This volume contains the accepted full papers of the ICIMTH (International Conference on Informatics, Management, and Technology in Healthcare). The Scientific Programme Committee presents to the academic and professional community of Biomedical and Health Informatics the scientific outcomes of the ICIMTH 2019 Conference, which is being held from 5 to 7 July 2019 in Athens, Greece.
The ICIMTH 2019 Conference is the 17th Annual Conference in this series of scientific events, gathering scientists working in the field of Biomedical and Health Informatics from all continents as well as from the hosting country.
This year the Conference is focusing on increasing and improving our Knowledge of Healthcare in applications spanning the whole spectrum from Clinical Informatics, Health Informatics to Public Health Informatics as applied in the healthcare domain. Since Management and Organisational issues play an important role in the implementation phase of Biomedical and Health Informatics applications, topics related to the above themes are also included as an integral part of the overall theme of the Conference. We are examining the field of Biomedical and Health Informatics in a very broad framework presenting the research and application outcomes of Informatics from cell to populations, including a number of Technologies such as Imaging, Sensors, and Biomedical Equipment and Management and Organisational aspects, including legal and social issues and setting research priorities in Health Informatics. In essence, Data, Informatics, and Technology inspires health professionals and informaticians to improve healthcare for the benefit of patients.
This volume incorporates only the full papers accepted for oral presentation. It should be noted that the Proceedings are published in this series of the Conference as an e-book with e-access for ease of use and browsing without losing any of the advantages of indexing and citation in the biggest Scientific Literature Databases, such as Medline and Scopus that the series of Studies in Health Technology and Informatics (SHTI) of IOS Press provides.
At the end of the deadline we had 150 submissions, from which after reviewing we have accepted 95 as full papers to be included in the volume proceedings.
The Editors would like to thank the Members of the Scientific Programme Committee, the Organising Committee, and all Reviewers, who have performed a very professional thorough and objective refereeing of the scientific work in order to achieve a high-quality publishing achievement for a successful scientific event.
