Advances in Informatics, Management and Technology in Healthcare
# of pages614
Data science, informatics and technology have inspired health professionals and informaticians to improve healthcare for the benefit of all patients, and the field of biomedical and health informatics is one which has become increasingly important in recent years.
This volume presents the papers delivered at ICIMTH 2022, the 20th International Conference on Informatics, Management, and Technology in Healthcare, held in Athens, Greece, from 1-3 July 2022.
The ICIMTH Conference is an annual scientific event attended by scientists from around the world working in the field of biomedical and health informatics. This year, thanks to the improvement in the situation as regards the COVID-19 pandemic and the consequent lifting of restrictions, the conference was once again a live event, but virtual sessions by means of teleconferencing were also enabled for those unable to travel due to local restrictions. The field of biomedical and health informatics was examined from a very broad perspective, with participants presenting the research and application outcomes of informatics from cell to populations, including several technologies such as imaging, sensors, biomedical equipment, and management and organizational aspects, including legal and social issues. More than 230 submissions were received, with a total of 130 accepted as full papers and 19 as short communication and poster papers after review. As expected, a significant number of papers were related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Providing a state-of-the-art overview of biomedical and health informatics, the book will be of interest to all those working in the field of healthcare, researchers and practitioners alike.
