Aims and Scope: Journal of Healthcare Informatics Research

Journal of Healthcare Informatics Research serves as a publication venue for the innovative technical contributions highlighting analytics, systems, and human factors research in healthcare informatics.

Journal of Healthcare Informatics Research is concerned with the application of computer science principles, information science principles, information technology, and communication technology to address problems in healthcare, and everyday wellness.  Healthcare Informatics Research highlights the most novel technical contributions in computing-oriented healthcare informatics.  Healthcare informatics covers three major tracks: (1) analytics - focuses on data analytics, knowledge discovery, predictive modeling (2) systems - focuses on building healthcare informatics systems (e.g., architecture, framework, design, engineering, and application) (3) human factors - focuses on understanding users or context, interface design, health behavior, and user studies of healthcare informatics applications.
