IMIA, the International Medical Informatics Association (IMIA – www.imia.org
), has launched a new blog-based news and information service at http://imianews.wordpress.com
. The aim will be to provide items about IMIA, its members, and its activities, as well as material from the wider health and medical informatics communities globally. This will contribute to IMIA's strategic goal of strengthening its role as a bridging organisation for the global health and biomedical informatics community.
The new service will evolve during 2009, and beyond, as its usefulness to IMIA members and the wider community are evaluated. It will incorporate new applications and features (many Web 2.0 based) when they seem to be of benefit.
Further information about IMIA is available through the IMIA News site, the main IMIA website, or from Dr Peter Murray, IMIA Acting Executive Director (imia[at]imia-services.org).
