(Meta)modelling for Healthcare Systems
Rising costs, ageing populations and increased expectations are making the current healthcare systems in the developed world unsustainable. Information technology has the potential to support healthcare but its application has not nearly reached its full potential. Barriers include the distributed nature of the services and local variations in policies; continuous changes due to updates in rules and guidelines; the complexity of the information; and the plethora of requirements placed on the systems by a network of stakeholders. Model-Driven Software Engineering (MDSE) is an emerging and promising methodology for software systems, targeting challenges in software engineering relating to productivity, flexibility and reliability. MDSE is especially useful as a methodology for the development of healthcare systems having the above mentioned barriers in mind. Modelling and metamodelling is fundamental for MDSE techniques, especially when new tools and modelling languages are created for the domain-experts.
To address these issues the 2nd International Workshop on (Meta)modelling for Healthcare Systems (MMHS) will be held 27-30 September 2015 in Berlin, Germany. The workshop is colocated with the 5th International Conference on Current and Future Trends of Information and Communication Technologies in Healthcare (ICTH 2015).
Many thanks to all participants and contributors of the worskshop in 2014! Information about the 2014 version can be found at MMHS 2014 websites.
