Healthcare systems are set for drastic changes

Our healthcare systems are suffering from high costs and high fragmentation – often resulting in poor medical outcomes and unjustified clinical variability in medical practices and decision making across the care providers. When looked at holistically, healthcare systems are declared “unsustainable”.

This second annual eHealth Summit aims to provide key EU and national policy-makers and health stakeholders with a unique opportunity to discuss solutions on how to overcome these challenges and to achieve tangible outcomes that will provide a platform for action.

This Summit will provide you with the following opportunities:

  • Discuss solutions and required policy actions with high-level representatives of the EU and national institutions, industry and the stakeholder community

  • Be part of an unique outcome driven multi-stakeholder dialogue on overcoming the barriers to better integrated care

  • Learn more about the role of eHealth in integrated care models

  • Find out about best practices in Regions and Member States

Why should you Attend?

This COCIR 2nd eHealth Summit offers the unique opportunity to:

  • Meet all key stakeholders (hospital, primary, community, social care, patients ) to understand population needs and deliver integrated care for those who would benefit most.

  • Discuss required paradigm shift in policy actions and current barriers for an effective and scalable deployment of Integrated Care.

  • Kick off mutually beneficial dialogues with the Health ICT industry and understand how eHealth can enable care collaboration and help deploy shared care workflows, disease management and population health platforms.

  • Build a bridge between European and national, regional and local decision-makers.

  • Learn more from best practices in Regions and Member States.
