The purpose of the International Conference on Health Informatics is to bring together researchers and practitioners interested in the application of information and communication technologies (ICT) to healthcare and medicine in general and to the support of persons with special needs in particular.
Databases, networking, graphical interfaces, data mining, machine learning, intelligent decision support systems and specialized programming languages are just a few of the technologies and research areas currently contributing to medical informatics. Mobility and ubiquity in healthcare systems, physiological and behavioral modeling, standardization of technologies and procedures, certification, privacy and security are some of the issues that medical informatics professionals and the ICT industry and research community in general are addressing in order to further promote ICT in healthcare. In the case of medical rehabilitation and assistive technology, research in and applications of ICT have contributed greatly to the enhancement of quality of life and full integration of all citizens into society.
