Health IT and Economics
November 15-16, 2013
Call for Papers now open!Deadline to submit an extended abstract is August 15th, 2013.
WHITE is a health information technology
(IT) summit that gathers prominent scholars in a multidisciplinary setting. Despite
IT’s potential to transform healthcare delivery, significant challenges remain regarding
design, implementation, utilization, and evaluation. These issues are being actively
explored in fields as diverse as medical informatics, computer science, public health,
business, and economics. Each field brings a unique perspective and insights; collectively,
these disciplinary approaches are complementary.
The mission of WHITE is to build
the foundation for a multidisciplinary health IT and economics research community,
and to stimulate new ideas with both policy and business implications. Synergies
generated from integration across individual disciplines will deepen our understanding
of health IT design and its resultant impact. Finally, this forum provides a great
venue to facilitate interaction and collaboration between academia, government,
Starting from 2010, each year WHITE attracts nearly 100 participants from
more than 40 institutes. Please check the 2012
program and 2010 program for more details.
We look forward to your participation to make WHITE even more exciting this
