The main business goal in healthcare is to increase the quality of services in healthcare while reducing costs. This objective contributes to improving the quality of life of patients, and, in some cases, reducing mortality and morbidity. To achieve this goal, the use of intelligent systems in the decision process becomes essential. The Workshop on Intelligent Systems and Applications in Healthcare (ISA’Health 2016) is focused on demonstrating how to take advantages of using Computer Intelligence, ensuring interoperability and security, overcoming local and temporal barriers in order to support the needs of society, and the development of innovative systems and applications to support healthcare decision support (http://idsist.wix.com/isahealth).
This workshop will bring together researchers who are working in the area of Intelligent System and Business Informatics. The cross-domain integration and appraisal of different fields, related to Intelligent Systems and Applications, provides an atmosphere to foster a variety of perspectives and opinions.
The main goal of this Special Issue is to extend the best workshop papers, presenting innovative and exciting works and promoting a discussion about how Intelligent Systems can contribute to improve the quality of the decision process in healthcare.
