Training the next generation of informaticians: the impact of “BISTI” and bioinformatics–a report from the American College of Medical Informatics

Friedman CP et al. J Am Med Inform Assoc, 11(3)

In 2002-2003, the American College of Medical Informatics (ACMI) undertook a study of the future of informatics training. This project capitalized on the rapidly expanding interest in the role of computation in basic biological research, well characterized in the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Biomedical Information Science and Technology Initiative (BISTI) report. The defining activity of the project was the three-day 2002 Annual Symposium of the College. A committee, comprised of the authors of this report, subsequently carried out activities, including interviews with a broader informatics and biological sciences constituency, collation and categorization of observations, and generation of recommendations. The committee viewed biomedical informatics as an interdisciplinary field, combining basic informational and computational sciences with application domains, including health care, biological research, and education.

Developing a National Inventory of Telehealth Resources for Rapid and Effective Emergency Medical Care: A White Paper Developed by the American Telemedicine Association Emergency Preparedness and Response Special Interest Group

Balch, David, Telemedicine and e-Health, 14(6)

The unprecedented and growing threats to the safety and security of the U.S. population and many other countries around the world from Mass Casualty Incidents (MCIs), both natural and manmade, range in scope from the general and massive to directed and local. In a post-9/11 world, there is renewed emphasis to develop a global, systematic, coordinated, comprehensive strategy to improve medical response to catastrophic events. Such strategy must address all aspects of preparedness and response, including early detection, local risk awareness, containment, treatment of victims for each region or county involved, and subsequent prevention of injury or illness (mitigation). Communication from MCI sites to outside resource providers is a common problem. Communication gaps regarding medical needs may lead to delays in critical care.
