This volume contains the proceedings of the seventh annual Event of the International Council on Medical and Care Compunetics (ICMCC), which will be held in London, UK, from 8-11 June 2010. ICMCC is an international foundation which acts as the knowledge centre for medical and care compunetics, i.e. for the field of social, societal and ethical implications of computing and networking in health. Contrary to conferences addressing technology, dedicated scientific domains or specialized professionals, ICMCC follows a multidisciplinary approach by nature. Therefore, it is addressing all entities involved in health issues such as health professionals, politicians, supporting specialist, administrators, researchers and developers, but first of all the subject of care – the patient or the citizens before becoming a patient. In this bridging and embracing functionality, ICMCC is unique in the global scene.
The theme of the 2010 annual event is “Personal Health – Intelligent solutions to serve empowered patients”. The seventh ICMCC annual event addresses the active participation of the citizen in his or her health and care pathway with the interactive use of Information and Communication Technologies, or in other words Patient 2.0 Empowerment as defined by ICMCC in 2008. The 2010 Event intents to combine ontology-driven health information system design for advanced interoperability with the paradigm change towards pervasive person-centric care including prevention, home care and wellness, together forming adaptive distributed health information systems solutions. Important issues to be considered are virtual Electronic Health Records and Personal Health Records acting as semantically interoperable communication and cooperation platform for personalized ubiquitous health services in a trustworthy environment.
The scientific topics presented in the proceedings comprise System Design and Evaluation, Computer-Assisted Learning, Knowledge Representation and Ontologies, Electronic Health Records and Patient Empowerment. 81 researchers, residing in 17 different countries from Europe, North and South America, and Asia, have reported their results in this volume (double author entries have not been eliminated). A comprehensive overview and in-depth, first hand information on new developments, advanced systems, technologies and applications will be introduced to an international audience.
The ICMCC has been supported by the European Federation for Medical Informatics (EFMI), notably by the EFMI Working Groups “Electronic Health Records”, “Security, Safety and Ethics” and “Personal Portable Devices”.
The editors would like to thank the scientific board for their assistance, all the authors for their excellent work as well as the reviewers for lending their expertise to the conference, and last but not least the local organizers, thereby contributing to the final achievements.
