On ICMCC

Using knowledge to create knowledge is the major concept of the emerging knowledge society. This way, knowledge becomes sustainable and a tool to realize the millennium goals. But to achieve this in the most effective way, we will have to make inventories of knowledge.

ICMCC (International Council on Medical & Care Compunetics) is an international foundation operating as the knowledge centre for medical and care compunetics (COMPUting & Networking, its EThICs and Social/societal implications), making information on medicine and care available to patients using compunetics as well as distributing information on the use of compunetics in medicine and care to patients and professionals.

Knowledge is derived from the synthesis between information and experience. ICMCC is becoming the global guiding platform in bringing information and experience related to medical and care compunetics together, thus creating the necessary inventories of knowledge. As we are aiming at both the patient/citizen and the professional we also target and facilitate the shifting relationship between the two.

For 4 full months this site had not been updated due to serious health issues. But now I’m trying to pick up the pieces again. It will not be done as extensively as previously, for the time being the focus will be on news related to EHRs.

Going Dutch again

Now that my health is improving considerably, I’m slowly picking up pieces. Slowly, as I announced previously, so I will occupy  myself for the time being with EHRs and the (inter)national problems concerning their development and implementation.

AHA-Erlebnis

I am not a US citizen, so I can’t officially react to the latest news from the US patient access front nor put my opinion on the “protest page“. What is going on. First see this post from the Healthcare IT News and following see the post my friend e-Patient Dave wrote about it.

Guest Post: WHCC – Washington, DC, April 16-18, 2012

As a public health information technology consulting company, it seemed unusual for STC to attend the recent 9th Annual World Health Care Congress, a three-day conference supported by all major health insurance companies, clinical provider networks, and emerging Accountable Care Organizations. The attendee list reads like a who’s who of the health care industry, all working to improve patient care while tackling today’s challenges.
