Academic Exchange Quarterly issues Call for Health Telematics and Telemedicine Papers

Minneapolis 02 January 2002The Fall 2002 issue of the peer-reviewed journal Academic Exchange Quarterly (AEQ) will be devoted to education in the fields of Health Informatics and Telemedicine. Editor and Director of the Ph.D. Programme in Health Services at Walden University, William H. Wiist, invites experts in the field who are teaching health informatics, telemedicine, medical informatics, public health informatics, nursing informatics, biomedical informatics, or health information management to submit a manuscript before the deadline of July 1, 2002.


Advances in communications technology have increased the ability of health professionals and health care institutions and public health agencies to rapidly retrieve, analyse, use, and exchange large amounts of a variety of types of health information including patient records, diagnostic images, and population databases.

Technology has also provided additional means of communicating health information to patients and the public. The organisation, storage, transmission, display and use of health care data in decision making requires knowledge and skills taught in the fields of informatics and telemedicine.

Part two of Academic Exchange Quarterly's Fall 2002 issue focuses on unique and creative solutions to instructional issues which arise when teaching in the frontier of the fields of health informatics and telemedicine.

Manuscripts are sought which deal with topics such as, but not limited to those raised by the following questions:

  • What unique, creative instructional methods, programmes, or curriculum are being used in clinical, lab or classroom settings to teach informatics and telemedicine to health care professionals?
  • How are the policy and ethical issues raised by health informatics and telemedicine being taught?
  • How do financial constraints affect the instructional process?

Manuscripts are also sought which describe quantitative or qualitative evaluations of informatics and telemedicine instructional programmes.

More information is available on the announcement page for the Fall 2002 issue of Academic Exchange Quarterly. The instructions for submitting manuscripts can be found at AEQ's Submission Procedure page.
