Diameter Health Publications Presented at American Medical Informatics Association

11/17/2014

Washington, DC – Today, Diameter Health participated in two research studies presented at the annual symposium of AMIA. The first was an application presented in scientific session S38 on Predicting Risk of Disease. Dr. Lipika Samal of Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston presented a validated model for predicting 5-year kidney failure risk that could be effectively and seamlessly implemented with electronic health records certified for Meaningful Use. The title of the presentation was “Successful Calculation of Kidney Failure Risk using the Consolidate Clinical Document Architecture Standard” and presented to a packed audience. John D’Amore, CTO and President of Diameter Health, was an author on the study.

The other publication was a poster presentation by Dr. Joshua Mandel, John D’Amore, MS and David Kreda on “Semantic Loss in Consolidated CDA Exports for Meaningful Use Stage 2.” This presentation was a second set of research findings from the SMART C-CDA Collaborative, which previously published its work with major EHR vendors in JAMIA this past summer. That article was referenced in multiple presentation at AMIA’s annual meeting and generated buzz among several former and current policy makers. As John D’Amore stated, “based upon multiple discussions at AMIA, we expect the contributions of Diameter Health to continue to shape C-CDA usage in the United States, with a particular focus on future incentive programs for electronic health records. We continue to work with our clients and research partners to advance the science and successful implementation of software to improve clinical care through these document extracts.”

AMIA (the American Medical Informatics Association) aims to lead the way in transforming health care through trusted science, education, and the practice of informatics. AMIA connects a broad community of professionals and students interested in informatics. AMIA is the bridge for knowledge and collaboration across a continuum, from basic and applied research to the consumer and public health arenas.  AMIA is a professional scientific association that was formed by the merger of three organizations in 1988: the American Association for Medical Systems and Informatics (AAMSI); the American College of Medical Informatics (ACMI); and the Symposium on Computer Applications in Medical Care (SCAMC).
