                        REQUEST FOR DISCUSSION

        Distribution:   world-wide
        Summary:        discussion on all topics related to the emerging field
                              of medical informatics
        Proposed by:    Aamir Zakaria, M.D. (aamir.zakaria@cbmi.vanderbilt.edu)
                        Dean F. Sittig, Ph.D. (dean.sittig@cbmi.vanderbilt.edu)

This is a formal Request for Discussion (RFD) on the creation of a moderated
newsgroup, sci.med.informatics.

CHARTER

Biomedical Informatics is an emerging discipline that has been defined 
as the study, invention, and implementation of structures and 
algorithms to improve communication, understanding and management of 
medical information.  The end objective of biomedical informatics is 
the coalescing of data, knowledge, and the tools necessary to apply 
that data and knowledge in the decision-making process, at the time 
and place that a decision needs to be made.  The focus on the 
structures and algorithms necessary to manipulate the information 
separates Biomedical Informatics from other medical disciplines where 
information content is the focus.

The focus of this newsgroup will be the discussion of the grand challenges
facing medical informatics today (and tomorrow).   Appropriate topics include, 
but are not limited to:

* Medical Information Standards (e.g. UMLS, HL-7)
* Medical Informatics Training
* IAIMS (Integrated Academic Information Management Systems)
* Computerized Medical Records
* Physician Order Entry Systems
* Computer-Aided Instruction 
* Medical Expert Systems
* Nursing Informatics
* Announcements of Interest, e.g. conferences, journals, societies
* National Library of Medicine
* Health Information Networks
* Medical Software Reviews
* Research Funding Opportunities

RATIONALE

Medical Informatics is an emerging discipline with its own societies, journals,
conferences, and training programs.  However there does not exist on the
UseNet any newsgroup specifically geared towards this large audience of
scientists, physicians, nurses, engineers, and hospital administrators.  There
is a sci.med.telemedicine newsgroup which only addresses one aspect of
medical informatics.  The best network informatics resource at present is a 
mailing list run out of Stanford which has more than 650 subscribers.  A 
UseNet newsgroup would be the perfect complement.

CROSS POSTINGS

This RFD is being posted to news.announce.newgroups, news.groups, sci.med, 
sci.med.pharmacy, sci.med.radiology, sci.med.telemedicine and sci.med.nursing 
newsgroups, as well as the ai-medicine and SMDM-L (Society of Medical Decision 
Making) mailing lists.

All discussion will take place on news.groups.

There were 682 YES votes and 10 NO votes, for a total of 692 valid votes. 
There was 1 abstain and 3 invalid ballots.

For group passage, YES votes must be at least 2/3 of all valid (YES and NO)
votes.   There also must be at least 100 more YES votes than NO votes. 

There is a five day discussion period after these results are posted.  If no
serious allegations of voting irregularities are raised, the moderator of
news.announce.newgroups will create the group shortly thereafter.

CHARTER

Biomedical Informatics is an emerging discipline that has been defined 
as the study, invention, and implementation of structures and 
algorithms to improve communication, understanding and management of 
medical information.  The end objective of biomedical informatics is 
the coalescing of data, knowledge, and the tools necessary to apply 
that data and knowledge in the decision-making process, at the time 
and place that a decision needs to be made.  The focus on the 
structures and algorithms necessary to manipulate the information 
separates Biomedical Informatics from other medical disciplines where 
information content is the focus.

The focus of this newsgroup will be the discussion of the grand challenges
facing medical informatics today (and tomorrow).   Appropriate topics include, 
but are not limited to:

* Medical Information Standards (e.g. UMLS, HL-7)
* Medical Informatics Training
* IAIMS (Integrated Academic Information Management Systems)
* Computerized Medical Records
* Clinical Information Systems 
      (including radiology, laboratory, pharmacy, nursing, etc.)
* Physician Order Entry Systems
* Computer-Aided Instruction 
* Medical Expert Systems
* Nursing Informatics
* Announcements of Interest, e.g. conferences, journals, societies
* National Library of Medicine
* Health Information Networks
* Medical Software Reviews
* Research Funding Opportunities
* Policy Making 
      (including procurement and certification of medical software) 
* Medical Software Engineering
* Cultural/Sociologic Changes
* Medical Software Security

RATIONALE

Medical Informatics is an emerging discipline with its own societies, journals,
conferences, and training programs.  However there does not exist on the
UseNet any newsgroup specifically geared towards this large audience of
scientists, physicians, nurses, engineers, and hospital administrators.  There
is a sci.med.telemedicine newsgroup which only addresses one aspect of
medical informatics.  The best network informatics resource at present is a 
mailing list run out of Stanford which has more than 650 subscribers.  A 
UseNet newsgroup would be the perfect complement.
