Abstract Body: AMIA’s Informatics Partnership Council (IPC) is proud to support the AMIA 2019 Pitch IT! Competition, sponsored by AMIA Corporate Member IMO in conjunction with LOF, LLC. Applicants used the online crowd sourcing platform Medstartr (https://www.medstartr.com/pages/AMIA2019) to pitch their innovations in healthcare that use medical and biomedical informatics to improve clinical outcomes, drive down the cost of care, and improve the healthcare experience for patients, care providers, medical professionals and institutions.
