EFMI STC 2010 submission deadline – January 15

Bernd Blobel, SPC Chair of the EFMI Special Topic Conference (STC) 2010, has announced that the deadline for submitting contributions to the event (to be held in Reykjavik, Iceland on June 2 – 4, 2010) has been extended to 15 January, 2010. There will be no further extension.

Full information about the EFMI STC 2010 is available at – the Call for Papers is at (which also has a link to a downloadable pdf version of the Call).

The EFMI STC 2010 theme is “Seamless care – safe care; The Challenges of Interoperability and Patient Safety in Health Care”. The conference will explore the challenges facing electronic exchange of health information, particularly interoperability of systems and the implications for patient safety and continuity of care. Participants are invited to reflect on the levels laid out by the EU recommendation of 2008 on interoperability of electronic health record systems, namely the political level, the organisational level, the technical level, the semantic level and the level of education and awareness rising.

The issue of traceability as an important facilitator for interoperability and safety will be highlighted in the conference by a special workshop jointly organized by HL7 and GS1.
