HEALTH CARE: Advanced Informatics in Medicine (AIM) 1992

I obtained a free copy from Niels Rossing, Commission of the
European Communities, DG XIII/F-6, AIM Central Office, Rue de
la Loi 200, B-1049 BRUSSELS .

AIM is the platform for establishing and integrating
conceptual models, developing workstations, a common medical
terminology, coding, and testing of decision support systems.

The mission of AIM is:
o To promote effective collaboration of all Health care
o To develop tools, techniques and practices that support a
common European approach to Health Care informatics and
o To promote their acceptance in the community and by the

42 R&D projects were completed by 1990. A network of over
3000 European health professionals was completed (including
industry and service providers). CEN TC251 controls a directory
of medical informatics (MI) standards. [For the AIM-II phase,]
37 grants were awarded for projects in MI in the following areas:

Telemedicine, Computer Assisted decision making, image
analysis and communications, structure of a common medical
record, integration of telematics between centers, and quality
assessment. There are summaries of the following projects:
