The field of health informatics has revolutionized the face of health
care in the past decade. Informatics based solutions have not only
changed the way in which information is collected and stored but also
played a crucial role in the management and delivery of healthcare.
Intelligent and automated data processing has never been more
important than it is today. In recent years, intelligent systems have
emerged as a promising tool for solving problems in various healthcare
related domains. With the advent of various swift data acquisition
systems and recent developments in the health care information
technology, huge amounts of data have been amassed in different forms.
One of the key challenges in this domain is to build intelligent
systems for effectively modeling, organizing and interpreting the
available healthcare data. This ACM Transactions on Intelligent
Systems and Technology (ACM TIST) special issue seeks articles
discussing fundamental principles, algorithms or applications of
intelligent data acquisition, processing and analysis of healthcare
data. This special issue will respond to the research challenges by
encouraging researchers in the computing world to bring to bear novel
techniques, combinations of tools, and so forth to build effective
ways to handling, retrieving and making use of healthcare data.
We are particularly interested in system-oriented papers, in which the
approaches are accompanied by an in-depth experimental evaluation with
real world data.
Topics of interest include but not limited to:
• Data analytics for clinical care
• Biomarker discovery and biomedical data mining
• Intelligent Medical data management
• Predictive modeling for personalized treatment
• Data integration for healthcare
• Medical recommender systems
• Optimization models for planning and recommending therapies
• Healthcare knowledge abstraction, classification and summarization
• Effective Information retrieval for healthcare applications
• Semantic Web, linked data, ontology, and healthcare
• Text mining for biomedical literature and clinical notes
• Intelligent systems for electronic health records
• Computational intelligence methodologies for healthcare
• Computer-aided diagnosis
• Medical signal analysis and processing
• Intelligent medical devices and sensors
• Continuous monitoring and streaming technologies for healthcare
• Collaboration technologies for healthcare
• E-communities, social networks, and social media for patients and caregivers
• Virtual and augmented reality for healthcare
• Intelligent User-interfaces for medical devices and software
• Visual analytics for healthcare
• Privacy issues in healthcare
• Healthcare workflow management
• Systems for Telemedicine
• Healthcare delivery in developing countries
