2nd Joint European Hospital Conference

After the success of last year’s first Joint European Hospital Conference, EAHM is again joining forces with the European Hospital and Healthcare Federation (HOPE) and Association of European Hospital Physicians (AEMH) to hold a second conference.


The next Joint European Hospital Conference will take place on Friday November 22nd 2013 in Düsseldorf (Germany) as part of the 36th Deutsche Krankenhaustag at Medica 2013.


Divided into two parts, the morning session follows up on last year’s conference with presentations and discussions on the European Directive on Patients’ Rights while the afternoon will focus on innovation access in Europe’s hospitals.


Implementing the EU Directive on Patients’ Rights

Andrzej Rys, Director of Health Systems and Products at the European Commission will present on the conditions for the implementation of the Directive. Following this, presenters from Sweden, Hungary and Spain will discuss their experiences in establishing the national contact points stipulated in the Directive.


Xavier Brenez, CEO of the National Federation of Independent Health Insurance Funds, will examine how national healthcare systems can prepare for implementation and the session will close with a discussion on how the European reference networks fit the national structures. Representatives from Germany, Poland and Portugal will share the situation in their respective countries.


Innovation Access in Europe’s Hospitals

The afternoon session turns to innovation, a key topic in the healthcare sector. To kick things off Serge Bernasconi, CEO of the European Medical Technology Industry Association (Eucomed), will present an overview of the benefits of innovative medical procedures and products in Europe and the key decisions to be made.


Moving on to innovation in practice, representatives from the UK, France and Italy will highlight the decisions and benefits of innovation in healthcare. This will be followed by a panel discussion.


Approximately 150 – 170 top decision makers from Europe’s hospitals are expected to attend. All presentations will be translated simultaneously into English, French and German.


Congress Time: 10.00 h – 16.00 h


Attendees will have a chance to network over lunch and also during the evening reception in Dusseldorf.
