This paper introduces the Information Systems and Healthcare Department of CAIS. The new department focuses on research that crosses traditional boundaries between information systems (IS) and health informatics disciplines. The purpose of the department is: 1. To increase opportunities for authors to publish health-related research to IS audiences. Submissions intended to meet this first objective should address topics that are interesting to the IS community and add value to the IS literature stream. 2. To support the efforts of researchers who conduct studies crossing IS and healthcare disciplines. Submission is encouraged for studies of the research process, tutorials, panel discussions, information system design and implementation studies, case studies, and other materials that will help researchers to create and carry out high-quality research in the area.
