Meeting Description

The Advanced Health Informatics conference is a new GRC starting in 2016. The steadily growing aging population, worldwide prevalence of chronic diseases, and outbreaks of infectious diseases are some of the urgent global health challenges of our present-day society. To address these unmet healthcare needs, health informatics which deals with the acquisition, transmission, processing, storage, retrieval and use of information has emerged as an active area of interdisciplinary research to enhance the quality and efficiency of health care, to realize the early diagnosis and treatment of major diseases as well as to respond to public health emergencies. This GRC will focus on the new frontiers of health information acquisition, information transmissions via wireless/mobile internets, and big data processing/mining for health.

The conference will be multi-disciplinary in nature, covering a wide range of expertise in life science, computer science, health engineering, biomedical engineering, and biomedicine. We hope that this conference can serve as a unique platform for further developments in interdisciplinary research and education in this emerging and growing area of health informatics.
