The Health Informatics Workgroup of The New York Academy of Medicine will be hosting an evening conference and exhibit to showcase innovations (or prototypes) that employ health informatics to improve urban health or health care. This event will consist of several presentation stations wherein a variety of innovative informatics solutions will be displayed that address specific health care applications and uses. Each presentation station will consist of an innovation (or a promising prototype), its developer, a health care professional who can speak to its application, and a logistic professional who can provide information regarding connectivity and interoperability issues, costs, and contracts. The group presentation station members will have the opportunity to tell a compelling story based on a relatable scenario, and demonstrate the innovation (or prototype) in a relevant and appropriate application in which health IT and informatics can be employed to improve urban health and population health. The showcased innovations will spark ideas among the attendees and will demonstrate the benefits of the collaborative innovation (or prototype). For this reason, it is important that group presentation station participants represent a good cross section of stakeholders from different types of organizations.

The event will begin with group presentation stations, networking, and light refreshments. This will be followed by a keynote presentation to open the panel presentation of group presentation spokespersons (10-minute presentation each) to recapitulate their innovation, and a final Q & A.


This call is specific to various stakeholders, including but not limited to, providers, payers, vendors (including start-ups), social services, or academia. Proposals will be judged based on the following criteria:

  • Innovative use of informatics and technology
  • If it is a prototype, it should address an important urban health or healthcare issue
  • Submission represents a collaboration among a diverse group of stakeholders (at least 3)
  • Ability to provide a compelling story that will be relatable to attendees of the conference
  • Uniqueness – entries will be selected based on exceptional innovations or prototypes that will support the education of attendees and its practical application in healthcare.
