Journal of Innovation in Health Informatics

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.

We have a new name!

 

After 20 years as Informatics in Primary Care, the journal is renamed Journal of Innovation in Health Informatics.

Informatics is an innovative science, and informaticians need to innovate across professional and discipline boundaries. The title was carefully selected to reflect that

(1) informatics provides the opportunity to innovate rather than simply automates;

(2) implementing informatics solutions often results in unintended consequences, and many implementations fail and benefits and innovations may go unrecognised;

(3) health informatics is a boundary spanning discipline and is by its very nature likely to give rise to innovation.

You can read more about the name change in "Journal of Innovation in Health Informatics: building on the 20-year history of a BCS peer review journal" (Vol 22, 1).
