International Conference on ICT in HealthCare Management (HealthCare 2016) is an international referred conference dedicated to the advancement of HealthCare Management, especially the use of technology to transform healthcare and patients experience. We welcome new and innovative contributions that provide insight to theoretical underpinnings, foundational research, methods and practical implementation of healthcare management, advances in the implementation, design and operation of medical gadgets and wearable for health and fitness, and security and safety implications and consequences.

 

The aim of the HealthCare 2016 is to encourage participation and promotion of collaborative scientific, industrial and academic inter-workings among individual researchers, practitioners, members of existing associations, academia, standardisation bodies, and including government departments and agencies. The purpose is to build bridges between academia and industry, and to encourage interplay of different cultures.

 

HealthCare 2016 invites researchers and industry practitioners to submit papers that encompass principles, analysis, design, methods and applications. All submitted papers are independently peer-reviewed.
