Seminar Organizing Committee

Topics for the Healthcare and Life Sciences Seminar 2007
While submissions can address any topic in health informatics, a main focus of this seminar is on decision support in the semantic interoperability era. National and regional efforts are undertaken around the globe to share clinical information in a patient-centric way and have a longitudinal and cross-institutional view of the health history of the patient at the point of care. The challenge is how decision support applications can utilize the abundance of information available through such sharing efforts and facilitate the actual use of it by clinicians and possibly by patients as well. This requires among other things to ensure that longitudinal health records can provide clinical information of a suitable data quality, consistency and completeness to underpin safe decision support.

Please feel free to further distribute this invitation to students and fellow researchers/developers.
