Digitalisation adding value to healthcare

Zhengzhou, China

August 23-25, 2019


There have been massive amounts of digital health data stored in the medical information systems. They could be a valuable source of supporting healthcare organizations’ clinical practices and operations, public health management, and medical research if it is analyzed in meaningful ways. Digital technologies such as big data analytics and Artificial Intelligence (AI) are increasingly advocated as the emerging technologies in health care to fill this growing need. However, the adoption of digital technology in health care usually lags behind other industries, as some major technological and managerial obstacles still remain. Obstacles include the lack of health data integration, data overload issues, data privacy and security, and limited or inefficient data visualization. As a result, there is an urgent need for further research to technologically explore how to utilize digital health data to support evidence-based medicine using analytics approaches and demonstrate how big data analytics and AI can enable healthcare practitioners and policy makers to sufficiently address societal health concerns and challenges. 


The aim of DHA 2019 is to bring together a wide spectrum of researchers, industry/start-ups and healthcare practitioners. DHA 2019 covers multidisciplinary subjects that can include communities of practice and social networks, analytics and engagement with tracking and monitoring wearable devices, big data, public health surveillance, persuasive technologies, epidemic intelligence, participatory surveillance, emergency medicine, serious games for public health interventions and automated early identification of health threats and responses.
