Call for Papers - Minitrack Data Platforms and Ecosystems in Healthcare @HICSS2023

The past two years of the COVID-19 pandemic have painstakingly highlighted the demand for efficient healthcare systems in which relevant health data are readily accessible wherever needed, whenever needed. The amount of sensitive and personal health data collected every day by a variety of mobile and medical devices (e.g., smartphones, wearables, implants) fosters the emergence of large data repositories and platforms at scale (Sunyaev et al., 2015). However, it is essential to integrate and make this data accessible, such as through multisite health data sharing, so that it can be used to inform and impact care coordination, data-driven care research, and population health (Oborn & Barrett, 2016; Scheibner et al., 2021). In this context, healthcare systems frequently struggle to realize nation-wide information infrastructures (cf. Aanestad & Jensen, 2011) and make data accessible to those healthcare stakeholders who can act upon the knowledge generated from it (Oborn & Barrett, 2016). Beyond technological interoperability barriers, there are challenges on the individual, organizational, and societal level (Witte et al., 2020), such as the unwillingness to share health data openly due to fears of surveillance or misuse by third parties (Thiebes et al., 2017). In this context, it is critical to design health data sharing in a way that simultaneously preserves individual privacy and data utility (Scheibner et al., 2021), and to quickly find appropriate policies to do so while leveraging the benefits of digitization (Anderson & Agarwal, 2011).

This minitrack invites papers on the emergence, design, and evolution of health data ecosystems, generally defined as multi-stakeholder networks that enable value creation via platforms allowing various types of health data to be stored, shared, and reused (Oliveira et al., 2019) in a secure, privacy-preserving, and FAIR manner (Wilkinson et al., 2016). We welcome qualitative and quantitative contributions that shed light on the critical role of data and individual privacy preservation in and through healthcare platforms and ecosystems. In this context, we specifically encourage submissions that strongly emphasize practical applicability within the healthcare environment.

    Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

    • Data sharing and data donation in healthcare
    • (Open) health data repositories
    • Health data spaces and initiatives for data lofts, communities, and collectives
    • Data-driven value creation in healthcare ecosystems
    • Cases on the emergence, design, and evolution of (open) data platforms in healthcare
    • Design principles for privacy-preserving data platforms in healthcare
    • Use of health data platforms for data-driven care research and artificial intelligence
    • Openness and governance of biomedical data


    Deadline for submission is June 15, 2022.
