Call for submissions

Context Sensitive Health Informatics is about health information technologies and their environments. Environments may be people in different roles such as users, designers, and evaluators, but also non-human constructs such as organizations, work practices, guidelines and protocols, buildings and markets. We invite original contributions addressing the conference topic. 

In light of these perspectives, the conference encourages submissions in the following themes:

  • Care coordination across contexts
  • Patient participatory care
  • Redesigning healthcare work
  • Patient participation in care design and redesign
  • Patient safety
  • Monitoring of the health of populations
  • Public health surveillance and Public health informatics
  • Mobile health, personal health tracking and social media
  • Disaster response using technology
  • Interaction with systems and quality
  • Health informatics education from urban to rural settings
  • Open source solutions
  • Redefining the electronic health records
  • Patient portals
  • Quality and regulatory control
  • Stimulating innovation and health care transformation around the world
  • Data warehousing and Big Data
  • Health information in the cloud
  • Human factors and usability
  • Sociotechnical systems
  • Theoretical approaches to investigate context sensitive health informatics that will generate robust evidence
