The International Journal of Medical Banking (IJMB), Volume 4, will be published electronically concurrent with the 9th National Medical Banking Institute held in February 2011. IJMB collects thought leadership articles that inform medical banking audiences, including banks, financial systems, government, employers and others, about the technical aspects of implementing medical banking models, legal issues, including privacy and security, and visioning documents that explore how convergence of banking and healthcare is emerging to support and improve health and healthcare. IJMB is particularly interested in case studies, legal research around key issues in medical banking and privacy and innovative concepts (disruptive or creative innovation). If you are interested in contributing an article for the 2011 IJMB, please send an abstract of your article idea to Fran Perveiler by clicking the link above. Abstracts are due Oct. 29, 2010. Abstracts should not exceed 250 words, and should include a working title and list of potential authors and full contact information. Full author guidelines will be sent to you if your abstract is accepted for publication. Please note that IJMB does not publish product or company endorsements. See the 2010 edition of the IJMB.
