American Medical Informatics Association (AMIA)
The AMIA Annual Symposium is a cumulation of more than 40 years of sharing pioneering research and insights in biomedical informatics. Semedy joined the event for the sixth time in a row for its first virtual edition. The program boasted an exciting agenda of professionals from diverse background committed to transforming patient care through informatics solutions.
Semedy’s virtual booth featured our unique Knowledge Management System (KMS) and its wide range of capabilities. Our team provided exciting demonstrations for the following topics, and many more.

INTEGRATING RESEARCH, CLINICAL DECISION SUPPORT, POPULATION HEALTH, AND QUALITY MEASUREMENT WITHIN A LEARNING HEALTH SYSTEM
Systems demonstration presented by Dr. Saverio Maviglia
November 16, 2020 | 2PM - 3:30PM EDT
Ideally, clinical decision support (CDS), population health management (PHM) interventions, and electronic quality measures (eCQMs) are based on scientific evidence about how a treatment or process affects a set of patients. A common element linking evidence to relevant CDS/PHM interventions and eCQMs is the specification of patients being targeted. The better that the inclusion/exclusion criteria of the research studies match those of the measure, and match the criteria of the CDS and PHM interventions, the more likely that the interventions will have scientific merit and will promote the goals of the measure. This system demonstration will highlight how a common approach to define patient cohorts is a key strategy to create a learning health system that integrates research, care, and quality efforts.
