Since its debut in 1998 Medica Media, the independent forum for e-health, telemedicine and medical IT, has been an established fixture at the world's biggest medical trade fair, Medica in Dusseldorf
For Medica 2008, the 40th World Forum of Medicine (19 - 22 November), Teletherapy will be a focal theme at Medica Media in exhibition hall 16.
Other themes covered include: eHealth: benefits of the electronic health card; medicine and the internet: web2.0 in health care; Shared Care: changes in the doctor-patient relationship; and technology trends in the home care sector.
One thing is for sure: new methods and processes will be essential tools for physicians.
Medica Media responds here with its wide range of topics and corresponding continuing medical education programme.
First-class information is guaranteed by the Medica Media advisory board and its high-calibre members, says the organiser.
Tying in with the extensive programme offered by the Medica Media forum, over 430 of the nearly 4200 exhibitors at Medica will be showcasing innovative software and hardware applications as well as services for medical IT (exhibition focus in Hll 15).
