  1. Information technologies for healthcare delivery and management
  2. Health data acquisition, management, and visualization 
  3. Healthcare knowledge management and decision support
  4. Healthcare modeling and simulation
  5. Data analytics, data mining, and machine learning
  6. Health information system engineering
  7. Health information systems
  8. Healthcare communication networks and environments
  9. Interactions with health information technologies
The keynote speaker is Professor Sophia Ananiadou, Director of the UK National Centre for Text Mining (NaCTeM), who will speak on “Biomedical Text Mining for Semantic Search and Knowledge Discovery”.

Healthcare informatics has blossomed into a large and very relevant subject in recent years; this conference will provide a good look at it.
