The purpose of workshops is to provide a more interactive and focused platform for presenting and discussing new and emerging ideas. The format of paper presentations may include oral presentations, poster presentations, keynote lectures and panels. Depending on the number of presentations, workshops can be scheduled for 1 day or 2 days. All accepted papers will be published in a special section of the conference proceedings book, under an ISBN reference, and on digital support. All papers presented at the conference venue will be available at the SCITEPRESS Digital Library. SCITEPRESS is a member of CrossRef and every paper is given a DOI (Digital Object Identifier). The proceedings are submitted for indexation by SCOPUS, Google Scholar, DBLP, Semantic Scholar, Microsoft Academic, EI and Web of Science / Conference Proceedings Citation Index.

Healthcare delivery undergoes a rapid change from traditional processes towards the use of digital health interventions and personalized medicine. On the one side, hospitals and health care providers introduce hospital information systems, electronic health records and telemedicine solutions for more efficient workflows within and beyond institutions. On the other side, patients may choose between a wide range of digital health applications provided by wearables and mobile phone applications supporting their self-management, health and well-being.

However, the question of how sustainable digital health implementation and diffusion can be successfully reached is not sufficiently solved yet. Our workshop seeks for submissions dealing with this question and especially the diffusion and adoption of digital health innovations. We also invite digital health innovations on an early stage of research that are challenging the scaling-up issue. We welcome research and theory papers as well as case studies and best practice examples. A particular focus is given on finding measures to ensure the actual implementation of innovative solutions. The workshop includes paper presentations, invited talks and open workshop parts for discussing innovative topics.
