Health Care in the Information Society by David Ingram

Attention all health informatics enthusiasts! Prof emeritus David Ingram has written a book on the history of computing in healthcare called ‘Health Care in the Information Society’, and needs our help to bring it to the masses.

David is a founding member of openEHR [1], who has played a significant role in the development of health informatics education and research in the UK. He has spent three years compiling this fascinating look at the development of computer science and information technology in the healthcare industry. His book not only provides a personal perspective on the past 75 years of the Information Age but also offers an optimistic and forward-looking view of what’s to come, and promises to be a valuable resource for anyone interested in the history and philosophy of science as well as those working in health informatics today.

The book draws together the history of people, ideas, and events, from times before the computer and connecting with the foundations and development of computer science and information technology. It surveys the often-anarchic transition of life science, medicine, and health care into the past seventy-five years of the Information Age – an era that David’s life and career have exactly mapped against. It provides an overarching view and clarity on our applied domain which for many of us is defined by its grand challenges and seeming intractability.

To make this book accessible to as many people as possible, David has chosen to go the open access route through OpenBookPublishers (OBP) in Cambridge. While this means the book will be free to download, David will need to cover the OBP costs himself. As an open-access author, he neither receives nor seeks remuneration for his work.

Congress for Digitalisation inOrthopaedics & Traumatology OTDIGITAL 2022

Welcome to the first OTdigital! Digital transformation has revolutionised our daily life and has also become an integral part of orthopaedics and traumatology. Our congress wants to provide a scientific platform for exchanging current and future core topics of digitalisation in orthopaedics and traumatology. Digitalisation is significantly changing the way how we provide care for our patients, communicate with colleagues or other healthcare partners, and conduct research. What we currently see is just the beginning!

Digital tools can improve our patients ́ safety through various points – from prevention to diagnostics, therapy and rehabilitation – and assist us in focusing more on our patient care delivery. This potential gives surgeons, nurses, and therapists worldwide broader access to high-quality performance and a relief of their workload. Our goal is to present relevant aspects of current developments, trends, and controversies of digita-lisation in  orthopaedics and traumatology. We want to establish a scientific platform and community to improve digitalisation’s use in our daily work.
