New name for “Informatics in Primary Care”; latest issue published

After 20 years as “Informatics in Primary Care”, the BCS Health’s house journal has been renamed “Journal of Innovation in Health Informatics”.

In a media release, BCS writes:

Informatics is an innovative science, and informaticians need to innovate across professional and discipline boundaries. The title was carefully selected to reflect that

(1) informatics provides the opportunity to innovate rather than simply automates;

(2) implementing informatics solutions often results in unintended consequences, and many implementations fail and benefits and innovations may go unrecognised;

(3) health informatics is a boundary spanning discipline and is by its very nature likely to give rise to innovation.

Professor Simon de Lusignan, University of Surrey, Guildford, United Kingdom remains the Editor-in-Chief (see http://hijournal.bcs.org/index.php/jhi/about/editorialTeam for full information). Simon explains the changes in an Editorial at http://hijournal.bcs.org/index.php/jhi/article/view/152
