Track Description
Health information systems (HIS) have attracted significant attention from researchers worldwide over the last decade. HIS promise better, cost-efficient and patient-centric healthcare through widespread sharing of authorized data and promoting proactive involvement by patients to sustain their own well-being. There is some early evidence that HIS, in isolation and in combination, impact care provision and administrative processes, enhance care quality, reduce healthcare costs and facilitate information sharing across organizational boundaries. However, researchers have not found consistent results and the context of examination is still central in understanding research findings. Additionally, national and regional governments worldwide have introduced several initiatives around technology use, data integration, privacy, payment models and access to care, and the commercial sector has launched several innovations in the consumer sector, which make it easier to track and consolidate individual-level data. Increasing standardization in the healthcare industry and the widespread use of HIS among health care providers, payers and consumers have enabled the creation of large datasets, which lend themselves well to predictive modeling.

This track provides a forum for presenting and discussing original research highlighting the opportunities and challenges related to the role of IT in delivering 21st century healthcare. We invite empirical, analytical, conceptual and design orientated submissions that leverage the multiple perspectives of information systems in the healthcare sector.
