*Special Issue on Interactive Systems for Patient-Centered Care to Enhance
Patient Engagement*

Novel interactive technologies such as mobile health applications and
health portals are increasingly designed and implemented to support patient
engagement and patient-centered care. Yet, most existing systems fall short
in adequately engaging patients and ensuring that clinical decisions are
patient-centered. This may be attributed to a number of reasons, for
example, a disconnect between system designers' understanding of clinical
work and care processes, a lack of clear protocols defining how
patient-engaged technologies should be adopted and used, and an
insufficient understanding of patients’ information needs, preferences, and

This special issue calls for submissions that conduct novel informatics
evaluations and/or develop new methodologies related to the design and
implementation of systems to support patient engagement and
patient-centered care. The special issue also intends to emphasize
cross-disciplinary research collaborations that apply conceptual,
methodological, and/or practical insights from different disciplines (e.g.,
human-computer interaction, biomedical and health informatics, or clinical
specialties). Therefore, we encourage submissions that conduct new
evaluations and/or develop methodologies in the context of
cross-disciplinary collaborations. Evidence leading to potential
generalizability in various settings will be emphasized. Description of new
ideas or prototypes without a corresponding evaluation will not be

Authors are encouraged to submit manuscripts as Research and Applications
articles, Brief Communications, or Case Studies. All articles should use or
develop novel informatics methods. Emphasis will be given to papers that
involve cross-disciplinary collaborative work involving clinical and
user-centered/systems design researchers.

Submission and Peer Review Process:

To ensure consideration in the special issue, authors should note in a
cover letter that their submission is for the “Special Issue on Interactive
Systems for Patient-Centered Care to Enhance Patient Engagement”.

Supplemental materials such as videos, illustrations, images, and/or
additional screenshots are encouraged. Detailed information for online
submission to JAMIA is available on *

All manuscripts will be subject to the rigorous JAMIA peer review process.
After the initial programmatic review, manuscripts considered within the
scope of the JAMIA special issue and that meet the quality expectations
will be reviewed by 2-3 experts for scientific merit.

Authors should format and structure their manuscripts according to the
guidelines specified at: Accepted articles
may appear in print and/or in an online JAMIA issue.
