Designed for and by the healthcare IT community in the European region, WoHIT08 focused on shaping and developing the use, implementation, and evolution of this pillar of the new European marketplace.
Furthermore, at the World of Health IT 2008 edition, the European Commission, HIMSS Europe, the Ministry of Health and Consumption of Spain, and the Government of Catalonia announced that the next World of Health IT conference and exhibition would be held in conjunction with the European Union’s annual High Level e-Health Ministerial Conference in Barcelona on March 15-18, 2010.
The joint event, which coincides with Spain’s presidency of the EU in the first half of 2010 will join together the stakeholders who will together advance the development of e-Health in Europe. “We believe that there is a benefit in bringing together the constituency of this event with that of the eHealth Ministerial event. This idea is shared by all the parties involved in the organisation of both events, and I have the pleasure to invite you to a joint event that will take place in March of 2010 in Barcelona,” commented Viviane Reding, European Commissioner for Information Society and Media.
