Series 2: American Association for Medical Systems and Informatics, 1980-1990 [series]:

This series contains board meeting minutes and notes, correspondence, and publications. Hinman served as president, treasurer, chairman of the By-Laws Committee, and board member of this organization from approximately 1981 to 1989.

On August 19, 1981, the American Association for Medical Systems and Informatics (AAMSI) was incorporated. This organization came into existence as a result of the efforts of two predecessor organizations, the Society for Computer Medicine (SCM), incorporated in November, 1972, and the Society for Advanced Medical Systems (SAMS), incorporated in November, 1975, to merge into one. Formal dissolution of SCM and SAMS occurred on April 30, 1982. AAMSI's main purpose is to support patient care, teaching, research, and health administration through the development and implementation of computer systems. To meet this goal, the association serves as a clearinghouse for information on medical systems and informatics, supports committees which contribute to the advance of medical informatics and, most important, sponsors annual conferences on advances in medical information systems.
