The seminar considered the health care needs of the 21st century based on recognition at the time that we were on the verge of a huge technological change due to developments in genomics and infomatics.
The seminar gave an exciting opportunity to set up a forum for interdisciplinary discussion about the future. Seminar presentations are reproduced together with the discussions, which covered 'Framework for Healthcare Networks', 'Hospitals of the Future' and 'Design and Construction Strategies'.
