This minitrack focuses on a spectrum of IT applications in healthcare related to a variety of problems: from data sharing in primary care, hospitals and public health domains to integrated and pervasive healthcare environments. We have chosen 7 papers from US, Canada, UK, Germany and Austria, which show the diversity of IT healthcare applications. They pave the way to systems where classical healthcare, delivered by professionals, is extended with personalized self- care, or home care or any other health service, which can be delivered at any time and in any place.
