Conference on the future of information technology and medicine, Warsaw, Poland
A conference on the future of information technology and medicine will take place from 24 to 25 November 2011 in Warsaw, Poland.
Recent technological advances have allowed for the analysis of patients all the way down to their proteins, chemicals and DNA sequences in just a couple of hours. On the basis of these data, a physician can quickly suggest individual advice or therapy on drugs, health risks, consequences of lifestyle changes, recommendations for diets or rehabilitation measures.
Funded by the Seventh Framework Programme, the 'Information technology future of medicine' (ITFOM) project has sought to use information communication technology (ICT) to revolutionise human health care. The project aims to create a computer model, a 'virtual patient', by developing general models of human pathways, tissues, and ultimately of the whole human. The conference will present outcomes and achievements of the past six months.
The event will also be a forum for bilateral discussions between all stakeholders, European Commission representatives, national funding agencies and others.
