A conference entitled "Health in the in new communications age" will take place in Lisbon, Portugal, on 6-10 December 1994. The event is being organized by DG XIII of the European Commission in conjunction with the Health Ministry of Portugal (IGIF).

The emerging high capacity information and telecommunications networks are expected to have a major impact on health care by improving access, quality and continuity as well as providing solutions for budgetary problems.

The conference is intended for health professionals, administrators and decision makers, allowing them to anticipate how they can benefit from the new technology and how they can influence the shape of new services.

Organizational and socio-economic issues will also be discussed. European activities such as multimedia patent records and "telemedicine" applications will be presented. An exhibition with live demonstrations of potential applications will give users an opportunity to meet industrial manufacturers.
