ICMCC 2007 Call for Papers

ICMCCThe 4th ICMCC Event will take place in the Novotel Amsterdam (close to the WTC), June 8-10, 2007. Special hotel rates will be offered at registration (opening March 1, 2007).
The event will focus on 2 main topics
  • Electronic records and patient record access
  • Digital Homecare
Authors are encouraged to focus their contributions from a patient's perspective.

For both record access and digital homecare we would like to see an emphasis on how the patient will be informed about developments that will directly influence his life. Especially ethical subjects like how monitoring, data storage and privacy are handled. This also includes issues concerning the patient's changing responsibilities vs. the responsibilities of the clinician.

The following is a non-restrictive list:

Electronic records and patient record access:

  • Accessing generic record structures
  • Access rights handling (read, write, create, update, lock, delete; clinicians, nurses, patients)
  • Record summaries (subset, extract) versus comprehensive record structures
  • Linking to additional (health-related) information (lifestyle, wellness; linkage tokens and mechanisms
  • Relevant standards inside and outside the healthcare and welfare domain
  • Training / education and eLearning aspects (health professionals, patients, relatives)
  • Ownership (from what viewpoint?)
  • Legal and ethical aspects (e.g. 3rd party information, parential access)
  • Social aspects (especially access by (mentally-)incapacitated and (physically-)disabled persons and 3rd party access)
  • Security, safety and privacy aspects for access systems (authentication, authorisation, authenticity, integrity, accountability)
  • Benefits of permanent record access (for patients and clinicians, economic aspects, cost-benefit-relationship, impact on health, impact on treatment, impact on recovery)
  • Access systems (kiosks, internet, cards, sticks)
  • Storage and storage system access (central, de-central, local, distributed, private)
  • Long-term archives and self-management of stored information including data management
  • Critical issues and issue resolution
    • Errors {e.g. patient and clinician agree the data is wrong];
    • Conflicts {one of the patient or clinician feel the data is wrong];
    • Disclosure {The patient and clinician disagrees with the level of disclosure or sharing].

Digital homecare:

  • Intelligent health-related devices (including safety and linking aspects)
  • Sensors and other wearables (e.g. intelligent clothing)
  • Tele-homecare
  • Monitoring of information recorded (internal and external control)
  • Usability and usefulness of homecare systems including ethical aspects (patients, caregivers, relatives)
  • Self-management and data management
  • Cost efficiency and cost-benefit-relationship of homecare
  • Integration and decision management
  • Relevant standardisation in, and for, the homecare domain
  • Robotics in digital homecare
  • Smart Environments
