Call for Papers

The IHIC is a forum for scientists and implementers to present and discuss concepts, models and implementations for innovative interoperable e-Health solutions. The conference also aims to play the role of an interface between science, research and real-world in the health and social care domain.

We invite implementers (representing healthcare providers and software vendors) to present their implementation experience. In order to facilitate the dissemination of these experiences attendees are requested to either submit short practice reports or to allow their presentations to be recorded. The practice reports will be published as part of the conference proceedings, and the recordings will be made available on the conference website after the meeting. Please see instructions for authors.

We invite scientists to submit papers to be presented in the conference and be published in the conference proceedings. All papers will be reviewed by at least two independent reviewers. Papers will be published in the special issue “Standards and Solutions for eHealth Interoperability” of the European Journal of Biomedical Informatics.

All suggested topics will be reviewed by the Program Committee to ensure a balanced series of presentations.

Topics for IHIC 2015

Papers should contribute to the following topics:

  • Concepts and frameworks for Smart Interoperability Infrastructure Services
  • Security and privacy concerns
  • Local, regional or national Electronic Health Records solutions
  • Business Intelligence and Clinical Decision Support
  • Joint HL7 & IHE Implementations at regional and national level
  • “Show me your CDA” – CDA implementations at regional, national, and international levels

One highlight of the conference will be the announcement of the “Joachim W. Dudeck Award” for the best scientific paper of a young author (<35 y). This award is worth US$ 1000 donated by HL7 International as well as with the “Joachim W. Dudeck Award” plaque traditionally donated by HL7 Germany.
