6th Nordic Conference on eHealth and Telemedicine

6th Nordic Conference August 31 - September 1, 2006
Helsinki, Finland

The very first Nordic Conference on Telemedicine took place in Finland in 1996 at the time when telemedicine was an emerging discipline. Since then, the conference has rotated biannually in all the Nordic Countries, which have been the early pioneers in healthcare ICT development. The event has also given a basis for the Nordic Telemedicine Association, which was founded to foster co-operation in the field of telehealth as a federation of national organisations.

The Finnish Society of Telemedicine is representing Finland in the Nordic Telemedicine Association and has since 1995 organised the national conferences in the telehealth domain. The multi-professional organisation is an active forum of discussion and educational activities.

The Centre of Excellence for Information and Communication Technology is part of Stakes, the National Research and Development Centre for Welfare and Health. It has a major expert role in developing the national requirements for healthcare info-highways and interoperable medical records. For over a decade, the centre has been an active partner in European health informatics and eHealth projects, and in international standardisation initiatives.
