Aims and Scope

Healthcare encompasses a wide number of models, services and systems that are continuously changing together with healthcare environments. The role of intelligent systems, in this field, is not only to organize and handle the information mining and distribution, but also to make human-computer interaction processes simple and effective, in one word, usable. In accordance with their goal, IT systems can be designed around the patient, rather than around the healthcare practitioners, such as doctors, technicians, and nurses. In both cases, they have to simplify the way users can visualize, edit and interact with medical data. This invited session at KES-IIMSS 2009 provides a forum for researchers and practitioners to present and discuss advances in the research and development of usable intelligent systems and their application in this field.
