    Health Information Science and Systems is a multidisciplinary journal that aims to integrate computer science/information technology with health science and services, embracing information science research coupled with topics related to the modeling, design, development, integration, and management of health information systems.

    Health Information Science and Systems is an international, archival, peer-reviewed, multidisciplinary, open access journal covering all aspects of the health information sciences and the systems that support this information. The scope includes i) medical/health/biomedicine information resources, such as patient medical records, devices and equipments, software and tools to capture, store, retrieve, process, analyze, optimize the use of information in the health domain, ii) data management, data mining, and knowledge discovery, all of which play a key role in decision making, management of public health, examination of standards, privacy and security issues, iii) development of new architectures and applications for health information systems. Health Information Science and Systems' topical coverage includes, but is not restricted to, the following subjects:

    • Information systems including electronic health records, hospital information systems, data¬† exchange and integration
    • Health service delivery, workflow
    • Data mining, knowledge discovery, decision making support
    • System interoperability, ontology and standardization
    • Bioinformatics
    • Biomedical informatics
    • Brain informatics
    • Telemedicine
    • Health data management
    • Health database and information-system integration
    • Health information extraction
    • Health information services
    • Health information-system modeling, design, and development
    • Health information visualization
    • Support tools and languages for health information-system development

    Health Information Science and Systems seeks articles on research methods and conceptual insights that are healthcare motivated but could potentially be applied broadly in diverse domains, both within and outside healthcare context. Methods may be drawn from information technology, computer science, bioinformatics, biomedicine, decision science, cognitive science, psychology, management science, and statistics. Articles emphasizing information management and knowledge representation/modeling issues that arise from the storage and use of health informatics will also be considered. System descriptions are welcome if they illustrate and substantiate the underlying methodology.
