Abstract: The Health Informatics Conference Proceedings 1997 recognises the importance in health care in the functioning of any economy, and examines what steps have been taken to improve health care delivery through quality, outcomes and costs. Also discussed is the way in which to improve the delivery of health care for all, and to focus on systems that improve communication, provide standardisation, support clinical decision-making, and which are focussed on the electronic medical record, whilst avoiding the existing trend of information systems in health care where there is more interest in the technology rather than information management infrastructure which provide little benefit in health outcomes. These proceedings endeavour to offer continued enlightenment to all, and that health care will be improved in each region as a result of the knowledge gained through this conference.
