logo Collaborating for Digital Health and Care in Europe

<   back

Ageing populations, increasing prevalence of cardio-metabolic conditions, workforce shortages and burnouts, rising healthcare costs, unsustainable financing systems, health inequities: health systems around the world are facing a perfect storm. We need to challenge and radically innovate the way we promote health and deliver care.

In 2024 EHTEL is a Steering Committee Partner: which means EHTEL is co-organising three sessions in the festival.

The three sessions organised by EHTEL, in partnership with EU projects:

  • "Scale-up toolkit: lessons from digital health innovators"

21 May 2024 |13:30 - 17:00, a pre-conference session, with Digital Health Uptake

Digital Health Uptake organises this practical session to engage with digital health stakeholders and offers the Radar, a good practice repository, and resources to innovators willing to accelerate digital health implementation in Europe. A great opportunity for digital health startups and enterprises looking to scale their operations, healthcare professionals seeking innovative digital health solutions, investors and policymakers interested in the latest trends and success stories, to meet and network with champions across the digital health ecosystem.



  • "EHDS - Toward Data-Driven Health Systems for Prevention, Precision and Equity"

 22 May 2024 | 9:00-10:15, a plenary session featuring xShare

The real success of the European Health Data Space (EHDS) will lie in the capacity to develop and connect primary and secondary use data so that health data in Europe can fuel an unlimited number of use cases. This session explores the transformative potential of the EHDS - emphasizing data-driven strategies for prevention, precision, and equity – and allows participants to apprehend the concept of the EHDS in a very concrete and operational way

  • "Interoperability - Beyond Technology,  Towards People and Systems Talking to Each Other"

22 May 2024 | 11:00-12:15, a session featuring UNICOM

A testament to the power of collective will and cooperation in overcoming interoperability challenges, this session will explore how we foster the willingness of all stakeholders to engage in this collaborative journey. We will look at various incentives and strategies to motivate stakeholders - from policy makers to healthcare providers and patients - ensuring that everyone is committed to the shared goal of seamless, efficient, and patient-centered healthcare delivery.

Interoperability session


The shared EHTEL and Radical Health Festival principles are clear:

  • Digital transformation is no longer about technology, it’s about people.
  • Our objective is no longer just about accelerating innovation, it’s also about promoting adoption at scale.
  • We need to start preaching outside the usual choir of digital health enthusiasts to engage patients, clinicians and end-users, and answer their question ‘’what’s in it for me?’’
  • Successful digital transformation journeys are always co-created.
  • Global collaboration and exchange of best practices is the only way forward.


The Festival Concept 2024 

Deploying Prevention and Precision at Scale

The future of healthcare lies at the intersection of prevention and precision. This means identifying and addressing risk factors before they develop into major health issues, delivering more personalised and efficient care, achieving better outcomes overall, optimising resource allocation, and improving the sustainability of health systems. Deploying prevention and precision at scale represents a paradigm shift, which requires vision, leadership, change management, and the need to be radical.
