Clinical Informatics Case Study Abstracts

650 words

Abstracts are invited from investigators working in a clinical environment about data projects aimed at improving the day-to-day delivery of patient care. Projects may focus on clinician workflows, communication, decision support, patient education and safety. Projects ideally have been implemented and evaluated in a clinical setting, and are potentially transferrable to other sites.

Submissions are encouraged across a range of healthcare settings including public and private hospitals, nursing, primary care, indigenous, aged and community care and multi-cultural services.

Thank you
We would like to thank all of our reviewers for their contribution to the program, their role is vital and we appreciate their time and effort.

New this year! MeSH descriptors

HISA is introducing Medical Subject Headings (MeSH) an additional way to classify research and practice submissions.

  • Select at least one primary category keyword from the 46 available terms (see submission guidelines for keywords).
  • Clearly described detailed submission options eliminates the one-size-fits-all submission process.
  • Closer matching between the submission content and peer reviewer expertise.
  • Opens participation to include a broader range of innovative, high-quality work throughout biomedicine and healthcare.

HISA is adopting this ‘international’ approach to give increased international recognition to papers by being more rigorous about identifying our work within the established parameters of the discipline. Further, it brings us in line with the approach recently adopted by the international heath informatics conferences.
