The event is organized by the Department of Health IT at the Hospital Italiano and HL7 Argentina. Participation is free, open to all and can be in person or virtual, but requires prior registration.
The 8th University Health IT Systems Congress will take place on the 4, 5 and 6 of December at the Hospital Italiano in Buenos Aires. Its objective is to share information about advances in Health IT occurring across the globe.
During this edition, the event will have noted speakers from Uruguay, Chile, Colombia and Peru, among other countries in the region.
The event will also include the opportunity to take part in working groups and a coordinated discussion with residents and specialists in the IT Department who will join the now classic HL7 Argentina round tables, panels and tracks.
The debate will address issues such as: “Informatization Experiences in Latin America (Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, Peru and Colombia)", “Financial Instruments Applicable to Health and Technology”, “Techniques for Qualitative Research in Health IT”, “The role of usability in the design of clinical information systems”, “Ubiquitous Information Systems in Healthcare: U-Health”, “Problems with adopting electronic health records” and “Interoperability and standards in Latin America”.
With the objective of promoting the empowerment of patients in healthcare services, the seminar proposes discussing access to availability and the use of clinical information.
The seminar, “Digital Citizenry: Health in Your Hands”, organized by Saydex and Viralizando, is sponsored by the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Chile.
With the objective of promoting the empowerment of healthcare patients, the event proposes discussing access to, availability and the use of clinical information by patients and professionals in Chile and other countries.
Sandra Gatica, the Assistant Director General of Saydex, said that to improve quality, it isn’t enough to be content with data that is handed over during care but that one must also evaluate how informed each patient is and whether they are taking care of their wellbeing.
The event, which seeks to propose innovative solutions to open up people’s information, is aimed at all levels involved in the provision of health services.
The event will feature e-Health experts who will speak about the latest trends and issues with ICTs in the hospital sector.
On November 28th the eighth edition of the e-Health Congress 2013 will be held under the slogan “Technologies at the service of healthcare, adapted to the real needs of patients,” at the Confortel Atrium Hotel in Madrid, Spain.
Some of the issues to be addressed will include: “Video-telemedicine Solutions”; “Transformation of the care model through ICTs”; “Transformation of healthcare systems: challenges and opportunities”; “Development of the Horus platform. Access to electronic health records from the Madrid Health Service,” among other topics.
The event is aimed at the main authorities at Hospitals and Primary Care Centers, Health Technology, Information and Documentation Centers, Offices of Innovation in Healthcare Systems, Technical Offices for the Administration and Supervision of ICT Services, Technology Suppliers to the Health Sector and Medical Insurers and Mutual Funds.
The event will be divided into four sessions to focus on the development of Telehealth systems.
The Spanish Society of Health IT (SEIS) invites interested parties to the 11th Telemedicine Forum, which will be held at the main headquarters of the Health Service of Castilla-La Mancha (SESCAM) in Toledo, Spain, on November 19th and 20th.
The forum will hold debates on development toward highly complex Telehealth systems and their interaction (integration/interoperability) and interdependence with other systems in the health environment (EHR, electronic prescriptions, appointments, identification) and other external systems (social services, education, industry, telecommunications, food, urbanism).
These issues will be addressed across different sessions. On the 19th, Session 1 will be held – in which globalized trends and approaches in e-Health will be explored – and Session 2 – which will explore aspects related to technologically based home care and the possibility of new perspectives on new constructs and rehabilitation. On the 20th, the most important projects currently being implemented by companies in Spain will be presented – Session 3 – as willthose of other organizations – Session 4.
The event will be attended by companies, academics and governmental leaders in Big Data.
In this edition the central themes will be the management of large databases, privacy and the use of information, open data and the State and predictive analysis as applied to business and the exchange of information.
Today, we are experiencing a period of unprecedented technological change, both in terms of reach and speed. While in 1995 only 16 million people in the world used the Internet, this figure reached 2.4 billion people globally by the end of 2012; no other technological innovation has expanded so fast. Furthermore, the capillary nature of the process and its characteristics have made it possible to gather and accumulate information as never before, leading some commentators to call it the era of the Petabyte. Big Data, or mass data, describes the systems that manage large sets of data (data sets). The growing trend in management of huge quantities of data is a result of the common need to include large sets of different but related data in analyses, such as business analysis, data about infectious diseases, and the fight against organized crime, among many others.
In the healthcare area, management of Big Data systems is fundamental to information management.
