Health and Accessibility — Hospital information system and telehealth

The Libre Software Meeting offers this year again a venue of choice for actors in the world of health. Through the Health theme, the committee hopes to distribute the LSM and enhance open source projects in this field. To better target the various exchanges that take place, the coordinators of the health topic offer several types of meetings:

  • meetings "solutions", with lectures and round tables to present solutions dedicated to our research.
  • conferences "state of art" between practitioners, developers and scientists to discuss what are the specific needs of users, what works well or less well, discuss approaches...
  • presentations of "technical" between developers and scientists. This will initiate exchanges between communities that may not have the opportunity to meet and perhaps to initiate new collaborations or projects.

Workshops will be available to practice and exchange ideas about tools presented by their designers or by users already experienced in these solutions.
