IIHA Workshop: March 26, 2006
Healthcare information systems continuously have to be adapted to new requirements,standards, laws, etc. Cost pressure is massively increasing, and at the same time, system complexity is growing. This constantly changing environment is also characterized by highly interdisciplinary processes which depend on timely providing patient related information at the point of care in order to prevent medical errors. In addition, medical knowledge should be provided in a way that enables effective decision support for clinicians. Huge amounts of data with increasingly complex data structures are created in the course of this process, and legacy systems have to be integrated. The core challenge is to establish flexible and responsive IT infrastructures that are capable of effectively adapting to changing requirements.
Information integration thus is a key factor for healthcare applications, as most medical applications are determined by a huge variety of heterogeneous and independent health care institutions that have to share data. The continuity of medical processes has to be improved, and medical pathways will play an important role as integration backbone within institutions and across institutional borders.
In order to ensure efficient and high-quality patient treatment, data have to be exchanged between participating systems in a consistent and appropriate way. In order to avoid information overflow and to ensure that the right information is available at the right place and right point in time, an effective method to organize the flow of information is needed. Various aspects have to be considered in order to support health care professionals in their clinical routine work. In addition, scientists need support for their (distributed) research.
Topics of Interest
According to the banner theme of this EDBT conference "From Database Systems to Universal Data Management" this workshop will focus on all topics which support information integration in healthcare applications. One focal point will be on process related methods and techniques.
The topic of the workshop include, but are not limited to:
o Data Management in Medicine / Health Care Environments
o Scientific/Medical Workflow Management
o Data Integration in Health Care
o Support of Clinical/Medical Pathway Execution
o Information Flow Management for Integrated Clinical Processes
o Medical Information/Knowledge Management
o Medical Process/Pathway Modelling
o Clinical Vocabularies, Domain Models and Ontologies
o Standards based Information Integration
o Data Integration across Institutional Borders
o Embedding IT support into Clinical Workpractice
Papers should be submitted in pdf or postscript format (format according to LNCS style) here (submission will be opened soon). The paper length should not exceed 12 pages.
Selected papers will be published as post-workshop proceedings in the LNCS series by Springer.
