Since the late 1960s, “the Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences (HICSS) has been known worldwide as the longest-standing working scientific conferences in Information Technology Management” (Website HICSS). In 2019, one of the tracks is dedicated to the health sector. “Addressing the complexities of today’s healthcare issues requires more than one perspective. The Information Technology in Healthcare Track serves as a forum at which healthcare, computer science, and information systems professionals can come together to discuss issues related to the application of information technology in healthcare. In bringing technical, behavioral, clinical, and managerial perspectives together, this track provides a unique opportunity to generate new insights into healthcare problems and solutions.” (Website HICSS) The track includes the minitrack “Security and Privacy Challenges for Healthcare”: “Digitizing healthcare services can provide many new benefits and opportunities. However, it can also introduce new research challenges in terms of protecting the security and privacy security of patient data and electronic health records.” (Website HICSS) In the year 2019, the conference will take place on the island of Maui. Paper submission deadline is 15 June 2018, 11:59 pm HST. Further information is available on the HICSS website.
