Notification to presenters: Mid-July 2015

Advances in healthcare technology show great potential to improve the
delivery and stem the rising costs of healthcare. However, the rapid
development and hasty adoption of new technologies, combined with a
complicated regulatory environment, has resulted in a landscape
replete with interoperability, safety, and security problems.

HealthTech, formerly HealthSec, is now in its third year with a
broader scope designed to encourage the development of new
technologies that generally improve the quality and safety of
healthcare as well as the access to it. By bringing together
researchers, practitioners, and industrial partners, HealthTech aims
to provide a forum for cross-disciplinary interactions among the
technology, medicine, and policy communities.

The format of HealthTech Summit has evolved as the organizers seek to
serve the healthcare IT technical community. This year, rather than
soliciting paper submissions, the program committee will put together
a series of invited talks and panels, leveraging the advantages of the
Washington, D.C. venue to bring in stakeholders from government as
well as industry and academia.

HealthTech will also feature a poster session as a way for researchers
and practitioners to share recent advances at the intersection of
healthcare and technology. The HealthTech '15 Program Committee
invites poster abstracts no more than 500 words describing ongoing or
recent work that shows potential to stimulate or catalyze further
research and explores new directions - surprising results and
thought-provoking ideas will be strongly favored. There will be no


Poster presentations are solicited in all areas relating to healthcare
information technology, including:

- Access control and consent management systems
- Techniques for analyzing and securing audit logs
- Architectures for large-scale health information systems,
  interoperability, and health information exchange
- Medical devices and body area networks
- Home and assisted-living monitoring systems
- Threat models: formal descriptions and analysis
- Privacy-enhancing technologies such as de-identification and
  differential privacy for electronic health records generally or
  specific types of data such as images or genomic data
- Usability and human factors
- Regulatory and policy issues
- Authentication and identification techniques
- Cryptographic protocols
- Dependable and trustworthy computing for healthcare
- Telemedicine and mobile health technologies
- Practical applications and experiences with HIT; lessons learned 
  and best practices

Submission Guidelines
Poster abstracts should be submitted as a 1-page PDF document
containing: a) the title; b) authors and affiliations; c) keywords
signaling the topic area; and d) an abstract of no more than 500
words. The abstract should establish its relevance to the healthcare
information community.

Proposals should be submitted electronically by Wednesday, June 17,
2015 at 1:00 pm EDT at the following link:
