The first of HealthGrid 2009's demos was kicked off by a fantastic presentation of Health-e-Child by Jörg Freund and David Manset. Take a look at some snippets from their talk below:
Health-e-Child is a great project which aims at developing an integrated healthcare platform for European paediatrics, incoporating both traditional and emerging sources of biomedical information. Their long-term goal is to provide uninhibited access to universal biomedical knowledge repositories for personalised and preventive healthcare, large-scale information-based biomedical research and training, and informed policy making.
