Spanish Society of Health Informatics
The Spanish Society of Health Informatics is a non-profit scientific society, built up in 1976 and today having more than six hundred professionals, technicians or health scientists with interest in the promotion of the use of Information and Communication Technologies in the health sector. In this way it arises as a common debate forum for the professionals of medicine, informatics, pharmacy, nursery, biology, and all the other Health Sciences, as well as for the students of any related career.

Among the multiple activities and projects developed by the society in the recent years, the annual National Congress on Health Informatics is pre-eminent. In addition to this general congress (INFORSALUD), the society organises more specific congresses targeted to professional sectors (Pharmacy and Informatics, Medical Informatics, Nursery and Informatics, or technological aspects (interoperability, health data protection, governance, telemedicine …).

SEIS periodically publishes technical reports on several aspects related to applications of IT in Healthcare and a bimonthly journal (I+S) (Informatica y Salud).
