EHTEL 2019 Symposium

In 2019, EHTEL’s annual event went local, stepping outside the "Brussels bubble" to take place for the first time in beautiful Barcelona.
 

The event hosted some 120 participants who gathered together contributing to the latest explorations of what’s coming up digitally in European health and care.

It raised key questions such as how can people and patients benefit from a fair health and care data economy.

It produced amazing insights into health data gathering, artificial intelligence, and machine learning, and put in the spotlight impressive innovations occurring in several European countries.
