On 19th and 20th January, United4Health and the European Health Telematics Association (EHTEL) co-organized a ‘Joint Digital Healthcare Symposium’ with a subtitle: ‘Our Digital Health: … is everyone ready?’. The event took place at the Stanhope Hotel in Brussels, Belgium.
“Our Digital Health:
… is everyone ready?”
The Joint Digital Healthcare Symposium convened the Thought Leading European eHealth community to join the collocation of the United4Health Final Conference and the 7th Annual EHTEL eHealth Symposium.
The events’ agenda brought together European, National and Regional eHealth stakeholders and policymakers to debate what it really means to use eHealth and mHealth at scale to transform healthcare delivery:
- European Healthcare systems are at a crossroads. Balancing cost, accessibility and quality of healthcare seems to be an impossible equation.
- Stakeholders from the field will present lessons learned on what it really means to use eHealth and mHealth at scale to transform healthcare delivery.
- Learn about the headline lessons learned and outcomes from the evaluation of the large scale European telehealth deployment project United4Health.
- A look forward into the future of healthcare transformation.
