Description

Special Session on GIS in Healthcare - HGIS 2019 (ins)


3 - 5 May, 2019 - Heraklion, Crete, Greece

Within the 5th International Conference on Geographical Information Systems Theory, Applications and Management - GISTAM 2019


SCOPE

The need to provide better, personal health information and care at lower costs is opening the way to a number of digital solutions and applications designed and developed specifically for the healthcare. Various open-data initiatives are also making available an enourmous amount of diverse data that needs to be processed and, above all, understood. Under the Digital Health umbrella we find smartphone-based personal health applications, big data reduction and analysis tools, AI-based systems and health information support tools for professional and the industry. The aim of these applications is to help manage cronic conditions or improve ones lifestyle; provide doctors, hospitals and health-services with better, more efficient tools; improve policy makers decision making through the support of data analytics tools. GIS has always provided tools to better understand and contextualize data, this Special session on GIS and Healthcare will show how GIS techniques can be applied to the most common healthcare problems but also explore new areas where GIS can foster healthcare innovation.


The main topics include but are not limited to:

- GIS for disease control and forecast

- GIS for health resources optimization

- GIS for heralth emergency support systems

- Spatial analysis and data mining for healthcare data

- Big data analytics in healthcare

- Digital mapping and epidemiology

Italy

Brief Bio
Roberto Lattuada holds a PhD in GIS and 3D modelling from the University of London and a Master in Computer Science from the University of Milan.
He has more than 15 years of experience in the IT and Mobile industry having worked with companies such as Oracle (US), Vodafone (Italy), Motorola (UK) and T-Mobile International.
With a strong experience in strategy and innovation Roberto Lattuada has launched a number of innovative products and services across several industries: he has helped develop the Oracle Spatial suite and he was responsible for the first product supporting geo-imaging within Oracle Spatial, while at Vodafone he was in charge of the first mobile payment solution and at T-Mobile he launched the G1, the first Android-based handset.
He is currently CEO of myHealthbox, a company specialized in digital solutions for the healthcare.


SCOPE

The International Conference on Geographical Information Systems Theory, Applications and Management aims at creating a meeting point of researchers and practitioners that address new challenges in geo-spatial data sensing, observation, representation, processing, visualization, sharing and managing, in all aspects concerning both information communication and technologies (ICT) as well as management information systems and knowledge-based systems. The conference welcomes original papers of either practical or theoretical nature, presenting research or applications, of specialized or interdisciplinary nature, addressing any aspect of geographic information systems and technologies.
