Med-e-Tel 2007

Proceedings of The International Educational and Networking Forum 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.

Papers provided in these Proceedings were compiled for and presented at the Med-e-Tel 2007. The event was held at Luxexpo, Luxembourg, Grand Duchy of Luxembourg 18-20 April 2007. The access to the content is free of charge at
