Medical informatics has revolutionized healthcare in recent years, and one of the major challenges now faced by health professionals everywhere is the further improvement of healthcare by making more effective use of the data from biomedical informatics, not least for education and decision support.

This book presents the 52 full papers (accepted from 95 initial submissions) delivered at the Special Topic Conference of the European Federation for Medical Informatics (EFMI STC 2018), held in Zagreb, Croatia, on 15 and 16 October 2018. The EFMI STC is one of Europe`s leading conferences for the sharing of current professional and scientific knowledge in health informatics processes, and the topics covered here have been broadly divided into two sections; decision support and education.

Offering an overview of current medical informatics research, this book will undoubtedly prove invaluable for the professional development of healthcare practitioners, as well as contributing to knowledge sustainability within the field of medical informatics.
