Professor Polun Chang Has Been Identified as a Role Model of American Medical Informatics Association.

Professor Chang, faculty of Biomedical Informatics Institute, has been selected as a role model of American Medical Informatics Association (AMIA). AMIA has been the most important professional association globally in medical informatics. Starting in late 2010, AMIA began to identify the role models and to introduce their stories on their website. Professor Chang has identified as one of them. 14 people, among them many were from MIT, Stanford, or Harvard, have been reported up to February 2013 and he is the only one not from the States.

Clinical Informatics became a formal sub-specialist in medical field in late 2011 after a great effort lead by AMIA, which was established in 1989 by merging three related professional organizations. In its 35 years of history, it has progressed to become one of the most authoritative scientific organizations in medical informatics globally.

Professor Chang has actively promoted the medical, especially in nursing, informatics in Taiwan since 2003. He worked with and organized the professionals in this area and assisted to establish the Taiwan Nursing Informatics Association (TNIA) in 2006. He successfully helped the TNIA to become the from non-US member of the Alliance for Nursing Informatics (ANI), which is the most important cooperative platform among various related organizations in the States. Professor Chang is also one of the international committee members, only one from Asia, of Technology Informatics Guiding Education Reform (TIGER) foundation. This success model of developing the nursing informatics professional community in Taiwan was introduced in professional health informatics textbooks in US as well as in China.

The leading achievements of Professor Chang can be observed from the significant amount of published papers on global nursing informatics conferences. When there was only one paper published in NI2003, there were 31 published in NI2006. Till NI2012, the publication from Taiwan has ranked and remained the third globally, less than those from the United States and conference holding countries, and ranked the number one in Asia. Most of these publications come from Professor Chang and graduate students in his lab.

In the 2010 International Medical Informatics Association Conference, Professor Chang represented Taiwan to successfully win the bid to host the NI2014. Recently, he enthusiastically established the cooperation between China and Taiwan in nursing informatics and motivated the development in China. These achievements make Professor Chang being chosen as the role model of AMIA in 2012 and reported in February of 2013 on their website.
