Context Sensitive Health Informatics<>
A joint IMIA sponsored pre-MedInfo conference from the Human Factors Engineering and the Organizational and Social Issues in Health Informatics IMIA working groups will be held in Copenhagen at the prestigious Danish Institute for Medical Simulation at Herlev Hospital on August 17th and 18th, 2013.
Socio-technical effects on clinical systems interact with the systems user-centered design to affect the usability of clinical systems. Knowing that these systems affect the quality and safety of care that patient's receive, it is of the utmost importance that we work to understand these interactions so that we can better serve the patients and their families that have entrusted to us their care.
We encourage you to submit to this important, stimulating and informative meeting which brings together these two related working groups to share their talents and energies and to lead a discussion that will outlast surely this meeting.
Accepted papers will be published by IOS press and will be indexed in Medline.
Deadline:  February 8th, 2013
Please submit papers of up to 6 pages in the IOS press format<> with abstracts of 100-200 words to [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>.
Manuscripts that address both Socio-technical and related to Human Factors will be given the highest priority by the scientific program committee, however all submissions will be reviewed.
Please join us and help the Informatics community to better understand the interaction between and best practice of Socio-Technical Health Informatics and Human Factors Engineering in Health Informatics. For more information see:
Sincerely yours,

Program committee

Onderwerp: pre-Medinfo conference Context Sensitive Health Informatics

Dear colleagues,
The pre-Medinfo conference Context Sensitive Health Informatics will be held on August 17 and 18, 2013 in the Herlev Hospital in Copenhagen, Denmark.
This conference builds on the sociotechnical and Human Factors HIT conferences that have been held since 2001. Accepted papers will be published in the IOS Press series "Studies in Health technology and Informatics" and indexed in PubMed. The website is:
The conference is endorsed by the International Medical Informatics Association, the European Federation for Medical Informatics and the American Medical Informatics Association.
The deadline for submitting a paper to the pre-Medinfo conference "Context Sensitive Health Informatics" is February 1, 2013.
Examples of empirical and conceptual study questions that might be asked are:

  *   How could the sociotechnical and human factors research community help prevent major failures of large health informatics programs (e.g. Connecting for Health, NHS)?
  *   How can sociotechnical / HF considerations help ensure all relevant stakeholders are on board for the design, implementation, usage survey and evaluation of health IT systems?
  *   How do technology and clinical work practices intertwine?
  *   How sociotechnical / HF methods and concepts can support or enhance or comply with new safety regulations and initiatives for health IT (e.g. the new European Medical Device Directive, US certification for meaningful use, FDA regulation of EHRs and Medical Devices, etc.)?
  *   How can sociotechnical / HF knowledge and practice improve the adoption, efficacy and safety of the innovation-to-market process for health IT?
  *   How can we integrate sociotechnical and human factors considerations to improve the overall design process?
  *   How can we take advantage of computerized systems to (semi-) automatically track context related usability and use issues of health IT?
  *   How can the role of the citizen and the patients be enhanced in complex health IT contexts?
  *   How does the ageing population impact the development of new health technologies?

Please feel free to forward this announcement to any person who might be interesting in this conference as well.

On behalf of the SCPC,
