More details coming from the organises in the next few months, with registration starting in December ’16. Hope to see you there!

Organised by the Maltese Ministry of Health as part of their Presidency of the Council of the European Union, the European Commission, and HIMSS Europe,  eHealth Week 2017 is organised in partnership with the World Health Organization, Regional Office for Europe (WHO/Europe).  Topics will include“Cross-border exchange of personal health data: from policy to practice” and “European Reference Networks: how digital health helps”.

The two primary themes addressed during eHealth Week are:

  • Giving European citizens access to their personal health data
  • Improving public health through better use of clinic

I think it’s fair to say that eHealth Week 2016 in Amsterdam was a great success. See my post on the HIMSS Europe blog on how much I enjoyed meeting and learning.

eHealth Week 2016 is organised by the Dutch Ministry of Health, the Dutch Presidency of the Council of the European Union, the European Commission and HIMSS Europe. This year’s educational programme will focus on three main themes: Empowering People, Trust & Standards and Innovation & Transition.

The week promises to be a worthy event and I am grateful to have been given the opportunity to attend, learn and discuss with the varied audience. It would be great to meet up, so please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
