Clinical Decision Support and Health Information Systems – Potential and Pitfalls of New Technologies
25 April 2018, Swiss TPH Spring Symposium 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.
