In January 2000, the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) and the National Library of Medicine (NLM) cosponsored an invitational workshop entitled "Medical Informatics and Health Services Research: Bridging the Gap." Planned by a small committee of representatives from NLM and AHRQ institutional training centers, the workshop was designed to address the need for education of researchers interested in working at the intersection of the fields of medical informatics and health services research. More than 100 educators and researchers from AHRQ- and NLM-sponsored training programs in medical informatics and health services research participated in the workshop. Through a series of plenary presentations and breakout sessions, the workshop addressed ways of increasing the pool of persons interested, trained, and experienced in addressing specific areas of synergy between the two fields. This paper reports on the results of the workshop.
