Call For Papers

Health data differs from other industries' data in terms of structure, context, importance, volatility, availability, traceability, liquidity, change speed, usage and sources from which it is collected. As medicine is a constantly developing science, healthcare sector also. In this new emerging research area which stands at the intersection of several different discipline such as Medicine, Behavioral Science, Supply Chain Management or Big Data Analytics, techniques, methods, applications and devices are continuously developed to be used for the acquisition, storage, processing, analysis, standardization and optimization of every process in the health sector. As healthcare sector is so challenging and related data are consistently explosive, healthcare organizations are focusing to become smarter in order to overcome the industry’s inefficiencies to improving quality of care. “To become smarter” requires an impeccable data analytics. All stakeholders in the sector should reveal the deep value of this valuable data in order to apply insights to improve quality of care, clinical outcomes and deliver personalized healthcare value, while reducing medical costs, collaborate across care settings to deliver integrated, personalized care experiences, prevent disease, promote wellness and manage care, build flexibility into operations to support cost reduction and excellence in clinical and business performance and practices

The general purpose of this special session in IEEE BigData 2019 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.
