This year WISH will be co-located with the American Medical Informatics Association’s (AMIA) Fall Symposium in Washington, DC at the Washington Hilton through support from the following organizations:



The WISH 2011 program has been posted along with the list of accepted papers. We are also pleased to announce the keynote speakers for this year’s workshop: Dr. Elizabeth Mynatt (Georgia Institute of Technology) and Dr. William Stead (Vanderbilt University).

Registration is now open.


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.

If you have any questions about WISH, please contact the workshop organizers at wish2011amia@gmail.com.
