Webinar: Distributed Systems in e-Health

Last week I hosted a webinar on distributed systems in e-health. The speakers were Derek Hill, CEO of Ixico, and Michael Rigby, Professor of Health Information Strategy at Keele University. Derek launched Ixico three years ago as a spin-off of the UK e-Science Programme and now it is selling services internationally. Michael's project is still in the research stages but in my opinion it shows a more robust approach to managing health records than the current approach being implemented by the English National Health Service.
