Community Research and Development Information Service - CORDIS


The creation of the Single Market has resulted in the increased mobility of labour within the EC. There is therefore a growing need to transmit information about a patient's medical history to any treatment centre he may attend anywhere in the EC, in order to provide the same level of service in health care. Equal access to care is also a demand that can be met even in remote and scarcely populated regions provided communication with health centres of the appropriate technology level can be consulted for diagnostic or therapeutic purposes; telecommunications may be able to provide the solution. The proceedings of the workshop reflect experiences and aspirations of sector actors and patients alike. Specific topics covered include medical and communications aspects of telemedicine, and applications within the industry.
