HIMSS Liège Congress: the Continuity of Care Maturity Model
The University Hospital of Liège (CHU de Liège), the University of Liège (ULg) and the HIMSS French Community organize an eHealth event, HIMSS Liège, on March 28th and 29th 2017 at ULg, Place du 20 Août 7, 4000 Liège.
The program of the event will be based on the HIMSS Continuity of Care Maturity Model (CCMM), an eHealth implementation engine.
More specifically, integrated healthcare systems will be discussed and compared. In a second step, this event will explore the importance of the data as well as the tools at disposal to improve the patient experience. Based on the central geographical location of the city of Liège, the border problems will be discussed in order to facilitate the exchange of health data. A guided tour of the CHU de Liège and an exclusive dinner to facilitate the sharing of experiences between professionals in the eHealth sector are also included.
In collaboration with a team at the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA), researchers from GIGA-Neurosciences have discovered a new gene responsible for a seizure syndrome called juvenile myoclonic epilepsy (JME). This discovery was made as part of an international consortium that studies genetic abnormalities responsible for epileptic diseases. It is being published this week in
The LIGHTSHEET MICROSCOPY can deliver optical sections, 3D reconstructions and timelapse movies of whole sample volumes at subcellular resolutions. The fast scan speeds and low phototoxicity of the lightsheet allow to record the development of fluorescent transgenic animals over long time periods, such as zebrafish embryos. Alternatively 3D reconstructions of fixed whole organs or whole embryos,
The researchers discovered that this cellular dialogue controls the growth of the cerebral cortex and that its impairment leads a cortical malformation previously associated with autism in mice . Their results are published in the prestigious scientific journal Cell. The cerebral cortex contains excitatory and inhibitory interneurons. The former are produced locally and move by
