Working Group Medical Informatics and eHealth of the Austrian Computer Society (OCG) and the Austrian Society for Biomedical Engineering (ÖGBMT)
Computers and information systems have become very important for medicine and for the health sciences. At the beginning of the 21st Century, information technology, computer science, knowledge management and communication engineering are of increasing importance as interfaces between patients, health professionals and health organisations. Improved medical technology has helped doctors to raise the level of health care. Advanced communication technology enables modern telemedicine applications. Biomedical Informatics becomes more and more relevant because of the huge synergies between medical informatics and bioinformatics.

The Austrian working group for Medical Informatics aims at bringing together informaticians and engineers together with clinicians and with other health professionals for further enhancement of the health services. The working group is part of the Austrian Society of Biomedical Engineering (ÖGBMT) and of the Austrian Computer Society (OCG).
