Join us at the inaugural scientific conference of the Faculty of Clinical Informatics – the foremost event for the science and practice of clinical informatics, ehealth and digital health. The conference offers an opportunity to learn about pioneering research and insights for using information to improve health and well- being. The conference will have topics across the spectrum from managing information and communications for improving patient care, to tracking the health of populations.
