A personal review by Rod Ward

HC2005 Logo

These reports are written on the fly during the conference and posted on the web on a daily(ish) basis, as there are 5 concurrent themes I can not attend all sessions so these comments are based on my own experiences and views. This year I am attending the conference as a member of the press for the journal Computers Informatics Nursing.

Most of my immediate comments/thoughts/photos etc will be posted on the conference blog which I have pioneered with Peter Murray. You are welcome to comment on items on the blog or register & have more flexibility over what you post.

The official conference web sites is at: http://www.health-informatics.org/

IDX stand
The IDX stand seemed to be the busiest on a first look around the stands
