EHTEL, eHealth Focal Point for Europe
Thank You for making the event so lively and insightful:
EHTEL Symposium 2012 "Fact not Fiction: the future of eHealth is already here (6 - 7 December 2012, EESC - Brussels, Belgium)
EHTEL Symposium 2011 and RENEWING HeALTH Midterm Workshop (30 November/1 December 2011): More than 150 eHealth stakeholders met on November 30th and December 1th 2011 to discuss how to change the traditional delivery models of European healthcare and welfare for making them better fit to the long-term needs of persons with chronic conditions. The dialogue on new strategies and their implementation was particularly inspired by a keynote from Kaiser Permanente, US. The EHTEL2011 Symposium - colocated with the RENEWING HeALTH Midterm Workshop - convened European-wide leaders, drivers and frontrunners, including health policy, competence centres and many stakeholder representatives. The event was kindly hosted by the EESC, the voice of organised civil society in the Union's decision-making process. [All presentations can be downloaded (PDF)].
"eHealth 2020 – What Synergies for Europe?" [EHTEL - Intel Workshop] (12 October 2011): More than one hundred eHealth-enthusiasts – representing a wide stakeholder spectrum and many Nationalities – joined in to discuss two main perspectives of the future of eHealth: 1) From Experience to Vision: Trusting eHealth; 2) From Vision to Actions: Synergies for the Future of eHealth in Europe. The objective of the workshop was to highlight what is needed both at European and Member State level to take eHealth services a significant step forward, i.e. beyond the mere deployment of infrastructures and supporting a long term vision for eHealth in Europe. The objective of this report is not to minute what has been said, but to highlight the key messages that have been delivered by the panellists and by the proactive audience. “Still a lot to do for making eHealth part of our real life. Don’t give up” opened Milan Cabrnoch, MEP and host of this workshop. This message has been well received, loud and clear. [read on, EHTEL event page with presentations]
