The mission of the International Journal of Healthcare Information Systems and Informatics (IJHISI) 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.

Editor(s)-in-Chief Biography

Joseph Tan (Dip, BA, MS, PhD) holds a professional diploma in civil engineering from Singapore Polytechnic, an undergraduate degree in mathematics and computer science from Wartburg College, a master’s degree in industrial & management engineering from the University of Iowa, and a PhD in management information systems from the University of British Columbia (UBC). He has been a tenured associate professor teaching in the Department of Healthcare & Epidemiology at UBC for many years prior to serving as a professor and Head of Information System and Manufacturing (ISM) Department at the School of Business at Wayne State University.

Joseph has published research in computing, ergonomics, information systems, health informatics, health education, e-health, and e-business journals and has served as guest editor and member of various journal editorial boards. He sits on key organizing committees for local, national, and international meetings and conferences. Professor Tan’s research, which has enjoyed significant support in the last several years from local, national and international funding agencies and other sources, has also been widely cited and applied across a number of major disciplines, including healthcare informatics and clinical decision support, health technology management research, human processing of graphical representations, ergonomics, health administration education, telehealth, mobile health, and e-health promotion programming.
