PAHI 2015 : 3rd European Workshop on Practical Aspects of Health Informatics
Call For Papers
SCOPE AND OBJECTIVES
The Western paradigm of health care has favored medical solutions rather than public health and culture. While this paradigm has been effective in delivering health care in the past, it is not positioned to handle complex new societal challenges. New approaches are needed to solve the problems facing health care delivery caused by ageing populations, globalization and long-term chronic conditions. Ensuring future effectiveness of medicine increasingly requires innovation through preventative, participatory, personalized, and predictive modes. Changes must involve movement from a reactive model to a preventative patient-centric model. Information and communication technologies will play an increasing role in this process at all stages of life leading to an approach which can simultaneously maximize health and minimize or prevent illness (creating preferable health outcomes).
Aims of the workshop
This workshop aims to explore new ways of creating preferable health outcomes. This will be achieved by facilitating new collaborations between academics, clinicians, businesses, civic organisations, and government who have an interest in bottom up, transformational change in healthcare using information and communication technologies. The workshop will provide:
a platform for academics to present research within this field
the opportunity for clinicians and civic organisations to discuss key challenges requiring digital solutions in health and social care
the opportunity for businesses to understand this emerging landscape
the opportunity for government to present the overview of health and social care innovation in Scotland and Norway
a platform enabling the exchange of ideas between Scotland and Norway resulting in new collaborations and partnerships for future European funding.
The workshop is being organised by the Institute of Design Innovation (InDI) and the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). A creative collective of researchers from InDI will design and facilitate the workshops over the two day period. The InDI leads the Experience Labs, which are a core element of the Digital Health Institute, a Scottish Funding Council Innovation Centre.
There will also be an opportunity for businesses to participate in a half day programme that will showcase local business and collaborative opportunities. Please indicate areas of interest to enable a targeted programme to be designed.
The Workshop topics include (but are not limited to) the following:
Professional and lay communication in citizen-centred records
Quality and risk management in eHealth
The increasing mobility and communication in citizen-centred records
Lessons learned in relation to failure projects
The impact of ICT for professional healthcare practice
