The American Medical Informatics Association (AMIA) has begun the process of long-range strategic plan development. The AMIA Board of Directors established an Ad Hoc Strategic Planning Task Force, with the goal of initiating such planning in November 1992. In January 1993, the Task Force convened a group of AMIA members in order to develop an initial set of goals and objectives. The group consisted of past and present AMIA Board members, AMIA Committee chairpersons, representative AMIA Working Group chairpersons, the AMIA Executive Director and members of the AMIA office staff, and a number of AMIA members-at-large. The group created a draft strategic plan, which was refined by the Task Force after circulation among two focus groups and through a mailing to the AMIA membership. This report of the AMIA strategic planning process is intended to create a historical record and to stimulate further discussion of a working plan that will evolve over time. AMIA will continue the strategic planning process through its Ad Hoc Strategic Planning Committee as it begins to implement aspects of the strategic plan over the next several years.
