(Formerly the SIG-Health Pre-ICIS Workshop)

An AIS SIG-Health Sponsored Workshop

Date/Time: Friday, August 11, 2023 at 7:00 PM local time, Panama City, Panama

Theme: The Deep Waters of Healthcare IT

HITS (formerly the SIG-Health Pre-ICIS Workshop) will this year be a pre-conference activity of the Americas Conference on Information Systems (AMCIS) hosted by the Special Interest Group Health IT (SIGHEALTH). It provides a forum for those working on information technology in the context of healthcare. We welcome both research-in-progress and completed work on a broad range of topics and methodologies. Authors do not have to be SIG-Health members to participate. Please note that the papers do not have to fit the theme, just relate to health IT in general.

The papers will not be included in conference proceedings and so authors retain all copyrights to their work. However, accepted papers will be listed with author names, affiliations, title, and brief abstract on the AIS SIG-Health website.

The workshop is restricted to 40 participants and will include presentations and roundtable discussions. All submitted work will be editorially-reviewed by the co-chairs. All accepted papers will then be presented and discussed during roundtable discussions to provide authors with help, feedback, suggestions, and to facilitate future collaborations. There will be a featured panel on well-being in the IS academy for all participants.  The interactive format of the workshop is geared towards providing a high degree of feedback to authors with promising early-stage work, but is certainly open to developed and completed research as well.
