Abstract

In constant evolution, the healthcare environment has multiple challenges to meet: cost containment, increase and ageing of the population, enormous quantities of data and quickly evloving knowledge, complex and multi-disciplinary approaches for healthcare, need for safer care, to mention but a few.
