The EHTEL 2013 Symposium was hosted by the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC). The EESC is a consultative body that gives representatives of Europe's socio-occupational interest groups, and others, a formal platform to express their points of views on EU issues. Its opinions are forwarded to the larger institutions - the Council, the Commission and the European Parliament. It thus has a key role to play in the Union's decision-making process.

ICT-enabled integrated communities of care

The journey of European health and welfare systems towards comprehensive digital support for well-being has sped up. Integrated communities of care are emerging that focus holistically on the needs of citizens and patients. They address not only clinical factors of illness, but also encompass social determinants and life style choices that impact health outcomes. Thus, a digital continuum for well-being and care is composed of smart cities and smart housing, secure and interoperable eHealth/mHealth infrastructures and a multitude of value added clinical and personal health services.
