Scandinavian Conference on Health Informatics - EHiN 2019

Oslo, Norway, November 12-13, 2019


SHI 2019 is an interdisciplinary forum for researchers with the intent of bringing forward the newest research, share experiences, promote collaboration and networking between researchers and other stakeholders in the field of e-health. The target audience is researchers and people working in healthcare, health informatics, governmental leaders and decision makers. We welcome contributions from all over the world.

This year, SHI is arranged as part of EHiN 2019. EHiN is a national arena for e-health in Norway. With an audience of more than 1300 people, EHiN gathers participants from all fields of e-health. Earlier years the research track of EHiN alone has gathered around 200 participants, we hope for the same success this year.
