Research in the Medical Informatics & Telemedicine group started in 1997-1998.
Some of our areas of interest:
- Telemedicine systems for private homes and telecare/telehomecare systems,
- Distributed Electronic Health Records,
- Patient diaries / EHR for children and
- Electronic Health Surveillance.
All projects are done in cooperation with, or closely connected to, the Norwegian Centre for Telemedicine and the University Hospital of North Norway. Students in the MI&T group participate in construction of medical & telemedicine systems from a computer science perspective.
In addition to bachelor, masters and PhD degrees in computer science, the department offers a two years international master’s degree in telemedicine and e-health.
