|Call for Papers Submission – Deadline 31 January 2012|
|HIMSS AsiaPac 12 is calling for submission to present papers on the Asia Pacific region’s healthcare IT development. We are seeking proposals from top industry leaders and experts that will specifically address the educational needs of professionals in various sectors of healthcare regarding enterprise solutions and practical approaches to today’s healthcare IT issues.|
| Conference Topics|
Your topic should stimulate discussions and offer practical information and solutions, including a case study. It should represent the diverse healthcare needs in Asia Pacifc. Product or commercial perspectives are discouraged; however, case studies that focus on solutions to business issues may be considered.
General topic categories for HIMSS AsiaPac 2012 Call for Papers include:
HIT X.0 is the only session for healthcare IT leaders who want to be on the forefront of innovative ideas, gain exposure to cutting-edge scientific advances, and experience unique explorations in emerging technologies so that they can help the future of patient care.
The long-expected mobile revolution in healthcare is set to happen. Both healthcare providers and consumers are embracing smartphones as a means to improving healthcare.
The conference sessions will explore, examine, and debate the ways mobile technology will transform health care delivery, research, business and policy for the 21st Century in healthcare delivery.
|Home Care (Chronic Disease Management and Independent Living for the Aged)|
Chronic Disease Management (CDM) is a proactive approach to improving the health of people with chronic disease. Health care can be delivered more effectively by supporting patients with chronic diseases to take an active role in their own care and by supporting health professionals to better assist their patients in managing their illness.
This track also provides a global, cross cultural understanding of the reality of ageing in countries undergoing marked demographic changes. This helps to understand the myriad social and cultural differences in people’s experiences of ageing and health and helps to identify strategic opportunities for appropriate technologies and services for the aging population.
|Standards and Interoperability|
Conscious of the new challenges, changes, and investment, healthcare stakeholders are searching for straight forward answers to critical interoperability questions. This track will provide opportunities to learn more about standards and interoperability as industry thought leaders, health IT developers and clinician end-users converge and share their rich experiences and knowledge to these important issues during the sessions.
