The International Medical Informatics Association (IMIA) and one of its Member Societies host the internationally acclaimed Medical and Health Informatics congress, known as MedInfo.
The event was established in 1974 and was held every three years until 2013. Since then, MedInfo has been held every two years. A vote at the IMIA General Assembly determines which IMIA Member Society will host the event.
MedInfo enables a high-quality scientific exchange of current research and critical thinking in health and biomedical informatics across the globe. The event also provides the national and international community with an opportunity for formal meetings and social networking.
