During eHealth Week, speakers and delegates will explore the changing ways in which personal health data is created, stored, shared and used. Advances in bioinformatics support a paradigm shift towards tailor-made prevention and treatment strategies both for individuals and population groups. Opportunities are growing for ICT to support patient-centred health services and the involvement of patients in their own care, including access to personal health data, sharing of data, and mHealth applications.

EHTEL is a partner of eHealth Week and will e.g. be present at booth #300 on the exhibition floor, i.e. the EU Projects Pavilion hosting the Speakers' corner.

To enable best networking with EHTEL and its strategic EU projects, refer to our schedule on where and when to learn more.

As a good preparation, i.e, to be up-to-date on most recent advances on Digital Health like the EC Blueprint on Healthcare Transformation, we invite you to rehearse the presentations of the EHTEL 2017 Symposium in March.
