The core members of the Innovation Initiative Task Force are innovation agencies. All EHTEL’s Members are invited to join the meetings. Other interested organisations can apply to participate.
The next topic the Task Force will focus on is digital therapeutics and the role it can play in care in the hospital and at home. This topic is closely related to Artificial Intelligence as a means to optimise digitalisation processes in healthcare. The Task Force has developed a work programme that includes a series of webinars. The webinars’ objective will be to exchange practical experience in this domain.
EHTEL has a longstanding track record of engaging in meaningful services, enabled through adoption methodologies, in the domain of digital health. To do this, EHTEL has fostered stakeholder dialogue – both formally and informally – with many other groups. The association has enabled an active dialogue with European policymakers, projects, initiatives and with fellow stakeholder organisations in the field. Examples of EHTEL’s work include activities in the JAseHN Joint Action, on EHTEL's Innovation Initiative, and in projects like Digital Health Uptake, SCIROCCO Exchange, SCIROCCO, Momentum, and vCare.
