This book discusses information processing and communication in medicine, with the aim to improve quality in healthcare and diagnoses. By object-oriented analysis, modelling and design, the approach enables a development according to the needs of the medical environment. Following this approach, medical applications are realised using a heterogeneous distributed information management system. This system provides integration and communication of multimedia information for medical services. The book includes a contribution on medical terminology in clinical applications. The integrated hospital systems and the telemedicine services are well described and there is an interesting account on digital signal processing. It shows the underlying strengths the achievements in delivering such a huge and broad-ranging set of demonstrations in clinical practice. It forms an important record of a major contribution in the evolution of health informatics and discusses information processing and communication in medicine and presents a different approach.
