The Web is changing the nature of health care delivery. Health care professionals and their patients have access to an increasingly vast amount of information on web-sites around the world; through email and interactive web-sites physicians can maintain close communications with patients; and remote monitoring equipment placed in the patient's home can send data cheaply through the Internet. As a result, opportunities abound to improve the quality of care through better patient and provider education, improved monitoring of chronic conditions, better managed physician-patient relationships, and increased involvement of patients in managing their health. Concomitant with opportunities to improve the quality of care is the opportunity to make the delivery of care more efficient and less costly.
The Telehealth (eHealth) track invites you to submit a paper or presentation proposal on your work in health applications of the Web. We are particularly interested in development of new technologies, innovative medical and health application, evaluations of new systems, and discussions of privacy, security, and policy implications.
Relevant topics include, but are not limited to the following:
- On-line health records

- Patient monitoring and home care
- Web-facilitated patient-physician communications
- Remote consultation
- On-line medical decision support
- Medical applications of web-linked hand-held devices
- Public health surveillance
- Health data privacy
- Technical and organizational challenges to eHealth
