These mobile units can solve cheaply and immediately the shortage of equipment and medical specialists by combining mobility with telemedicine.
The workshop aims to raise the authorities' awareness of this kind of solutions and to encourage scientists to make these units more efficient.
This workshop will focus on the major challenges in Telemedicine and Mobile Medical Units. We seek papers addressing the following issues, but are not limited to
- Participatory design
- Implementation studies
- Assessment of the effectiveness of telemedicine
- Economic evaluation of telemedicine
- Clinical telemedicine practice
- Medical connectivity
- Enabling technologies
- Health policy and regulation
- Health informatics
