Abstract

The era we are living in is often referred to as “the age of communication”. Modern technologies, including world-wide telecommunication networks are now facilitating the global pooling of healthcare information and medical knowledge independent of location. The assemblage of telematics and services offers a base for multimedia applications, for example E-Learning as well as E-Health. The internet has become an important source for retrieving medical and other knowledge. It can help significantly to decide what is clinically relevant or what is necessary for quality assurance in a successful practice management. In this paper, we will introduce various multimedia programs with on- and offline access in use or provided by the authors' institutions, such as the CranioTrainer software for training craniotomy localizations in neurosurgery (Hannover Medical School) or the K-Space application for the knowledge space of medicine (Quintessence Publishing Group), which supports global and intercultural knowledge transfer and enhances interdisciplinary research and education.
