Fatima de Marin, among others.”
Dr. Hammond presented, “Adopting Standards for a Changing Health Environment,” and “The Future in Health Informatics.” Dr. Tenenbaum’s talk was on “Translational Bioinformatics in the Precision Medicine Era.”
AMIA 10×10 Data Standards for Learning Health Systems
January 22, 2019 — March 27, 2019 – now enrolling!
This course will explore the concept of learning health systems and closely examine the specific data standards required to support data exchange and re-use in this context. Learners will appreciate the heterogeneity and complexity of existing standards and identify opportunities to use them in organizational and research activities, including observational studies, pragmatic trials and quality improvement projects. Standards Development Organizations and processes for developing and defining standards will be discussed. Specific topics covered will include tools related to the planning phases for health information systems, as well as standards that support interoperability, including information models, terminology and coding systems, data transport syntax, and structured documents. The development, functionality, uptake, and usability of standards from national and international perspectives are discussed, along with models for continuous use of clinical data for quality improvement and research. Students will have an opportunity to define a clinical question and various standards that support the application and evaluation of evidence in health care settings.
Topics: Identifying and evaluating standards, understanding interactions between standards, terminologies and coding systems (SNOMED CT, ICD, CPT, LOINC, RxNorm, ICNP), data exchange standards (HL7 v2, v3, FHIR), HL7 CDA, standards for quality measurement and clinical decision support (HQMF, QDM, CQL, CDS Hooks), and common data models.

Applied clinical informatics professionals, this is YOUR conference.
This is where clinicians, data scientists, HIT developers and researchers gather to learn about implementing team-based, integrated healthcare driven by data, evidence, and best practice. This is the “doing conference” where workshops and presentations provide attendees tools to help them in their day-to-day practice. This is where evidence- and experience-based clinical informatics are explored to improve the quality and safety of health care.
The AMIA 2019 Clinical Informatics Conference (CIC) will be held in Atlanta, Georgia on April 30th-May 2nd.
Congratulations new fellows! They will be inducted into the American College of Medical Informatics on November 4 at ceremonies during the AMIA 2018 Annual Symposium.
2018 Duke Fellows:
Ed Hammond, PhD, FACMI, FAIMBE, FIMIA, FHL7, FIAHSI and Amy Nordo, MMCi, BSN, CPHQ traveled to DC to provide an update on the eSource collaboration project between the FDA, CDISC, Industry and Research Sites. As well as, additional initiatives unique to Duke that impact clinical research and clinical care.
In March, 2018 Ed Hammond, PhD, FACMI, FAIMBE, FIMIA, FHL7, FIAHSI and Amy Nordo, MMCi, BSN, CPHQ hosted a team from Pfizer to progress their partnership in the eSource collaboration project between the FDA, CDISC, Industry and Research Sites. During their visit, they enjoyed a tour of the Innovation Studio, a brainstorming session with the Duke Clinical Research Institutes (DCRI) and a discussion with Matthew Harker, Director of the Analytics Center of Excellence (ACE) Research Customer Solutions at Duke University Health System.
Amy Nordo, MMCi, BSN, CPHQ was invited to participate on a panel consisting of industry, NIH and CDISC partners to represent the work currently being conducted by academic medical centers in eSource. This two day conference , held April 4-5 in National Harbor MD, brought together stakeholders from all areas impacted by clinical research to collaborate on ways to bridge the gap between clinical care and clinical research.
Ed Hammond, PhD, FACMI, FAIMBE, FIMIA, FHL7, FIAHSI has been selected by his peers to participate in the inaugural meeting of the International Medical Informatics Academy (“the Academy”), to establish directions, policies, voting procedures and a leadership team. This election is a validation of his accomplishments in the field as one of the global leaders. The first official meeting will take place on April 24th in Gothenburg, Sweden in conjunction with MIE 2018.
Davera Gabriel, RN, a Research Informaticist for Clinical Research Informatics at the Duke Clinical Research Institute, has been selected as the Vice Chair for the Data Science track for the AMIA 2019 Informatics Summit. The chair for the 2019 Summit is Umberto Tachinardi, MD, University of Wisconsin – Madison. The Summit will take place March 25-28, 2019 in San Francisco, CA.
