In this article, we define the electronic healthcare record and present its purpose as a tool for continuity of care. We briefly describe the current situation of usage and focus on the major challenges to wide implementation in Europe and beyond. Finally, we point out trends that show stronger involvement of the patients-citizens in the health care(More)
In this paper, we review the results of BIOINFOMED, a study funded by the European Commission (EC) with the purpose to analyse the different issues and challenges in the area where Medical Informatics and Bioinformatics meet. Traditionally, Medical Informatics has been focused on the intersection between computer science and clinical medicine, whereas(More)
We wish to acknowledge the European Commission and FORTH-ICS for sponsoring the second meeting of the International Scientific Forum (ISF) " Towards an Information Society for All " in Crete, Greece (June 15-16, 1998). The present document elaborates on the proposed R&D agenda by identifying Human Computer Interaction (HCI) challenges and clusters of(More)
It is now 20 years that the European Union supports research and development of information and communication technologies based tools for healthcare (eHealth). From 1989 till today, funding has continually been increased, initiating new research, complementing Member State initiatives, strengthening European industrial competitiveness, and tackling new(More)
Over the past decade there have been several attempts to rethink the basic strategies and scope of medical informatics. Meanwhile, bioinformatics has only recently experienced a similar debate about its scientific character. Both disciplines envision the development of novel diagnostic, therapeutic, and management tools, and products for patient care. A(More)

Over the last decade information and communication technologies--telematics technologies--have demonstrated their potential to improve the quality, access and efficiency of health care. Health telematics applications are presently revolutionizing the developments not only in diagnosis, treatment, surveillance and rehabilitation of patients, but also on the(More)
X-ray CT scanners provide images of transverse cross sections of the human body from a large number of projections. During the data acquisition process, which usually takes about 1 s, motion effects such as respiration, cardiac motion, and patient restlessness produce artifacts that appear as blurring, doubling, and distortion in the reconstructed images,(More)
