ABOUT WISH 2014

Addressing the complex interplay among human, organizational, and technological systems in healthcare is critically important. At the intersection of these systems lies a significant research area that has the potential to impact the quality, safety, efficiency, and effectiveness of health care in America. Given the recent emphasis on health information technology (HIT) solutions as part of the ongoing efforts towards healthcare reform and in conjunction with the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, these issues are timely and of utmost priority to be addressed. HIT and interactive health care systems have the potential for supporting a wide variety of stakeholders, from patients to providers, individuals to institutions, and policymakers at all levels — both corporate and governmental. However, biomedical informatics, human-computer interaction (HCI), and other research areas related to HIT are often confined in their disciplinary silos making significant trans-disciplinary progress challenging. Discussions at highly specialized conferences, or tracks within conferences, can become deep but disjointed: investigating particular issues in detail but sometimes missing the meta-context and issues from other relevant disciplines represented by specific presentations and conferences.

At WISH 2014, researchers and practitioners with interests in health information technology will come together to promote deeper and more profound connections among the biomedical informatics, human-computer interaction, medical sociology and anthropology communities. The gathering of these communities in a focused conference will lead to the development of new methods, approaches, and techniques to improve the design, adoption, and use of health information technology (HIT). This workshop is designed to foster conversation, bridge communities, and develop a shared body of knowledge.

WISH 2014 will offer an exciting program, including keynote speeches, panels, technical paper presentations, and poster exhibitions.
