##################################################################

To succeed in transforming healthcare, many countries will need to
move to more targeted healthcare. Successful migration must encourage
innovation, provide access to more complete patient information and
incorporate advanced clinical knowledge into clinical decision-making.
Aiming at successfully transforming healthcare, some interdependent
challenges need to be overcome, such as prevalence of tightly coupled
applications and data; inadequate data and knowledge standards;
insufficient analytics capabilities; unsatisfactory security and
privacy methodologies; absence of a clinical decision-making foundation.
Knowledge discovery and data mining techniques, especially data
analytics, have been proven holding much promise for solving these
problems. Providers can use health care data analytics to learn about
patient populations, enhance preventive care and drive business
decisions by accessing key data such as demographics and chronic
conditions. Therefore, nowadays the healthcare industry requires a much
more open, robust health information technology environment than ever
existed, especially the techniques and methodologies in knowledge
discovery and data mining.

Targeting on these interesting questions, following the success of the
first edition (DANTH 2013) the second, DANTH 2013 workshop focuses on how
data analytics can improve information management in healthcare. The
workshop will bring together researchers from different countries and
regions to foster dissemination, increase the share of knowledge cross
different domains, and strengthen the research on data analytic
techniques and related applications to healthcare problems.
