EHTEL 2015 Thought Leadership Debate at eHealth Week
Healthcare on the Move - The mobile triangle of information EHTEL Thought Leadership Event 2015 - Healthcare on the Move - Event Report

EHTEL, Assuta and MSD provided a series of visionary talks - nicely supported by the view on the skyline of Riga. Our distinguished guests - leaders in mobile health and integrated healthcare - have reflected on the mobile triangle of health information (patients, physicians and provider organisations). This triangle opens up fascinating new opportunities for patients at the point of care as well as for health professional practice. “Move the information, not the patient” has never held more true.

Challenged by George Crooks (EHTEL), panellists Guy Eiferman (MSD), Dany Engel (Assuta), Joan Cornet (Mobile World Capital), Peteris Zilgalvis (EC) and the Latvian Health Ministry will debated questions like
- How to best leverage mobile options for patients and health professionals?
- How to avoid "digital burnout" by (not) flooding devices with unfiltered alerts.
- How to securely manage medical data of patients and consumers in the cloud?
- How to balance privacy and the promises of Big Data?
