Call for clinical and industry case studies for HIC 2019

The Health Informatics Society of Australia (HISA) has issued a call for papers for its annual Health Informatics Conference (HIC), being held this year in Melbourne in August.

This year's event will see two sub-themes for the clinical case studies section – one for primary care and one for hospitals/acute care.

The primary care stream will be co-chaired by former RACGP eHealth and practice management systems chair Nathan Pinskier and Australian Primary Health Care Nurses Association director Julianne Badenoch. The hospital/acute stream will be chaired by Graeme Hart, an associate professor at the University of Melbourne's Health and Biomedical Informatics Centre.

Submissions are encouraged from clinicians working in a range of healthcare settings including public and private hospitals, nursing, primary care, indigenous, aged and community care and multi-cultural services. HISA is looking for 650-word abstracts about informatics projects aimed at improving the day-to-day delivery of patient care.

Projects ideally have been implemented and evaluated in a clinical setting, and are potentially transferable to other sites, HISA says.

The conference will also feature the traditional industry case studies and academic/scientific streams. The industry stream will be chaired by former Victorian DHHS CIO Paul Cooper, with the academic stream co-chaired by the University of Tasmania's Elizabeth Cummings and Swinburne University of Technology's Mark Merolli.

Abstracts are invited for the following areas of interest:

  • Analytics and the learning health system
  • Clinical informatics
  • Digital health workforce development
  • Health policy, ethics and business models
  • Informatics in health professional education
  • Innovations, informaticians and digital health entrepreneurship
  • Integrated and connected care
  • Interoperability and informatics infrastructure
  • Participatory medicine and consumer informatics
  • System implementations and digital hospitals.

Submissions close on March 15. The conference will be held from August 12 to 14.
