About the BHI Technical Community

The mission of BHI-TC is to facilitate and grow the large community of Biomedical and Health Informatics (BHI) to accelerate the translation of current research and development in areas of BHI such as Artificial Intelligence for Big Biomedical Data, Computational Modeling, Human-Computer Interaction for Preventative, Predictive, Personalized, Patient-centric, Participatory, and Precise health (pHealth).  As a sub-discipline of Data Science and Biomedical Engineering emphasizing Biomedicine and Health, the ultimate goal of the BHI-TC is to make significant societal impact on improving healthcare and patient outcome.  The current composition of BHI-TC members consists of experts in application areas such as Translational Bioinformatics, Medical Imaging Informatics, Clinical Informatics, Public Health Informatics, Sensor Informatics, Behavioral Informatics, Mental Health Informatics, Rehabilitation Informatics, Systems Biology, and Systems Medicine, etc. The mission of the BHI-TC not only includes sharing insights on state-of-art data science and engineering advancement for Biomedicine and Health, but will also to promote education for the next generation data scientist, biomedical engineers and clinical practitioners.  


Journal of Biomedical and Health Informatics (JBHI)

IEEE Journal of Biomedical and Health Informatics (J-BHI) publishes original papers describing recent advances in the field of biomedical and health informatics where information and communication technologies intersect with health, healthcare, life sciences and biomedicine. Papers must contain original content in theoretical analysis, methods, technical development, and/or novel clinical applications of information systems.  Retitled from the IEEE Transactions on Information Technology in Biomedicine (TITB) in 2013, the J-BHI is one of the leading journals in computer science and information systems with a strong interdisciplinary focus and biomedical and health application emphasis. Topics covered by J-BHI include, but are not limited to: acquisition, transmission, storage, retrieval, management, processing and analysis of biomedical and health information; applications of information and communication technologies to the practice of healthcare, personal well-being, preventive care and early diagnosis of diseases, and discovery of new therapies and patient specific treatment protocols; and integration of electronic medical and health records, methods of longitudinal data analysis, data mining and knowledge discovery tools.
