HIWW WILL SHUT DOWN BY JANUARY 2015 AFTER NEARLY 20 YEARS OF OPERATION

Health Informatics World Wide, a Web index of research and educational institutions in the fields of Health Informatics and Medical Informatics has been available to WWW users since 1995. It was created when Internet and the World Wide Web were in their infancy, at a time where manually curated Web directories constituted important resources for navigation.

Over the last two decades the internet has changed dramatically. Powerful search technology as well as social networks have made web indexes obsolete. This is the reason why we decided to shut down this service. Resources for its maintenance do no longer justify the effort put into it. Web trafic on this site has decreased in a way that it is not attractive for sponsors.

We thank all users that have remained loyal to this site and apologize for the increased update intervals in recent years. We are also grateful to those who helped us maintain the service up to date. Old versions of HIWW remain stored in the Web Archive



Health Informatics World Wide (www.hiww.org) was a regularly updated index of the most relevant links to websites on Health Informatics (also Medical Informatics, Nursing Informatics, ).

hiww.org listed related institutions and associations. The entries were alphabetically ordered by country and location.

The acronyms following the link descriptions (e.g. AI, BIO, CBT) refer to the main research, development and teaching areas of each institution. The key for these acronyms is to be found on the right hand side of the page. By clicking on one of the acronyms you can also search the database by topic area.

The information on each institution reflected exclusively the data available from its internet pages. The index focuses on institutions of research and education. The editors reserved the right to decide which institutions are listed.

Health Informatics World Wide was maintained by Stefan Schulz at the Department of Medical Biometry and Medical Informatics, Freiburg University, Germany.
