The 9th International Med-e-Tel
Belgium – The 3-day Med-e-Tel congress on e-Health, telemedicine and health ICT, drew over 300 international participants this April, when the organiser, International Society for Telemedicine & eHealth (ISfTeH) in Zurich, also held its annual general meeting.
The ISfTeH unites national organisations for telemedicine and eHealth, encouraging knowledge and experience exchange and promoting IT use in healthcare. The society also has good links with the WHO, International Telecommunication Union, and the EC. In all, 44 subject-specific partner organisations are associated.
The congress programme provided technical and scientific lectures, contributions from medical practice and solution-orientated presentations from the IT industry. Discussions included:
• The state of telemonitoring, telecardiology and mobile health solutions
• The stage of development of telematics in nursing
• Healthcare providers as innovation drivers for better healthcare organisation
• Telemedicine as an aid in prevention
27 exhibitors from 12 countries showed products and gave the opportunity for an intensive exchange with specialist eHealth providers.
Med-e-Tel is recommended for healthcare experts wanting to look beyond the sometimes narrow, national view on telematics and eHealth topics. Make a date: 10th Med-e-Tel -- April 2012.
