   The Seventh International Workshop on Data Management and Analytics 
                    for Medicine and Healthcare (DMAH 2021)     
                   In Conjunction with VLDB 2021
                Copenhagen, Denmark - virtual event
		         August 20, 2021
DMAH will be held online this year.

Healthcare enterprises are producing large amounts of data through electronic
medical records, medical imaging, health insurance claims, surveillance, and 
others. Such data have high potential to transform current healthcare to 
improve healthcare quality and prevent diseases, and advance biomedical 
research. Medical Informatics is an interdisciplinary field that studies 
and pursues the effective use of medical data, information, and knowledge 
for scientific inquiry, problem solving and decision making, driven by efforts
to improve human health and well being.

The goal of the workshop is to bring people in the field cross-cutting 
information management and medical informatics to discuss innovative data 
management and analytics technologies highlighting end-to-end applications, 
systems, and methods to address problems in healthcare, public health, and 
everyday wellness, with clinical, physiological, imaging, behavioral, 
environmental, and omic- data, and data from social media and the Web. It 
will provide a unique opportunity for interaction between information 
management researchers and biomedical researchers for the interdisciplinary

This workshop welcomes papers that address fundamental research issues 
for complex medical data environments, data management and analytical 
methods, systems and applications. 

Topics of interest include, but not limited to:

Big data management for medical data; 
Blockchain for healthcare;         
Biomedical data integration;
Biomedical knowledge management and decision support;
Semantics and interoperability for healthcare data;
Clinical natural language processing and text mining;
Predictive modeling for diagnosis and treatment;
Visual analytics for medical data;
