One day health informatics course at City University

The Centre for Health Informatics at City University is putting on a one day short course entitled: IMPACT OF EMERGING AND DISRUPTIVE TECHNOLOGY IN HEALTHCARE DELIVERY.

It will be held on Wednesday, 31 October 2007

The programme includes:

Emerging Trends for Single Record Systems - Prof Denis Protti Is a comprehensive single unified record, shared by all clinicians, a reality for the NHS? The experiences of other jurisdictions such as Spain, the USA, Hong Kong and Italy will be presented.

Using Everyday Technologies in Healthcare - Prof Jonathan Kay Technologies such as email, web browsing, barcodes and mobile phones have revolutionised the commercial, social and entertainment domains.
However their uptake in healthcare has been slow and patchy. The reasons for this need to be understood and the barriers overcome if they are to bring the same benefits to healthcare that they have delivered to everyday life.

Emerging Technologies for Emerging Markets - Dr Peter Drury Emerging technologies for Emerging Markets - is there a framework that can help decide what is needed where?

Is a Common User Interface a dream or a possibility? - Dr Mike Bainbridge Will the NHS clinician someday access a clinical work station which has the same look and feel regardless of where the clinician is practicing?
These and related questions will be explored.
