"Health and medical informatics have grown out of the growing practice of applying the possibilities of information technologies to the field of healthcare. Mantas (Laboratory of Health Informatics, U. of Athens, Greece) presents 35 contributions, drawn from the Third European Conference on Health Telematics Education (1998), that cover both the implementation of informatics courses in certain countries, as well as certain applications and experiences. The contributions are organized into sections discussing health and medical informatics curriculum development; health and nursing informatics curriculum; health informatics training of healthcare professionals; simulation technologies; telematics technologies in education; knowledge-based approaches in education; and administrative and financial issues of implementation experiences. Also included are three keynote addresses."--Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (

Genre: Medical

In this publication leading experts present achievements and actual experiences in Medical Informatics by demonstrating experiences from various countries, using different technologies and approaches. The aim is to enhance contacts between physicians, hospital management and administrators, as well as IT and IS managers and consultants. Besides, colleagues from the new countries present examples on how they tackle the challenge of achieving modern health care, introducing the electronic patient record and interoperable hospital information systems. Many of the papers are dealing with solutions for secondary and tertiary care, and how far the different levels of care have to be and can be interlinked. Therefore, EPR and communication are major topics.

Ethical Legal and Social Issues in Medical Informatics

Author: Duquenoy, Penny
