This chapter evaluates the factors that influence the success of research collaborations in health informatics. It identifies four key issues in conducting interdisciplinary research from the perspective of a computing researcher in health informatics. These include an understanding of work styles and discipline culture, development of a shared lexicon and common meaning for terminology, interpretation of communication styles, and an understanding of the target population. This chapter also argues that benefits of interdisciplinary research far outweigh the challenges and associated risks.

Keywords:   research collaborations, health informatics, work styles, discipline culture, shared lexicon, communication styles, interdisciplinary research
