The European Commission, DG XIII, has published the second volume of the 1997 Healthcare Telematics compendium, which gives detailed information on all the projects funded under the Healthcare sector of the Telematics Applications programme within the Fourth RTD Framework Programme (1994-1998). The first volume provides a global overview, and a synthetic presentation, of the clustered groups of projects. The aim of the second volume is to present a more detailed description of each project, including its expected key results. The publication provides an overview of each project, including the project's purposes and objectives, the main results, a list of deliverables, and contact details for each project participant. A full list of relevant contacts within the Commission is also provided at the end of the publication. An on-line version of the compendium, regularly updated, can be found on the Web, at: http://www.ehto.be/ A final document will be produced when the results of all the projects funded under the Healthcare sector are available, sometime after the last projects conclude in late 1999.
