Foundations of Health Information Engineering and Systems (FHIES 2013) - call for papers


Third International Symposium on
Foundations of Health Information Engineering and Systems

International Institute for Software Technology
United Nations University, Macau
21st-23rd August, 2013


ICT plays an increasingly enabling role in addressing the global
challenges of healthcare, in both the developed and the developing
world. The use of software in medical devices has caused growing
concerns in relation to safety and efficacy. The increasing adoption
of health information systems provides great potential benefits but
also poses severe risks, both with respect to security and privacy and
in regard to patient safety. Hospital and other information systems
raise important issues of workflow support and
interoperability. Regulators, manufacturers and clinical users have
pointed out the need to research sound and science-based engineering
methods that facilitate the development and certification of quality
ICT systems in health care. Such methods may draw from or combine
techniques from various disciplines, including but not limited to
software engineering, electronic engineering, computing science,
information science, mathematics, and industrial engineering.
