Dr Don E. Detmer honoured by American Medical Informatics Association (AMIA)
16 November 2010
Don E. Detmer, Professor Emeritus at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville and Visiting Professor at UCL CHIME, has been awarded the 2010 Morris F. Collen Award by the American Medical Informatics Association in recognition of his longstanding efforts to advance the field of biomedical and health informatics.
Dr Detmer, former President
and CEO of AMIA, continues to advise his successors, and is active in
educating future generations of health informaticians.
The Collen award is named after Morris F. Collen, a founding physician and pioneer of informatics at US health management organisation Kaiser Permanente.
Dr Detmer said “Clinical informatics – or electronic health records - is not just a nice idea. It’s essential if you are going to be able to deliver first-rate care. The amount of knowledge needed is so great that unless you have a relationship with a computer, you’re just not going to get the job done."
Everyone at CHIME offers Don our warmest congratulations on this much deserved award.
