Professor Jenna Marquard, PhD, FACMI, Cora Meidl Siehl Chair in Nursing Research for Improved Patient Care, was inducted into the American College of Medical Informatics (ACMI) during a ceremony in November.
The ACMI is a college of elected fellows who have made significant and sustained contributions to the field of medical informatics. It is the central body for a community of scholars and practitioners who are committed to advancing the informatics field.
“The FACMI designation is one of distinction and pride. They represent excellence from academia, government and industry and are the best and brightest stars in our field demonstrating thought leadership, stellar experience and established scholarship. Together their important contributions to biomedicine and health care inform, educate and inspire the informatics community to improve human health,” said ACMI President Kevin B. Johnson, MD, MS, FACMI, FAMIA, FIAHSI.
Marquard’s research focuses on capturing and understanding the cognitive processes occurring as clinicians and patients search for and use information to make complex decisions. Her mixed-methods approaches have informed the design of EHR user interfaces, patient-facing technologies, and the integration of patient-generated data into the clinical EHR.
She serves as co-chair of a School of Nursing initiative to examine the ethical implications of the use of artificial intelligence in nursing
There were 23 fellows inducted at the November ceremony.
