There is a reawakening of enthusiasm for Healthcare topics at AMCIS, witnessed, too, by the formation of a Healthcare SIG. At the same time, numerous AMCIS attendees lamented the challenges of developing an effective and contemporary undergraduate and graduate curriculum for Healthcare MIS. The field is growing rapidly, and includes diverse healthoriented topics and sub-specialties like bioinformatics, nursing informatics, home healthcare technologies, telemedicine, privacy and security, e-Health, and a wide range of patient-, clinical- and managerial-decision support systems. For this panel we have assembled a well-seasoned group of speakers and educators to advance our collective ability to teach “state of the art” courses in this critically important area.
