Innovation in Health Informatics (formerly Informatics in Primary Care) is the house journal of BCS Health, the health informatics specialist group of BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT. It publishes high-quality research papers, literature reviews and letters from both researchers and practitioners in the fields of social care, health and clinical informatics. Its focus is on informatics research from the front lines of health care and how informatics can support innovation in health and health care.
We look to publish articles about how computers and information technology can be incorporated into clinical workflow and be used to measure quality and health outcomes. We are interested in how computerised medical records can better record the clinical status of patients and can be used to measure the quality, safety and efficiency of health care professionals and organisations – including primary care, hospital, mental health, and social and community care. The scope of the journal also includes integrated care and how genetic data might be used to enhance health care. Both qualitative and quantitative research will be considered.
Join us to the HEC 2016 Conference
Health - Exploring complexity: an interdiscinary Systems Approach
28 August - 2 September 2016
The involved societies have longstanding experience in integrating the disciplines of Medical Informatics, Biometry, Epidemiology and Health Data Management. The collaboration will not only offer a unique opportunity for integration but also strengthen each of the disciplines involved both on a national and international level.
Systems Approach to Health…
In complex systems components are interacting. In our joint endeavors for better health for all we need methods taking interaction into account. This is about interaction of people with their environment, of clinical trials with information systems, of smart homes with epidemiological research, of health data management with economics, of clinical research with systems biology and much more. Because of this complexity we need new models which are able to integrate all these various aspects.
Surely, the conference will not be able to deliver all solutions needed to provide health for all in Europe and the world. But we promise to present a manifold and thus exciting scientific field which is attractive to explore and to learn from.
The complexity of our scientific fields may mislead to just focus on one’s own narrow field of expertise. The conference will provide a unique opportunity to experience complexity as a personal gain.
