is to be a prime source for both academic researchers and practitioners to advance the knowledge and practice in the interdisciplinary areas of healthcare information technology and management research. IJHISI addresses the innovative concepts and critical issues in the emerging field of health information systems and informatics.
Reviews and Testimonials
Applying computer science in medicine is challenging because of the unstructured nature of medical information. The International Jouranl of Healthcare Information Systems and Informatics (IJHISI) meets the needs of physicians and engineers bridging the gap in scientific information exchange.
– Thomas Deserno (Lehmann), Aachen University of Technology (RWTH), Germany
The health informatics initiative encompasses huge interests and investments in informatics and information systems. While there are many information sources covering healthcare issue in IT, IJHISI is timely and topical.
– Dan Zhu, Iowa State University, USA
There is ever-increasing use of information systems in healthcare, and with it growing realisation that the healthcare community need to communicate with the systems community. The role of IJHISI is to allow those working in health information systems to publish and debate their work in an environment that supports quality and rigour, without being secondary to a clinical research agenda. IJHISI allows international communication in a field where lessons can and do need to be learned from very different healthcare environments.
