Clinical Decision Support and Health Information Systems – Potential and Pitfalls of New Technologies

25 April 2018, Swiss TPH Spring Symposium
Verein Borromäum, Byfangweg 6, 4051 Basel, Switzerland

New technologies are progressively transforming health care delivery. In health facilities, point-of-care devices can support clinical personnel in the diagnosis and care of patients. At system level, health information tools help aggregate and visualise data thereby facilitating decision-making for managers and policy makers.

The Spring Symposium 2018 invites health system professionals and students to share and review experiences of technology-enabled healthcare with a particular focus on low- and middle-income countries.

  • Point-of-care solutions to improve diagnosis and care 
  • Data systems to support evidence-based decision-making
  • Current digital trends and innovations
