ABOUT WISH 2011
Addressing the complex interplay between human, organizational, and technological systems in healthcare is a significant research area with the potential to impact quality, safety, efficiency, and effectiveness of health care in America. However, biomedical informatics, human-computer interaction, and other research disciplines fundamental to the successful design and dissemination of interactive systems are often trapped in their disciplinary silos making significant trans-disciplinary progress challenging. This event is designed to foster conversation and bridge communities and will include specialists in biomedical informatics, nursing informatics, medical sociology, human-computer interaction, and related fields.
WISH will have an exciting program, including plenary speakers, invited panels, and the presentation of peer-reviewed research in the form of paper presentations and posters. This event is open to all interested parties, even without a submission to the workshop.
