Updating the IMIA Strategic Plan – Contributions Invited From IMIA Members and Colleagues

IMIA is in the process of updating and re-focusing its Strategic Plan. We need your input to help us.

IMIA’s current Strategic Plan – titled Towards IMIA 2015 – was approved by the IMIA General Assembly at its meeting in Brisbane, Australia in 2007, in conjunction with Medinfo2007. It can be found via

We have an outline for activities over the next year (or just less than), with the aim of presenting the updated and re-focused Strategic Plan to the IMIA General Assembly at its meeting at Medinfo2013 in Copenhagen, Denmark, in late August 2013 ( The core taskforce members leading this activity are are Antoine Geissbuhler (Chair), Lincoln de Assis Moura, Jr. (Vice chair), Nancy Lorenzi, Fernando Martin-Sanchez, Christian Lovis, Lucy Westbrooke, Alvaro Margolis, John Holmes, S B Gogia, Peter Murray.

As the first stage of this, so that we have some initial thoughts for the IMIA General Assembly to discuss in Beijing at its 2012 meeting, we have a short(ish) set of high level questions. These can be found in the document at We invite you to return your answers by 20 September 2012, so that the first set of results can be analysed and presented at the Beijing meeting.

We invite IMIA members (in particular Member Societies, Working and Special Interest Groups, and Institutional members) to read the current Strategic Plan, and consult within their organisations on ideas as to how it should be re-focused and updated. We also invite individual members of any of these groups to contribute their views.
