2017 Special Topic Conference (STC) – The practice of patient centered care: Empowering and engaging patients in the digital era @ Hilton Tel Aviv
Oct 22 – Oct 23 all-day


In Memory of Assa Reichart

This conference will provide a platform for researchers, practitioners, decision makers and entrepreneurs to discuss  ways for sustainable and inclusive innovations aimed at patient’s/consumer’s uptake, engagement and empowerment.

Realizing the potential of consumers’ eHealth products (electronic tools for patients, informal caregivers and healthy consumers) in improving health care delivery and outcomes requires practitioners and designers to take account of existing diversity among users.  This diversity contributes to differential access, uptake, and benefits derived from emerging eHealth technologies.

Invited lectures, by academics and entrepreneurs, are called to chart visions on inclusive eHealth:  Design practices, interventions and implementation strategies that could benefit socially-diverse groups.

MIE 2018 @ The Swedish Exhibition & Congress Center
Apr 24 – Apr 26 all-day

MIE 2018 will take place 24th to 26th April 2018, in Gothenburg, Sweden. The Swedish Society for Medical Informatics (SFMI) will host the conference in collaboration with EFMI (European Federation for Medical Informatics). The conference will be co-located with VITALIS, the largest eHealth event in Scandinavia.  MIE2018 is the 29th Medical Informatics Europe conference and marks the 40th anniversary of the MIE conferences, since the first conference in Cambridge UK. Closing the gap between an international audience of academics, health professionals and industry partners.

We invite you to submit scientific contributions to the conference.  MIE2018 chosen focus is “Building Continents of Knowledge in Oceans of Data: the Future of Co-Created eHealth”, pointing to the broad range of topics in digitizing health care, citizens participation, professional challenges meeting health information technology, data science, population health informatics, learning health systems, connected health and changing health systems. These topics are addressed from the perspectives of citizens, patients and their families, health professionals, service providers, standards developers and policy makers alike. The organization will be much the same as for MIE 2008. It will be a co-arrangement as last time with Vitalis where the participants can select either MIE 2018 or Vitalis sessions.  We hope that MIE 2018 in Göteborg will be a great and memorable event for all of us.

We look forward to seeing you in 2018.
