6th International Workshop on Infrastructures for Healthcare (IHC)

Infrastructures for governance, quality improvement and service efficiency

Organizing institutions: Aarhus University, Fondazione Bruno Kessler

Aarhus, Denmark: 22nd – 23rd of June 2017

Deadline for paper submission: 20th of February 2017

ICT and information infrastructures (electronic patient records, telemedicine, laboratory systems, etc) are regarded as having a strategic role in dealing with complex issues in healthcare, for supporting clinical personnel in their daily work as well as for providing decision support, improving efficiency and workflow across institutional, departmental and professional boundaries.

Visions and hopes for digitization of healthcare have been launched since the early 1960, but only during the last decade have these materialized beyond stand-alone systems as infrastructures connecting professions, units and domains. The sheer complexity of this high-reliability, high-risk domain has proven challenging, and many experiments and pilot test have been necessary.

Today, healthcare staff and managers as well as administrators look forward to reap the fruits of the long-term investment into developing healthcare infrastructures: The use of healthcare data to improve governance, service quality and efficiency is increasingly at the center of attention.

We wish to bring international researchers, healthcare professionals, IT professionals, administrators, and IT enterprises together to discuss these issues (See Call for Participation). We particularly invite contributions that are methodologically based on ethnographic/case/field studies.

Infrastructures for Healthcare” is a biennial workshop. Previous workshops were held in different universities in Copenhagen, Denmark (2007, 2009, and 2011), the Arctic University of Norway (Tromsø), Norway (2013), and Fondazione Bruno Kessler and University of Trento, Italy (2015). The sixth edition will take place in Aarhus, Denmark. The workshop will be co-organized with Aarhus University and Fondazione Bruno Kessler, Trento, Italy.

Workshop papers will be published in the EUSSET digital library (www.eusset.eu). Selected papers from the workshop will be invited to submit an extended version to a special issue of the International Journal of Computer Supported Cooperative Work.
