James Cimino, M.D., treasurer of the American Medical Informatics Association’s (AMIA) Board of Directors, attended their most recent meeting along with the first day of AMIA’s Clinical Informatics Conference held in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

The conference focused on exploring practice-ready solutions to be applied to healthcare data, such as reducing clinical documentation.

Topics included workshops on clinical informatics educational curricula for medical students and postdoctoral fellows, clinical decision support design, knowledge management, and prompt engineering for generative artificial intelligence. Cimino was also in attendance to speak with prospective faculty applicants.

Cimino has been chosen to give the closing keynote speech for AMIA’s Fall Symposium with his annual biomedical informatics year-in-review presentation. The symposium will take place on November 9th-13th in San Francisco, California.
