Medical culture and healthcare are on a threshold of technical revolution. Medical information technologies promptly invade in all branch of medicine and organization of healthcare (family medicine, transition to insurance medicine, creation of uniform information space, integration in European medical space).
They are equally important in operation of a doctor, nurse, doctor - researcher, doctor - teacher, organizer of healthcare, manager of healthcare.
Medical information technologies from a theoretical and exclusive plane closely have approximated to medical practice today.
The problem is very multilateral. It includes information technologies, equipment, legal base, standards, licensing, and certification of medical software products, tutoring and much other.
The Ukrainian Association of "Computer Medicine" (UACM) is 10 years now. All these years UACM is the member of International Medical Informatics Association (IMIA) and European Federation for Medical Informatics (EFMI), closely cooperates to the European Commission of Telemedicine (DGXIII), International Telecommunication Union (ITU). It gives access to off-the-shelf world achievements in field of medical informatics and telemedicine for Ukrainian experts.
Under the plan of Ministry of Healthcare of Ukraine in May 28-29, 2003 in Kharkiv on the basis of Kharkiv Medical Academy of Postgraduate Education will held the International Conference "Computer Medicine 2003 ".
