This book presents the state of the art and trends in Health Care Telematics, the valuable results of the research and development work carried out by more than 50 projects during the AIM programme 1991-94. Project information regarding the dissemination and validation of the project results is elaborated and in the annex a full list of the participants in each project including contact details can be found. The second part of the book focuses on the shift of paradigm in the Health Care sector within the Information Society. This shift is characterised by a general turn from informatics towards multimedia telematics including the Health Care Telematics. The new Telematics Application Programme under the Fourth Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development is user driven and focuses on the need for industry and users to collaborate and develop common solutions to secure validation and exploitation of the research results.
The book gives an insight into the state of the art in a world wide context and helps the reader to understand the trends in Health Telematics. The target groups for reading the book are besides experts, researchers and industry in the area as well as decision makers and potential users of Health Telematics.
