    BCS Health Informatics Scotland (HIS)

    Glasgow, UK, 2 - 3 September 2014

    The BCS Health Informatics Scotland (HIS) took place on 2-3rd of September 2014 in the Grand Central hotel in Glasgow. The BCS HIS conference is the largest eHealth / Health Informatics conference in Scotland. A key feature of our conference is that we have an excellent mix of speakers from Government, the NHS, industry exhibitors and academics from all the main universities of Scotland. Having successfully introduced a research track since the 2012 conference, we are now proud to publish for the first time conference proceedings in the BCS Electronic Workshops in Computing, eWiC, with a conference special issue to follow shortly (Health Informatics journal).

    In addition to the research track, the 2014 conference themes were: Clinical Quality and eHealth, Health and Social Care Integration and Business Analytics for health management. The reader of the proceedings will see that the proceedings provide a good overview of these conference topics. We had several submission categories and this is also reflected in the proceedings, which include a selection of full research papers, position papers, extended abstract and work in progress papers as well as workshop summaries. The research published in the proceedings span across Scottish Universities and the NHS, including submission from National Service Scotland, the University of Aberdeen, the University of Dundee, the University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh Napier University, the University of Glasgow, the University of Strathclyde and Glasgow Caledonian University.
