AMCIS 2016: 22nd Americas Conference on Information Systems

Date: August 11-13, 2016, San Diego, CA

Track: Healthcare Informatics and Information

Mini-track: Information Technology for Global Health

You are invited to submit a paper to the AMCIS 2016 conference to the mini-track on: “Information
Technology for Global Health”, mini-track at the 22nd Americas Conference on Information Systems (AMCIS) to be held in San Diego,California on August 11-13, 2016.

As global interconnectedness increases, the impact of health problems are not efficiently addressed from a purely national standpoint.

Therefore, a concerted effort among governments, multidisciplinary efforts, and other institutions, in efforts that span national boundaries, is the new emerging approach to deal with these issues. This approach, known as global health,entails using this multidimensional approach to address transnational health issues, specifically including HIV/AIDS, rural healthcare service delivery,and other health issues affecting the world population.

This minitrack will explore emerging trends for
applying innovative health IT solutions to improve
general population and community healthcare across the globe, including low-cost, mobile and other emerging health technological applications.

These solutions will provide a multinational perspective on the benefits of mobile health and other emerging information technologies and describes different examples and applications implemented. This minitrack will consider empirical research, reviews of current literature, theory, methodology, as well as relevant position papers and suitable research in progress papers.

The following types of submissions are among those that will be considered:
- Reviews of global health IT development
- Comparisons of regional strategies and applications
- Proposals for development, extensions and improvements of global health innovations and solutions
- Examination of strategies and approaches of
technology transfer among different countries (e.g,
global health IT governance; multi-national health services networks and architectures, open source applications, etc.)
- Analytics, data science, data mining or intelligence studies related to global health
- Studies on the impact of the adoption of innovative (e.g., low-cost) technologies
- Specific applications, including epidemiological
surveillance systems, emergency and disaster
response systems, and chronic disease management systems
- Public health and environmental health monitoring and tracking systems
- Methodological issues pertaining to the evaluation of global health technologies and initiatives
- Socio-cultural-policy assessments of Health IT
- Trans-jurisdictional issues surrounding the
implementation of Health technologies and initiatives
- Impact of regional strategies and culture of nature
and styles of Health IT implementation
