Over 100 projects have been funded under the Telematics Applications Programme, within the Third and Fourth Framework Programmes, in the area of health. A considerable number of these will be presented at this year's MEDICA trade fair and exhibition on medicine, MEDICA '95, which will be held in Dusseldorf, Germany, from 22 to 25 November 1995.

A permanent feature of this fair is "MEDICA-Medienstrasse", the most important medical software exhibition. This will present the latest developments in the area of medical software including the radical new possibilities in diagnosis and treatment being offered by image banks, multimedia, virtual reality, information superhighways and telemedicine.

In particular "MEDICA-Medienstrasse" will feature a section dedicated to projects funded under the Health Telematics programme of the European Union. Software developers and doctors from all over the EU will, on this occasion, be unveiling their new programmes under the banner "HEALTH TELEMATICS: EU projects show the way to the future". Projects to be presented include:

- TANIT (Telematics for Anaesthesia and Intensive Therapy);
- OPHTEL (Telematics in Ophthalmology);
- HERMES (Telematics Healthcare - Remoteness and Mobility Factors in Common European Scenarios): The HERMES-services will be focused on emergency and high dependency telemedicine applications and will include passenger airlines, European holiday resorts, ambulances, high-risk newborns, ambulatory cardiology patients and on-call doctors/nurses/midwives;
- SCENE/CARDI ASSIST: 3D ultrasound support for cardiac diagnosis and treatment;
- MANSEV (Market Authorization by Network Submission and Evaluation): aimed at the improvement of the market authorization process for human and veterinary medicinal products through the exploitation of a telematics application;
- ATIM/VATAM (assessment of Information technology in Medicine): compilation of an inventory of the methods and tools used for the technological assessment of information technology in medicine in general, and for imaging and knowledge-based systems in particular;
- DIABCARE: telematics application allowing an automatic and anonymous comparison of data on the quality of diabetes therapy.

The fair will also feature the annual MEDIZIN software competition (second prize sponsored by the EU) which will award prizes to the most promising software developments.
