Digital health implementation: It’s a collaborative business
This 2023 EHTEL Thought Leader Symposium offered attendees lots of ideas for how to handle their own implementation challenges. It presented the audience with stories about how a wide variety of different players have been successful when implementing digital health. The fields of application were wide. Geographically, they ranged from the local/regional, to national, European, and international. Institutionally, they covered community and organisational contexts as well as clinical, medical, and medicinal settings. Topic-wise, the coverage of applications that spanned personal health records, ePrescribing, and artificial intelligence (AI). The day culminated with a focus on value-based healthcare. Lots of attention was paid to how these challenges have all been met through collaborative ventures.
In 2023, the EHTEL Symposium was organised in the frame of the Digital Health and Data Week: the result of a collaboration between EHTEL, I~HD, and the UNICOM project consortium. The three partnered together to work on digital health solutions and data that result in the provision of real value for care and research. All three days of the week included complementary topics: their content was very synergistic. Social and networking events enabled plenty of mutual discussion and dialogue.
At EHTEL’s 2023 Thought Leaders’ Symposium, there were:
- Eight sessions as well as an opening address and closing session
- Two sponsors: the Scottish Government, Sorsix.
- Two supporting EU co-financed projects: DigitalHealthUptake, UNICOM.
- 26 speakers.
- 85 attendees, and more online.

The Symposium made available plenty of knowledgeable, high-level attendees and speakers with lots of background in implementing digital health in a range of settings. People were keen to share their experiences how to collaborate and not just why to collaborate. This made for lots of discussions in order to exchange experiences and some very rewarding networking.
