Workshop Scope and Objectives
The importance of health and aged care for human health and wellbeing, challenged by population ageing and healthcare workforce shortage, has seen e-health emerging, high on the government reform agenda in both developed and developing countries around the world. As an emerging scientific field, the research agenda in e-health is yet to be shaped and developed by service science community. A one-day workshop on e-health is organised in conjunction with ICISO 2014. The main aim of the workshop is to bring together members of academia, industry and healthcare business to present recent advances in the field of e-health. The most welcome are high quality interdisciplinary papers on utilization of service science for e-health innovation or enhance existing healthcare systems and services, and exploring opportunities for future collaboration and research exchange.
