Precision medicine is a revolutionary advance in current healthcare transitioning from a one-size-fits-all approach towards a data-driven where medical decisions are evidence-based on individual patient characteristics, environment, and lifestyle. Precision medicine is deeply connected to and dependent on data science, specifically machine learning which have proven during recent years to be promising in predicting disease risk from available multidimensional clinical and biological data. In this context, electronic health records (EHRs) offer great promise for accelerating such predictive analysis by identifying similarities among patients based on their medical information, which is a key step in precision medicine. In addition, explanations supporting the output of a ML model are crucial in precision medicine, where experts require far more information from the model than a simple binary prediction for supporting their diagnosis. Therefore, eXplainable Artificial Intelligence (XAI) allows healthcare experts to make reasonable and data-driven decisions to provide more personalized and precise treatments.

The general purpose of this workshop in IEEE ICHI 2021 conference is to bring together researchers, academicians and sector employees from different fields and disciplines and provide them an independent platform to exchange information on their researches, ideas and findings about healthcare data and its analytics. It is also aimed to encourage debate on how big data can effectively support the healthcare in terms of diagnosis, treatment and population health, and to develop a common understanding for research conducted in this multidisciplinary field.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

Health data collection and analysis for precision medicine
Electronic health records (EHR) mining
Pervasive and personalized healthcare information systems and services
Analysis and visualization of biological and clinical data
EXplainable Artificial Intelligence (XAI) on healthcare
Personalized clinical decision support systems
Context-aware systems in precision medicine
Machine learning in medical diagnosis and management
Machine Learning in sensing devices and wearable health information for precision medicine
Application of big data analysis in precision medicine
Examples of precision medicine in human disease treatment and prevention
