Special Issue "Next Generation of Interoperability in Health Care: Standards and Application"
A special issue of International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (ISSN 1660-4601).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (1 March 2014).
Healthcare Informatics plays an important role in public health. The annual Asia-Pacific HL7 Conference on Health Care Information Standards (APHL7) convenes the vanguard international research communities in healthcare informatics. The mission of the APHL7 conference is to provide the highest‐profile academic and industrial research forum and to develop an international community that will accelerate the development and adoption of a new vision for improving health, increasing healthcare quality and, ultimately, lowering costs of health care in the Asia-Pacific region. To further promote the work presented at APHL7 2013, we are planning a Special Issue in 2014. All authors who presented papers at APHL7 2013 are invited to submit extended versions of their papers to the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (IJERPH) in this Special Issue. We also invite contributions which will increase shared understanding and adoption of healthcare informatics and related standards. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
Prof. Dr. Po-Hsun Cheng
