Informatics Special Interest Group


The objective of the Informatics Special Interest Group is to advance the education and development of informatics in the field of emergency medicine. In high-income countries, this takes the form of involving EM physicians in the design and development of Electronic Medical Records (EMR) to improve usability and efficiency, development and use of datasets for quality improvement and research, and new applications of computing to improve EM care. In middle- and lower-income countries this involves the development and implementation of innovative, cost effective, and culturally appropriate solutions to improve EM care. This SIG is in its growth phase, and we are actively recruiting members from all representative IFEM members.
