Ono Academic College Invites you to a Conference on National Healthcare Record Systems


A little about the conference‏:‏

Complete, comprehensive medical information is essential if caregivers are to ‎provide their patients with efficient, effective treatment. Many professionals, both medical ‎and financial, believe that having complete, comprehensive medical information can, at times, save both lives and costs. In the past, information sharing was only ‎possible through the patient, but thanks to increased computerization of medical ‎record keeping, an increasing number of health organizations, sponsors and ‎regulators are initiating projects to share computerized medical information. This is ‎also the case in Israel, where the Ministry of Health is leading the ‎National Medical Record Project.‎


The conference will discuss these and other issues: Who owns the information? Who ‎can view what information? Who will make these decisions? Who is responsible for ‎the integrity and accuracy of the information? Who will protect the information? ‎


Participants will include project leaders from the Ministry of Health, a ‎representative of the Israel Medical Association, media professionals, technology ‎professionals and researchers from academia. Join us for a fascinating discussion of ‎a subject that is critical for all of us. ‎
