AHRQ Conference Grant Program (R13)
The central goal of the annual Conference on Health IT & Analytics is to develop a health information technology and analytics (HIT+A) research agenda that supports national efforts to create a learning health system that produces evidence to make health care safer, of higher quality, more accessible, equitable, and affordable.
This project supported a 2-day conference called the Ethics in Investigational and Interventional Uses of Immersive VR (e3iVR), hosted by the Living Environments Laboratory at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
The Workshop on Interactive Systems in Healthcare 2013: Bridging Communities was a 1-day, in-person event designed to foster conversation and bridge communities, and included experts in biomedical informatics, nursing informatics, medical sociology, human–computer interaction, and other related fields.
The objectives of the 2015 and 2016 AMIA Policy Invitational meetings are to develop consensus recommendations on policy to improve health information technology for patient care, facilitate research, and manage the health of populations.
The AMIA Health Policy Invitational Meetings address cutting edge and complex topics at the intersection of health care and informatics with the goal to identify challenges with current policies, make recommendations for future policies, and identify research needs for advancing the topic of focus.
