Upcoming Health Informatics Conferences

I’m attending a few Health Informatics conferences in the next couple of months. I’m planning on blogging the sessions and writing about interesting new developments in health informatics. Here are the conferences I’m going to:

1. Medicine 2.0 in Toronto. September 17-18. I’m going to be presenting about our new social networking site for encouraging collaboration between health innovators. More on this soon, but there’s some pretty exciting developments in the works. Chen Lou will also be presenting about our Facebook Influenza tracking project. This conference was great fun last year so I’m looking forward to attending again this year.

2. HINZ (Health Informatics New Zealand). September 30 – October 2. This is the annual Health Informatics conference for New Zealand. Again, I’ll be talking about our new health innovation networking site, but also representing the National Institute for Health Innovation at our stand and generally catching up with NZ health informatics people.

3. m-Health New Zealand. November 6. I’m organising this conference with Robyn Whittaker from the Clinical Trials Research Unit at Auckland University. We’ve got some great guest speakers and submissions are coming in. If you’d like to present at this conference, make sure you submit your abstract before the 14th of August.

4. AMIA 2009. November 14-18. This is going to be a huge event in San Fransisco and a great health informatics conference. I’m co-organising a tutorial about using social networking technology (including Second Life) in medical education with W Ed Hammond, Constance Johnson and Parvati Dev.

One thought on “Upcoming Health Informatics Conferences”

  1. Dear sir/Madam,

    How are you doing? I am so fine.

    How are the bloggers of this site, I have you good friends on this side of life. Great to have you.

    May I take this opportunity to bring to you the news that my thesis research done for fulfillment of the M.Sc in health informatics entitled e-health readiness in government healthcare facilities in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia has won an Excellent grade.

    Would you let me find a loop hole whereby I can present this work at a workshop to be held any where.

    I am also of a thought to publish this work.

    Had I found the opportunity to participate in this very event, it was ok. How ever, I would like to appreciate your work in this regard.
