Invitation to Congress

FROM THE CONGRESS CHAIRS

The COVID 19 pandemic, which affects our world and causes radical changes in many areas of our lives, has deeply affected healthcare professionals and all health systems, who are the backbone of this struggle, and also revealed the importance of digitalization. With the increase in data for many years, the diversification of the tools to process these data, the increase in sensors and other information sources from which we can collect data, digital health was already becomeing one of the remarkable areas in healthcare. Today, Digital Health plays an important role in increasing the reach, impact and efficiency of modern healthcare. The health sector in our country experienced this transformation years ago, produced and implemented some of the world's most advanced systems to monitor, manage and deliver patient-centered health services. In the pandemic, these practices have become even more important and have been integrated into our entire lives. Digital Health means that our patients can benefit from tried and tested technologies in areas such as telecare, telehealth, mHealth and eHealth, artificial intelligence and data use in health, wearable and portable medical devices, smart hospital applications, innovations in medical education, medical and surgical robots. Digital Health provides cost effective and comfortable services to patients that will control patients’ illnesses and recover in a short time. It gives clinicians, managers and researchers tools to plan and deliver care and more effective treatments, improving efficiency through seamless information transfer and analysis of vital information.

The main topics of Digital Health can be summarized as;

  • Tele-health,
  • Clinical information systems,
  • Integrated regional / national / international health communication networks,
  •  Mobile-health,
  • Wearable health technologies,
  • We can summarize it as big data management and artificial intelligence.

The places where digitalization in health has increased rapidly with the pandemic are;

  • Digitalization of primary care services,
  • Fast production with 3D printing,
  • Online monitoring of chronic patients,
  • Fillation and health tracking applications,
  • COVID diagnosis-prognosis support software,
  • Good and healthy life,
  •  Mental health. 

Therefore, the main theme of the 5th International Health Informatics and Information Security Congress will be "Digital Health in Pandemic".

 The congress will try to create a platform where Information Technologies in Health and Information Security Practices in the World and innovations will be discussed. The mission of the congress, which will be attended by many international institution representatives and experts; will explore different applications, achievements and global trends, Information Technologies and Information Security in the World in the context of health services. In addition, this congress will provide the participants with the opportunity to discuss the experience and practices necessary to provide safer, effective and effective health services with the information technologies that are renewed every day. In this way, you will have the opportunity to discuss the basic approaches in providing Information Technologies in Health and Information Security in the World and test new systems and ideas that go beyond traditional boundaries during the congress, through the papers, efforts and workshops of participants, conferences, field researchers and practitioners
