Following their recent election, Dr. Walsh and 13 other new Fellows were inducted into the American College of Medical Informatics (ACMI) on November 6 at ceremonies during the American Medical Informatics Association (AMIA) 2022 Annual Symposium.

“I am thrilled to welcome these 14 new, highly-accomplished ACMI Fellows to the College,” said ACMI President Genevieve Melton-Meaux, MD, PhD, FACMI, Professor of Surgery and Health Informatics and Director of the Center for Learning Health System Sciences, University of Minnesota; Chief Analytics and Care Innovation Officer, Fairview Health Services. “Their contributions across our field, and more broadly contributions to biomedicine, are integral to the advancement of health and healthcare. These 14 fellows will carry the FACMI designation, one of the highest honors in the field of biomedical informatics.”

ACMI is an honorary College of elected Informatics Fellows from the United States and abroad who have made significant and sustained contributions to the field of medical informatics and who have met rigorous scholarly scrutiny by their peers. Incorporated in 1984, ACMI dissolved its separate corporate status to merge with the American Association for Medical Systems and Informatics (AAMSI) and the Symposium on Computer Applications in Medical Care (SCAMC), when AMIA was formed in 1989. The College now exists as an entity within AMIA, with its own bylaws and regulations.

The list of the 2022 ACMI inductees is:
