Informatics, Management and Technology in Healthcare
Biomedical informatics is becoming increasingly important as healthcare organizations worldwide implement biomedical informatics applications as part of their continued effort to improve the effectiveness of patient care and the efficiency of service delivery.
This book presents the full papers delivered at the 2013 International Conference on Informatics, Management and Technology in Healthcare (ICIMTH 2013), held in Athens, Greece, in July 2013.
The scope of biomedical informatics is very broad, including a number of technologies such as imaging, sensors, biomedical equipment and even organ transplant technology. The 90 papers included here examine research and applications outcomes - from cell to population - in these diverse fields, and because management and organizational issues play an important role in the implementation phase of biomedical informatics applications, these topics are also covered as an integral part of the theme.
The book will be of interest to all those whose work involves the development and use of biomedical informatics applications.
