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).
