EHTEL, eHealth Focal Point for Europe


Leading Service Innovation in Health and Care - Athens 2014

EHTEL is proud to have welcomed - with kind support of NHS24 Scotland and IBM - 110 leaders in European health, care and technology on the evening of 13 May 2014 at the Royal Olympic Hotel in Athens. Inspired by EHTEL President George Crooks, panellists (From left: Theodore Vontetsianos, Sotiria General Chest Diseases Hospital of Athens; Alex Neil, Scottish Cabinet Secretary for Health and Wellbeing; Petra Wilson, General Secretary, International Diabetes Foundation; John Crawford, IBM; Christina Wanscher, Health Innovation Centre of Southern Denmark) presented meaningful responses to the challenges of recent health statistics: The message was the need for a reform in health and social care that can involve a more extensive use of technology. Through the figures quoted, the expert attendees began to formulate new ideas for the future. Fighting chronic conditions - chief among them diabetes and its potentially debilitating results - was often the lens through which the organisational and technological challenges lying ahead were seen throughout the evening.
