EU eHealth Week
EHTEL regularly contributes to the Annual EU eHealth Conferences, typically organised as eHealth Week, i.e. a co-location of the yearly EU eHealth Conference, hosted by the EU Presidency and the European Commission, with World of Health IT, hosted by HIMSS Europe. In particular, the independent EHTEL Leadership debates - affiliated to the annual eHealth Week - have been establised as a series of visionary talks welcoming - jointly with our members - leaders in health and welfare as distinguished guests.
On the evening of 9th June 2016, at the DeLaMar Theatre in Amsterdam, a stimulating Thought Leadership debate was facilitated by EHTEL with the support of Emminens, Roche and Intel. The session attracted more than 80 leaders from the fields of European health, care, data analytics, mobile health, pharmaceuticals and technology. Topics covered: Involving citizens and patients as active partners for knowledge sharing; making data sharing safe; giving control of data to individuals; and making health records more accessible, and analysing them to deliver actionable timely insights.

EHTEL, Assuta and MSD held a series of visionary talks - nicely supported by the skyline view of Riga. Our distinguished guests - leaders in mobile health and integrated healthcare - reflected on the Mobile Triangle of Health Information (patients, physicians and provider organisations). This triangle opens up fascinating 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. Panellists were moderated by Professor George Crooks OBE, EHTEL President and Medical Director, NHS24. [Point to image for the full report /check page bottom for eco-printing version]
Welcome at home in Riga - The EHTEL Lounge - idea, added value and meeting schedule: With this lounge, we offer EHTEL members and our partners in the eHealth domain a dedicated place to meet and share lessons learned within the growing EHTEL network. The EHTEL Lounge is located at the periphery of the exhibition area, at the same floor - you won't miss it. The EHTEL Secretariat looks forward to welcome you there - of course also outside the indicated meeting schedule.
EHTEL Thought Leadership Dinner Event "Leading Service Innovation in Health and Care": On the evening of 13th May 2014, at the Royal Olympic Hotel, a stimulating Thought Leadership debate was facilitated by EHTEL with the support of IBM and NHS24 (Scotland). The session attracted over 110 leaders in European health, care and technology.
The Evening Session "From Hindsight to Foresight - creating integrated communities of care" - co-organised by EHTEL and IBM at the recent eHealth Week featured a compelling Thought Leader Panel discussion at the recent eHealth Week in Dublin.
