The Health Telematics Unit of DG XIII of the Commission of the European Communities (AIM Office) will hold a seminar on 21 January 1994 in Brussels to present the results of the METROPOLIS study on "Telematics Systems Strategies to Improve Health Care Delivery in Metropolitan Areas".

This study investigated, from a strategic and operational point of view, the situation of health care delivery in large metropolitan areas, the specific needs felt by decision-makers and the opportunities to improve the present situation through use of advanced telematics systems. Paris, Madrid and Copenhagen were selected as case studies. In addition, the study identified the potential role and contribution of European Community programmes, especially in the field of RTD.

The seminar will focus on:
- Case studies presented by healthcare and social services decision-makers;
- Proposed issues to be addressed by future European Community RTD programmes.

Presentations will highlight present needs and problems, put forward potential solutions, and explain the interest of collaboration at European level.
