The aims of the concertation meeting is to bring together a number of Healthcare Telematics projects to be exposed to the principles of universal access and to develop a mutual understanding of the challenges and opportunities of universal access in the healthcare telematics sector. This one-day meeting will seek to facilitate a review of the state of the art and exchange of experiences between universal access advocates (as represented by the IS4ALL project http://is4all.ics.forth.gr (a thematic network in the form of a Working Group) and the healthcare telematics industry and research community (as represented by the invited Health Telematics projects). This will help participants to develop common insights and identify areas of potential benefit and cross-fertilisation of available knowledge.
During the meeting, project representatives will obtain a detailed insight of the aims and objectives of the IS4ALL project and will become aware of its anticipated outcomes and potential synergies. In this respect, the IS4ALL project will make available prior to the meeting appropriate background documentation. Participants will be asked to briefly present outlines of their projects and formulate project-specific challenges to the universal access community. Following the presentations, the group will seek to address questions and issues specific to each project in an attempt to develop a common vocabulary and terms of reference as to the scope and meaning of universal access in the broad area of healthcare telematics. The meeting will close by consolidating the results of the discussion and to relate them to IS4ALL project milestones and outcomes.
