IMICH 2002 Report for CARING Newsletter.
The International Mobile Informatics Conference in Healthcare (IMICH) was focused on the use of personal digital assistants in health care and was one of the first conferences in the US on this topic. We had a variety of speakers from a variety of settings - nurses, physician, technical experts, and librarians, from vendors, the Visiting Nurse Association, medical centers, schools of nursing, and the National Institutes of Health from the US and Canada. Representatives from 12 vendors spent breaks and the lunch period educating the over 100 attendees about their products.
Another CARING member speaker, Mimi Hassett, discussed using change theory to help in the adoption of technology. The high evaluations reflected that participants were happy with the speakers, enjoyed the food, and liked the location. Contact hours were awarded for the event. We had great give-aways including two Palm personal digital assistants won by CARING members.
The IMICH Co-Chairs thank all the sponsors, speakers, volunteers, and contributors which made the event a huge success.
