Context Sensitive Health Informatics is about health information technologies and their environments. Environments may be people in different roles such as users, designers, and evaluators, but also non-human constructs such as organizations, work practices, guidelines and protocols, buildings and markets. We invite original contributions addressing the conference theme.
The last decades have seen the development and the implementation of numerous innovations along with the emergence of the awareness that innovations and technologies should be sustainable. Innovative technologies are developed for and implemented in health facilities and national health systems to improve the patient experience of care, the overall health of populations, and to reduce the per capita cost of healthcare. Yet, health structures, systems, their users (patients, relatives, professionals), and their needs may change at fast pace: national and local health policies evolve, infrastructures and other technologies are upgraded or grow old, users’ profiles and their needs may change.
In these moving sociotechnical contexts, how sustainable and context sensitive are healthcare innovations and our researches in the field? What level/temporal span of sustainability should we aim for and how to achieve it?
In light of these questions, the conference encourages (but does not restrict) submissions in the following topics:
You are invited to submit a full paper - 5 / 6 pages (including the title, authors' names and affiliations, abstract, keywords, main text and references; abstract must be 100 / 200 words) - describing original research or work-in-progress relevant to the conference theme. To meet the requirements of an IOS Press serie you should use the template below. Accepted papers will be published in a web-only, full open access IOS Press serie of “Studies in Health Technology and Informatics” and indexed in PubMed.
Best paper and best student paper will be awarded
Is winter coming for e-health? How to learn from Netflix to implement EHR? Could health technology be as sustainable as Madonna?
The Science Slam gives participants eight minutes to present their research and ideas in an entertaining or unusual way. Stand-up comedy, live music, a live experiment, or something else completely: anything is possible! (for inspiration, have a look here, here or here). The audience forms the jury that will decide who wins the prizes.
Students and recent graduates are encouraged to apply by sending a short summary and description of their science slam to firstname.lastname@example.org by June 15th 2019.
IMPORTANT: if you apply to both science slam and conference papers, both proposals should be different.
On Thursday 22th afternoon, PhD students, independent of the advancement into their PhD, will have the opportunity to present their work and their research problems to international senior academics to get their feedback, advice and guidance.
If you are interested by this free doctoral symposium, please send a 500 words abstract following the structure: Title of your work, Name, affiliation, email address, Supervisory team, A main description of your research work (Introduction to problem being addressed, Contribution to the field, The (proposed) approach, Evaluation and future work). The abstract should be sent to email@example.com by March 17th .
You are of course welcome to submit a conference paper on the same topic as your abstract for the doctoral symposium.

She is a Fellow of the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society and a Fellow of the International Ergonomics Association. In 2016, she received the John M. Eisenberg Patient Safety and Quality Award for Individual Achievement. In 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018, Becker’s Hospital Review selected her as one of the 50 experts leading the field of patient safety. She received her Engineer diploma from the Ecole Centrale de Paris, France, and her Ph.D. in Industrial Engineering from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
Tommaso Bellandi is a certified Ergonomist/Human Factors Engineer (Eur.Erg.). He is currently Director of Patient Safety at the Northwest Trust of the Tuscany’s Health Service, which is a big public organization with around 12 thousand employees, providing health and social services to 1.5 million people. He previously worked from 2004 to 2018 at the Centre for Clinical Risk Management and Patient Safety of the Tuscany Region, where he was deputy director and responsible for the Reporting and Learning System from patient safety incidents. He is Advisor and former Chair of the WHO Collaborating Centre on human factors and communication for the delivery of safe and quality care. He is Adjunct Professor of ergonomics and patient safety at the University of Florence and at the Sant’Anna School of Advanced Studies in Pisa. He is the scientific director of training programs and teacher of communication and management of working groups in continuing education in many Italian hospitals, using experimental simulation and role-playing methods.

The « Structure Fédérative de Recherche – Technologies pour la Santé et Médicament (SFR -TSM). The project of the Federative Research Structure (FRS) has three main goals. First, consolidate research axes that have proven their value. Second, facilitate and increase the collaborations between axes through joint projects. Third, implement the 3 cross-disciplinary research axes: (i) e-health, data re-use and medical logistics, (ii) medications and biomaterials, (iii) bio-engineering, assisted gestures, and medical devices.
The European Federation for Medical Informatics Association (EFMI) is the leading organization in medical informatics in Europe and represents 32 countries. EFMI is concerned with the theory and practice of Information Science and Technology within Health and Health Science. EFMI’s Human and Organizational Factors of Medical Informatics (HOFMI) working group aims (i) to establish a network of researchers and practitioners, (ii) to organize workshops, panels and tutorials at the Medical Informatics Europe (MIE) conference, (iii) to disseminate knowledge about the role of human and organizational factors in the use of healthcare technologies, and (iv) to support exchange and discussion between researchers and practitioners as well as European collaborations.
