The purpose of the International Conference on Health Informatics is
to bring together researchers and practitioners interested in the
application of information and communication technologies (ICT) to
healthcare and medicine in general and to the support of persons with
special needs in particular.

Databases, networking, graphical interfaces, data mining, machine
learning, intelligent decision support systems and specialized
programming languages are just a few of the technologies and research
areas currently contributing to medical informatics. Mobility and
ubiquity in healthcare systems, physiological and behavioral modeling,
standardization of technologies and procedures, certification, privacy
and security are some of the issues that medical informatics
professionals and the ICT industry and research community in general
are addressing in order to further promote ICT in healthcare. In the
case of medical rehabilitation and assistive technology, research in
and applications of ICT have contributed greatly to the enhancement of
quality of life and full integration of all citizens into society.

HEALTHINF is part of BIOSTEC, the 10th International Joint Conference
on Biomedical Engineering Systems and Technologies.
