Call For Papers

The last decade has seen significant changes in the health information landscape. Patients and caregivers now access health information through a myriad of avenues -- from patient health records to online health portals, from online health discussion groups to Twitter and other social media. However, these changes have also made it easy to publish and disseminate misinformation and, in turn, adversely affect the quality of health information available to patients, caregivers, and medical professionals.

We present a new workshop named HealthIQ 2015, the workshop on Health Information Quality, that would focus on issues pertaining to the quality of online information in health and healthcare. The workshop will be held along with the IEEE International Conference on Healthcare Informatics (ICHI) in Dallas, Texas, USA from October 21--23, 2015. We envision this edition to be potentially the first in a series of high-impact workshops and symposia focusing on quality, understandability, and reliability of online health information.

HealthIQ 2015 will focus on research articles, panels, and works in progress that address the challenges of poor quality health information available to consumers. We believe the workshop helps fill the gap in understanding information quality challenges across different areas of healthcare. This understanding on problems and current issues with health and healthcare information would serve as an important reference for future research in healthcare informatics. The workshop encourages new collaborations and inter-disciplinary research to build computational tools, linguistic resources, and cognitive models around health information quality. Papers reflecting synergic collaboration between the fields of health informatics, computational science, and social science are strongly encouraged.

WORKSHOP TOPICS
===============

HealthIQ 2015 will invite submissions on (but not limited to) the following aspects of health information:

-Quality issues in online consumer health information, including, but not limited to, trustworthiness, usability, and biases
-Quality of electronic health records (ehr)
-Effectiveness and usability of patient portals
-Readability of medical artifacts
-Dissemination of health information in media, including social media
-Challenges in understanding and parsing electronic health documents
-Consumer health informatics
-Analysis of online health discussions
-Linguistic challenges in understanding online health information
-Evaluation of computation methodologies that address some of the above challenges
-Societal implications of poor healthcare data

Authors may submit regular papers (up to 10 pages), short papers (up to 6 pages), and demo papers (up to 4 pages) in the similar format as that followed by ICHI. Papers must adhere to the IEEE Proceedings Format available for LaTex and Word, and submitted as a single PDF file. All submissions will undergo a double-blind review and handled electronically.
