Context Sensitive Health Informatics


Context Sensitive Health Informatics (CSHI) 2023 is the pre-conference to MedInfo2023, the world congress on medical and health informatics. CSHI focuses on Human and Socio-technical approaches to health technology and healthcare delivery, and so attracts a large number of human factors and organisational researchers, those who work at the intersection of technology, humans and health systems. 

The CSHI conference is co-organized every two years by The International Medical Informatics Association (IMIA) and a local partner. In 2023, the University of Sydney will act as the local partner. The event will be held over 2 days, on the 5-6 July. 

Location for CSHI 2023

This year, CSHI will be held at the Charles Perkins Centre (CPC) Auditorium at The University of Sydney. 

Building, D17 John Hopkins Dr, Camperdown NSW 2037

A Call for Speakers & Posters

COVID-19 has accelerated health technology development and implementation. How can we ensure that we capitalise on this momentum? What are the risks and challenges and how can we overcome these?

We welcome submissions that focus on the theme, or socio-technical systems more broadly.

Accepted papers will be published in a web-only, full open access IOS Press series of 'Studies in Health Technology and Informatics' and indexed in PubMed. Head over here for more information. Poster abstracts will also be published in the IOS Press series.

History of CSHI

The CSHI conference is co-organized every two years by the Human Factors Engineering - HFE and Organizational and Social Issues - OSI working groups of the International Medical Informatics Association - IMIA

CSHI is the result of the merger between the sociotechnical conferences that were started in conjunction with Medinfo and ICT in Health Care (ITHC). 

With support from Aalborg University, the first merged conference was held in 2010 in Aalborg. Below are some images of the journey:
