Agents in Medical Informatics
Conference Proceeding Article
In this paper we discuss the role for agents in medical informatics and review some current applications. The paper will be divided into four sections. Section 1 will briefly introduce current trends in agent technology research. Section 2 will present the motivation for using agent technology in the medical practice. Section 3 will review some current applications of agents in medical practice. For the sake of brevity, these applications will be divided into four areas namely, shared access to medical information, co-operative medical decision making, remote care delivery and medical training. Section 4 will contain the concluding remarks, highlight the advantages and limitations of using agents in medical practice and suggest possible areas for future research work.
