E-Health

Proceedings of Med-e-Tel 2006

The International Trade Event and Conference for eHealth, Telemedicine and Health ICT

Over the past decades, evolution in medical technologies and research, cultural, social and demographic changes, and globalization have confronted healthcare systems with new situations and subsequently require new solutions. The ultimate goal becomes that of delivering the best possible health service for anyone, at any time, from anywhere.

The dramatic increase of interest and application of eHealth/telemedicine during the past twenty years resulted in investments of billions. Nowadays, the integration of eHealth into the everyday life of medical staff and patients is a reality in developing as well as developed countries.

Med-e-Tel (The International Trade Event and Conference for eHealth, Telemedicine and Health ICT) focuses on the convergence of information and communication technology with medical applications, which lead to a higher quality of care, cost reductions, workflow efficiency, and widespread availability of healthcare services.

The Med-e-Tel 2006 was held at Luxexpo, Luxembourg, Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, 5-7 April 2006. International organizations like WHO, ESA, ITU, UNOOSA and EC were just some of the major players that took part in the event.

This Proceeding is one example of our work together with many partners from all over the world. There were over 100 presentations from more than 55 countries. The access to the content is free of charge at
