Summary "The theme of Medinfo2007 is “Building Sustainable Health Systems”. Particular foci are health challenges for the developing and developed world, the social and political context of healthcare, safe and effective healthcare, and the difficult task of building and maintaining complex health information systems. Sustainable health information systems are those that can meet today's needs without compromising the needs of future generations. To build a global knowledge society, there needs to be an increased cooperation between science and technology and access to high-quality knowledge and information. The papers presented are refereed and from all over the world. They reflect the breadth and depth of the field of biomedical and health informatics, covering topics such as; health information systems, knowledge and data management, education, standards, consumer health and human factors, emerging technologies, sustainability, organizational and economic issues, genomics, and image and signal processing. As this volume carries such a wide collection, it will be of great interest to anyone engaged in biomedical and health informatics research and application"--Publisher's description
