Does IT work? HiNZ calls for papers
Health Informatics New Zealand (HiNZ) has issued a call for papers for its national conference in November, also announcing leading eHealth researchers Johanna Westbrook and Siaw-Teng Liaw as keynote speakers.
Dr Westbrook, director of the Centre for Health Systems and Safety Research at Macquarie University in Sydney, will ask the pertinent question of whether IT works in her talk on understanding the impact of IT in complex adaptive healthcare delivery systems.
The University of NSW's Professor Liaw, who is also a practising GP, will focus on what needs to be done to make connections in an integrated health “neighbourhood" of local GPs and hospitals.
HiNZ is inviting submissions in four categories: scientific papers, digital health ideas, clinical case studies and nursing informatics case studies. The submissions deadline is June 16, with guidelines available at the HiNZ website.
HiNZ 2017 is being held from November 1 to 3 at the Energy Events Centre in Rotorua. Registrations will open in May.
