Information Quality in eHealth

http://www.meduni-graz.at/imi/usab2011/index.php

7th Conference of the Austrian Computer Society Workgroup: Human-Computer Interaction LKH-University Hospital Graz organized by Institute for Medical Informatics, Statistics and Documentation Medical University of Graz The conference will focus on the hypothesis that modern information management can bridge the hiatus theoreticus, the gap between scientific and theoretical knowledge in medicine on one hand and its application within medical practice on the other hand.

In their daily routines, medical practitioners are confronted with individuals, who exhibit variations in the expressions of diseases with respect to etiology, symptoms, the course of the disease as well as psycho-social aspects, requiring the tailoring of scientific knowledge to personalize practicable diagnostic procedures and therapeutic interventions. Crucial to this process is the usability of information, extracting maximum potential for the highest quality outcome. We challenge the scientific community to present outstanding ideas and solutions for information usage in the context of:

Information Usability & ...

  • Accessibility
  • Clinical Routine, Pathways and Workflows
  • Decision Making Support
  • (Governmental) Health Services
  • Medical Education
  • Privacy, Safety and Security
  • Visualization, Perception and Cognitive Science
  • Patient Empowerment.

All submissions will be reviewed by at least three independent reviewers. Accepted contributions will be published in the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series.


Calls for Papers and Posters To support broad access within an international audience, the official conference language for publication and presentation will be English.

In order to ensure highest quality, all papers undergo thorough peer review from at least three international experts. Accepted contributions will be presented during the symposium as full paper, short paper or poster/demonstration and will be printed in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) Series published by Springer. Please carefully read and follow the instructions for the preparation of your contribution, and download the relevant files.
