2nd International Conference on Big Data and Analytics in Healthcare, July
22-24, Singapore

Conference website: http://www.bdah.org



Big data analytics is already making large impacts in finance,
manufacturing, retail, and social networks. Healthcare, too, is beginning
to experience a data tsunami due to the rapid adoption of information
systems generating huge volumes of primary and secondary data. To stay
competitive and effective, healthcare organizations should prepare to brace
themselves for the oncoming data deluge.

The International Conference on Big Data and Analytics in Healthcare (BDAH
2014) provides a leading forum for researchers, healthcare administrators,
care-providers, and policy makers to disseminate and share cutting-edge
research and practice and gain insights into the challenges, opportunities,
novel strategies, and analytic tools and techniques for dealing with big
data in healthcare.


High quality and relevant papers from the conference will be fast-tracked
to special issues of Information Systems Frontiers (
and Methods of Information in Medicine (pending final approval).

The BDAH 2014 Program Committee invites submissions of completed papers,
poster papers, abstract presentations, and pre-conference workshop
proposals that advance knowledge of healthcare data analytics. More details
about the submission types and formats can be found at the conference
website (http://www.bdah.org/submissions.html). Submissions will be
accepted through EasyChair (

Completed papers are full-length papers of completed research or practice
projects. Accepted completed papers will be presented at BDAH 2014 and
published in the BDAH 2014 proceedings. See list below for potential topics
of interest.

Poster papers are the preferred format for presenting preliminary results
or results of small scale studies, illustrating and discussing innovative
systems and services, describing experimental and in-practice projects and
programs, reporting experiences with educational programs, and other
dimensions of healthcare data analytics. Accepted papers will be presented
as posters at BDAH 2014 and published in the BDAH 2014 proceedings. See
list below for potential topics of interest.

Abstract papers format allows for the presentation of research or practice
for which the author wishes to reserve publication rights for future
consideration. Accepted abstract papers will be presented at BDAH 2014 but
only the abstract will be published in the proceedings. See list below for
potential topics of interest.

Pre-conference Workshop Proposal Half-day workshops are dedicated to
special topics that are of interest to the conference audience. Half-day
workshops include three and a half (3.5) hours of instruction. The
conference seeks a balance between workshops that address essential theory
and principles, with those that address practical applications, current
issues, and emerging trends and developments. All presenters should be
available to conduct their workshop on Tuesday July 22.


We welcome empirical, technical, conceptual, or practice papers in relevant
areas including but not limited to the following topics:

Techniques for Big Data Analytics in Healthcare
   * Knowledge discovery (e.g., text/data mining) by integrating data
across care settings and EHR applications (e.g., results review, medication
administration, disease progression, and image management)
   * Developing and refining EHR data standards to improve analytical
   * Visualization of big health/healthcare data for sense-making and
   * Assuring information system security and personal privacy
   * Identifying, representing, and modeling biological structures
   * Statistical analyses of large health/healthcare datasets
   * Predictive analytics for identifying health risks
   * Deriving data insights from mobile health, web 2.0, social media
(e.g., online health communities) and wearable computing technologies
   * Linking biomedical knowledge from diverse primary sources (e.g.,
automated indexing, classification)
   * Empirical research involving big data and/or data analytics

Applications of Big Data Analytics in Healthcare
   * Health services perspectives
      * Data-driven optimal planning and scheduling
      * Using analytics to improve healthcare outcomes (patient safety,
medical error reduction etc.)
      * Developing data-driven systems that better support patient-provider
      * Improving healthcare workflow and process efficiency
      * Supporting practice at a distance (telehealth)
   * Clinical perspectives
      * Bioinformatics
      * Personalized medicine
      * Developing systems to support and improve diagnostic accuracy
      * Clinical decision support systems
      * Providing just-in-time access to the biomedical literature & other
health information
      * Translational research integration - integrating biological
knowledge to clinical care
   * Public health perspectives
      * Improving government and community policy relevant to health quality
      * Detecting disease outbreaks & biological threats
      * Monitoring and managing population health
      * Delivering health information and knowledge to the public
   * Consumer health perspectives
      * Personal health records
      * Self-care systems
      * Social media
      * Internet health
