International Workshop on Smart Health and Wellbeing (SHB 2012) - Oct 29, 2012

International Workshop on Smart Health and Wellbeing (SHB 2012) - Oct 29, 2012

Although a substantial effort has been spent on healthcare, preventable medical errors are still inevitable due to fragmentation of medical information. In recent years, a significant effort has been placed on advancing information technology for effective healthcare and wellness in both academic and industrial applications.

There is increased effort to transform reactive care to proactive and preventive care, clinic-centric to patient-centered practice, training-based interventions to globally aggregated evidence, and episodic response to continuous well-being monitoring and maintenance.

To successfully address the challenge of smart health and wellbeing we need to include the following-

(a) an interoperable, digital infrastructure of shareable health data and knowledge

(b) utilizing diverse data to provide automated and augmented insight, discovery, and evidence-based health and wellness decision support

(c) a cyber-based empowering of patients and healthy individuals that enables them to play a substantial role in their own health and treatment

(d) monitoring and assisting individuals using intelligent systems (including sensors, devices, and robotics) to maintain function and independence.

This workshop is organized to develop a platform for authors to discuss fundamental principles, algorithms or applications of intelligent data acquisition, processing and analysis of healthcare data. We are particularly interested in information and knowledge management papers, in which the approaches are accompanied by an in-depth experimental evaluation with real world data.

The topics of interest of the proposed workshop include but not limited to:

I. Better access to relevant information: sharing, integrating and providing information

II. Improving the clinical practice and training

III. Combining, augmenting, integrating and mining clinical and medical data

IV. Assistive, persuasive and intelligent devices and software for medical care and health monitoring

V. Global systems for population monitoring and large-scale data analysis and management
