Prof. Manfred Reichert is co-chair of the joined 6th Int'l Workshop on Process-Oriented Information Systems in Healthcare (ProHealth'12) and 5th Int'l Workshop on Knowledge Representation for Health Care (KR4HC'12). Manfred Reichert shares this task with his colleagues Richard Lenz (University of Nurnberg-Erlangen), Silvia Miksch (Vienna University of Technology), Mor Peleg (University of Haifa), David Riaño (Universitat Rovira i Virgili), and Annette ten Teije (Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam).
The ProHealth'13 / KR4HC'12 workshop will be held in conjunction with the 14th Int'l Conference on Artificial Intelligence in Medicine (AIME'13) in Murcia, Spain at June 1st, 2013.
Summary: This joint workshop brings together two approaches: healthcare process support, as addressed in previous ProHealth workshops, and healthcare knowledge representation as dealt with in previous KR4HC workshops. The workshop shall elaborate both the potential and the limitations of the two approaches for supporting healthcare process & healthcare knowledge management as well as clinical decision-making. It shall further provide a forum wherein challenges, paradigms, and tools for optimized knowledge-based clinical process support can be debated. We want to bring together researchers and practitioners from these different, yet similar fields to improve the understanding of domain specific requirements, methods and theories, tools and techniques, and the gaps between IT support and healthcare processes yet to be closed. This forum also provides an opportunity to explore how the approaches from the two communities could be better integrated.
