What is AI in Healthcare Informatics?
Healthcare informatics focuses on the efficient and effective acquisition, management, and use of information in healthcare. Advancing health informatics has been declared a Grand Challenge by the National Academy of Engineering and is a major area of emphasis for agencies such as the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. As such, it has been identified as an area of national need. Sample uses of AI in health informatics includes expert systems for decision support, machine learning and data mining to discover patterns across patients, image analysis to assist in diagnosis, and natural language processing to extract information from free text medical documents.
What is the GOAL of the track?
A strength of FLAIRS is the diversity of areas represented by attendees. The goal of this track is to broaden participation by encouraging researchers in healthcare to submit and attend.
Who might be interested?
The track should be of interest to both computer scientists as well as researchers and providers in medicine.
What kind of studies will be of interest?
Papers and contributions are encouraged for any work relating to AI in Healthcare Informatics. Topics of interest may include (but are in no way limited to)
Interested authors should format their papers according to AAAI formatting guidelines. The papers should be original work (i.e., not submitted, in submission, or submitted to another conference while in review). Papers should not exceed 6 pages (4 pages for a poster) and are due by November 19, 2018. For FLAIRS-32, the 2019 conference, the reviewing is a double blind process.

Note: do not use a fake name for your EasyChair login - your EasyChair account information is hidden from reviewers. Authors should indicate the AI in Health Informatics special track for submissions. The proceedings of FLAIRS will be published by the AAAI. Authors of accepted papers will be required to sign a form transferring copyright of their contribution to AAAI. FLAIRS requires that there be at least one full author registration per paper.
Please, check the website http://www.flairs-32.info/ for further information.
