The International interdisciplinary conference “Health Archives and Digital Humanities between the present and the future” will be held in Viterbo, Santa Maria in Gradi, 3-4 October, 2019. The Conference is organized by University of Tuscia, the Instituto de História Contemporânea of Nova University of Lisbon, and by the University of Macerata.
The progressive digitalization of documents and the dematerialisation of processes, pursued both by the European Union and by non-European countries as a necessary phase to stimulate innovation, economic growth and the development of online services could not fail to affect healthcare facilities.
The substitution of traditional paper documents with digital entities equivalent in legal terms, but substantially different in terms of consistency, editing/drafting, signing, archiving and preservation, is happening with not a few difficulties and perplexities of stakeholders.
This multidisciplinary conference will reflect on the various aspects of managing, preserving, interacting with medical records in the digital world. The full programme and registration are available on the conference website
