Welcome to the 3rd International Conference on Healthcare and Management (ICHM) in Taiwan. The first ICHM was held in 2015 with the aim to create a platform for discussing the situations, challenges, and outlooks of related issues in healthcare and management. Since then, the ICHM has annually brought up plenary speakers, scholars, and practitioners together to share their ideas and visions. In particular, with the fast growing of aging population, participants of the ICHM2015 showed their deep concerns on the long-term care, aging population, and the future of healthcare. Then in 2016, along with the explosion of big data analytics, the ICHM2016’s theme and focus were eyed on the big data analytics in healthcare and management. From the problems faced in healthcare and management in 2015 to the issues of collecting, analyzing and understanding the healthcare data in 2016, now how to effectively and efficiently manage related issues are essential. Therefore, we choose "Be smart on Healthcare and Management" as our theme for this year’s conference.
