Based on the success of the 2nd edition of the eHealth conference series held in Istanbul in September 2009, the aim of eHealth 2010 is to bring together experts from academia, industry and global healthcare institutions such as WHO and ECDC to stimulate cutting-edge research discussions, share experience with real-world healthcare service providers and policy makers, as well as provide numerous business opportunities.

Swine flu epidemics in 2009 demonstrated a breakthrough in use of web intelligence harnessing and mining user-generated content in social networks and Web 2.0 tools for rapid healthcare information dissemination and outbreak detection. In addition, despite substantial budgets spent on eHealth in recent years, existing healthcare services do not sufficiently address the issue of patient privacy or trust, nor the potential in e-learning and web mining for delivering 21st-century healthcare systems for European citizens. The key topic of eHealth 2010 will be investigating a realistic potential of Web 2.0 and Web Intelligence in providing evidence-based healthcare information, assist in outbreak detection and control, and provide quality-assured and effective interventions for patients and global users.



* Web Intelligence - Web 2.0 and social networks, techniques for harnessing and mining user-generated content, provision of pertinent information to patients, outbreak detection and early warning systems, data collection and analysis for surveillance and epidemiology.
* Privacy, trust and security - Electronic patient records, models for trust and privacy, novel mobile encryption technologies, identity federation, role based access control, privacy enhancing technologies.
* Healthcare ontologies and knowledge management systems - Annotation, health care ontologies, coding standards, communication standards, quality tagging and quality of service, distribution issues, coding systems and ontology mapping, search, user customisation, alert agents.
* E-learning, educational games and the impact of information delivery to patients and professionals - Using digital libraries in building online communities, moderated discussion groups, qualitative and quantitative evaluation studies, user attitudes towards the knowledge, studies of changes of user attitude with respect to digital libraries.
* Web 2.0 in healthcare, wellbeing and online communities of practice - Community of practice, Web 2.0, user support groups, blogs, personalisation and profiling, online support for healthy lifestyle, wellbeing and public interventions.
* Performance Monitoring and Evaluation Frameworks - Performance evaluation methodologies, virtualized models for evidence based medicine, patient/process flow models, sensor technologies and RFID tagging, mobile healthcare technologies, asset management systems, application to evidence based medicine, industrial practice and experience.
