The following workshop will be co-located with ICHI 2017.

International Workshop on Healthcare Knowledge Discovery and Management (IHKDM)

Brief summary:

Healthcare informatics research is a scientific endeavor that investigates the use of informatics and data science approaches for addressing healthcare needs in order to optimize both health service and patient care outcomes. With the wide adoption of electronic health records (EHRs) as well as the movement of big data, there is a need to the use of informatics and data science techniques to conduct dynamic and intelligent learning from complicated healthcare data. This workshop will provide a forum for computer scientists, healthcare informaticians, biostatistician, and clinical participants to share novel findings on their latest investigations in leveraging informatics and data science techniques for healthcare data.
