PCEHR high on HIC agenda
The Health Informatics Society of Australia (HISA) has issued a call for submissions for its Health Informatics Conference (HIC) 2012, being held in Sydney from July 30 to August 2.
High on the conference agenda will be the federal government's personally controlled electronic health record (PCEHR), due to be launched just 30 days prior to the conference.
HISA has called for submissions from both academia and industry, closing on February 23. The main theme of the conference is “Health Informatics – Building a Healthcare Future through Trusted Information”.
Themes for the three days of the main conference are:
- Tuesday July 31 - External drivers and demands - health informatics doing more with less
- Wednesday August 1 - Evidence and Outcomes: Linking research and evidence of what is working into practice
- Thursday August 2 - A digital health system: Future visions and people to support
Scientific submissions require a full written paper addressing major research areas of contemporary interest aligned with clinical informatics, consumer health informatics, public health informatics, and research health informatics.
Industry submissions and workshop submissions require a 600-word abstract.
Guidelines for both are available on the HIC 2012 website. All submissions will be double-blind peer reviewed.
Three satellite conferences will be held on Monday, July 30, including the very successful Digital Hospital Design and Nursing Informatics conferences, along with one on Indigenous Health Informatics.
Submissions close on February 23, with status notified by April 6. Attendees to the conference, being held at the Sydney Exhibition and Convention Centre, can begin to register on January 16.
