Nowadays, Information and Communication Systems Technologies are rapidly
expanding in order to fulfill the increased needs of our demanding modern
Information Society. More and more fundings are invested every year for the
development of new, innovative and technologically advanced Information Systems
that will be efficient enough to satisfy users’ requirements and be adaptive enough so
as to cooperate with the cutting‐edge aspects of IT and mobile technologies.

Other peculiarities of the sites are
that the systems are updated frequently, that advertising is not a source for funding and that the
Publication of personal information is dependent from a personal written agreement, for example, for
the member list of AIG. The principles of the Health-On-the-Net-Foundation (HON) are implemented
by both websites.
Electrical Design manual for hospitals includes general requirement; raceways, wiring and equipment; receptacle and power requirements; essential and standby electrical power systems; electrical power distribution; lighting; telecommunications systems; information technology rooms requirements; specal medical and alarm systems.
After a successful MEDINFO in 1992, the Swiss Society for Medical Informatics hosts
again a major event in medical informatics – the 19
Medical Informatics Europe Conference,
under the generic name of MIE2005. The host city, Geneva, is well known for its
commitment in international healthcare, being the residence of several international organisations,
including WHO. Geneva is also synonym with other major medical informatics
achievements: the DIOGENE hospital information system and Natural Language Processing,
both strongly connected to Geneva and its University Hospital...
One of the challenges of being a clerkship director of internal medicine is that
there is no perfect textbook for one’s course. More comprehensive textbooks
often have all the information a student should have for their patient care
needs, but the volume of information in these comprehensive textbooks is far
too much for a student to read (much less reread, and study) in the few weeks
of a medicine clerkship.
Infections. During infancy, a number of viruses have been
associated with the inception of the asthmatic phenotype.
Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) and parainfluenza virus
produce a pattern of symptoms including bronchiolitis that
parallel many features of childhood asthma53,54. A number
of long-term prospective studies of children admitted to the
hospital with documented RSV have shown that
approximately 40% will continue to wheeze or have
asthma into later childhood53.
This demo presents Information Extraction from discharge letters in Bulgarian language. The Patient history section is automatically split into episodes (clauses between two temporal markers); then drugs, diagnoses and conditions are recognised within the episodes with accuracy higher than 90%. The temporal markers, which refer to absolute or relative moments of time, are identiﬁed with precision 87% and recall 68%. The direction of time for the episode starting point: backwards or forward (with respect to certain moment orienting the episode) is recognised with precision 74.4%. ...
Healthcare and healthcare delivery are currently undergoing major changes worldwide as they are increasingly
being transformed through the application of technology. Over the past several decades a wide
variety of information technologies have been deployed within an ever increasing variety of healthcare
settings (ranging from clinical to hospital, community and home settings) in an effort to streamline and
modernize healthcare delivery.
In almost all Western countries, health care is in a state of radical transformation.
How can we meet the needs and demands of increasingly empowered
‘consumers’, contain costs, incorporate ‘evidence based’ modes of working, and
re-motivate health care professionals—and all at the same time? The health care
systems in Western countries are usually compared and contrasted along their
axes of difference: nationalized versus fully market-driven; tax-based versus
insurance-based financing; ‘gatekeeping’ general practitioners versus self-referral
to hospital care....
The book is designed to give students both a conceptual understanding and
a practical use of internal accounting information. The structure and sequence
of topics in the book were carefully planned to serve as a basis for developing
The most established nationwide medical registry in Germany is the Perinatal Registry, which collects
maternal health records concerning pregnancy, delivery and perinatal outcome from now more than
1100 hospitals. Over the past 16 years, data collection was transformed from printed questionnaires to
digital records. A special web-based information source of the German Perinatal Registry does not
Current Medical Diagnosis & Treatment 2007 is the 46th annual volume of this single-source
reference for practitioners in both hospital and ambulatory settings. It emphasizes the practical
features of clinical diagnosis and patient management in all fields of internal medicine and in
specialties of interest to primary care practitioners and subspecialists who provide generalist care.
This series constitutes a collection of selected papers presented at the International
Conference on Medical Imaging and Informatics (MIMI2007), held during August
14–16, in Beijing, China. The conference, the second of its kind, was funded by the
European Commission (EC) under the Asia IT&C programme and was co-organized
by Middlesex University, UK and Capital University of Medical Sciences, China.
The aim of the conference was to initiate links between Asia and Europe and to
exchange research results and ideas in the field of medical imaging.
We have mainly regarded elderly people’s use of information technology in their daily lives
as ICT training of elderly people. We have also discussed the possibilities and limitations
that technology raises for information, activity and for better contact with others.
The use of ICT in nursing and care of elderly people mainly implies in this connection the use
of smart-home technology in houses for old people and people with dementia. This
technology involves the use of integrated ICT components.
Stroke is a vascular disease for which mortality and morbidity are relatively
well-documented because most stroke victims are admitted to hospitals. Trends in
stroke mortality, incidence, and prevalence are somewhat similar to those for other
cardiovascular conditions. Stroke mortality has been decreasing since the 1960s,
but without a consistent decrease in stroke incidence. Stroke incidence has even
been reported to have been higher in the 1980s than during the 1970s, and there
was no sustained decline in incidence during the 1990s....
The eighth edition of Dentistry for the Child and
Adolescent presents current diagnostic and treatment
recommendations based on research, clinical experience,
and current literature. This newest edition follows
the same basic structure and format of the previous
seven editions. The contributors who joined us in
preparation of this latest revision express a coordinated
philosophy in the approach to the most modern
concepts of dentistry for the child and adolescent. The
information contained herein is relevant to the contemporary
science and practice of pediatric dentistry.
The arrows that point from the box labeled “Information distilled, interpreted, excerpted” indicate where
this processing occurs. So for instance, scientists and committees process information before handing
it on to policy advisors, and policy advisors do the same before handing information on to policy makers.
And at the end of the chain, complex scientific information often gets boiled down to just a few pages
and messages that reach the desks of the policy makers themselves.
