MIXHS11 Challenges and Visions Award

The following is a special contribution to this blog from Cui Tao and Matt-Mouley Bouamrane, the organizing chairs of the First International Workshop on Managing Interoperability and compleXity in Health Systems in October 2011 in Scotland UK.

We were delighted to host a successful Vision and Challenge Track at the First International Workshop on Managing Interoperability and compleXity in Health Systems (MIXHS 2011). MIXHS 2011 is a forum focussing on recent research and technical results in knowledge management and information systems in bio-medical and electronic health systems. The workshop is designed for providing an opportunity for sharing practical experiences and best practices in e-Health information infrastructure development and management. Of particular interest to the workshop themes are technical solutions to recurring issues in practical systems deployment,including harnessing the complexity of bio-medical domain knowledge and the interoperability of heterogeneous health systems. The workshop has gathered experts, researchers, system developers, practitioners, and policymakers for discussing designing and implementing solutions for managing clinical data and integrating existing and future eHealth systems infrastructures.

The Vision and Challenge Track invited submissions of short papers in the areas of interest of the main event that: 1) described revolutionary ideas that are likely to guide research in the near future; 2) challenged existing assumptions prevalent in the research community; and 3) identified novel applications and technology trends that create new research challenges. Eight papers have been accepted to the vision and challenge track. Of these 8, three were chosen for CCC visionary awards. The prizes took the form of travel reimbursement awards totaling $1,000, $750, and $500 for first, second, and third place, respectively.

Here are the detailed information about the three awardees:

The awards were selected according reviewer's recommendation using a double-blind review process. The recommendations were reviewed by the award committee to select the final three awardees.
