Studies in Health Technology and Informatics 2014, 202: i-xiv
The current volume presents the papers of the ICIMTH (International Conference on Informatics, Management, and Technology in Healthcare). The Organising Committee and the Scientific Programme Committee would like to present to the academic community the scientific outcomes of the ICIMTH 2014 Conference, which is being held from 10 to 13 July, 2014 in Athens, Greece. The ICIMTH 2014 Conference is the 12th Annual Conference in this series of scientific events, gathering scientists from all continents as well as from the hosting country in the field of Biomedical and Health Informatics. The Conference has a major focus on the integration of the applications of Biomedical Informatics from Clinical Informatics, Health Informatics to Public Health Informatics as well as on ICT applications in the Healthcare domain. Considering that Management and Organisational Issues play an important role in the implementation phase of Biomedical Informatics applications, topics related to the above themes are also included as an integral part to the overall theme of the Conference. We are treating the field of Biomedical Informatics in a very broad framework examining the research and applications outcomes of Informatics from cell to populations, including a number of Technologies such as Imaging, Sensors, and Biomedical Equipment and Management and Organisational subjects, such as such as legal and social issues and setting research priorities in Health Informatics. However, in this volume we have incorporated only the papers and posters accepted for presentation, whereas all other scientific events within the Conference are incorporated within the local electronic version of the proceedings. It should be noted that the Proceedings are published for the first time in this series of the Conference as an e-book for ease of use and browsing without losing any of the advantages of indexing and citation in the biggest Scientific Literature Databases, such as Medline and Scopus that this Series, Studies in Health Technology and Informatics (SHTI) of IOS Press, provides. At the end of the deadline we have gathered 125 submissions, from which after reviewing we have accepted 79 as full papers and 12 poster presentations to be included in the volume proceedings, as well as 2 workshops and 3 tutorials. It goes without saying that the compilation of the proceedings is a huge task and this effort could not have been done without the dedication, accuracy, persistence, and tiresome contribution of our two Assistant Editors, mainly performed by Miss Katia Kolokathi but also with the work of Mr. Parisis Gallos both members of the research staff of the Health Informatics Laboratory of the University of Athens. The Organising Committee working along with the Scientific Programme Committee is dedicated to organise a successful scientific event and will arrange also to have an excellent stay for you and your fellows in Athens. Athens, 15 06 2014 The Editors John Mantas, Mowafa S. Househ, Arie Hasman.
