“THE International E-Health, Telemedicine and Health ICT Forum for Education, Networking and Business”

Med-e-Tel focuses on e-health and telemedicine applications and a wide range of other medical ICT applications and on the convergence of information and communication technology with medical applications, which lead to higher quality of care, cost reductions, workflow efficiency, and widespread availability of healthcare services.


The three key words of this year’s congress were education, networking and business. Attendees from across the globe had the chance to listen to over 150 presentations and workshops and network with healthcare and industry stakeholders to exchange ideas. It was an opportunity to see the solutions and technology at work in the expo area, set up one-to-one meetings with industry leaders and participate in demonstrations to see the potential behind telemedicine and e-health tools.


The conference programme featured presentations of successful business cases, research activities, pilot projects, practical experiences from health and social care providers, and panel discussions, offering both local and international perspectives on e-health and telemedicine opportunities and experiences. The opening session included presentations on topics such as testing the effectiveness of telehealth and telecare at scale, pervasive healthcare via the Internet of medical things and international developments and initiatives.


There were also thematic sessions throughout the three-day event allowing attendees to chose the topics most important to them. Subjects of these sessions included telenursing, chronic disease management, cybertherapy/telerehabilitation and how to implement e-health solutions. Medical specialists also had the opportunity benefit from up to 18 hours of CME credits.
