Advancing eHealth in Europe: Innovation Development Strategies to Maximise Uptake and Delivery
30th October 2013, Brussels

Following two successful policy discussions at Advancing eHealth in Europe, 2011 and 2012, the International Centre for Parliamentary Studies presents a further meeting aimed at moving the agenda forward.

Advancing eHealth in Europe 2013 will bring together policy makers, healthcare professionals and leading innovators in the design of technology, to improve the uptake and delivery of eHealth systems across Europe. We will examine successful and innovative strategies, the prospects for scaling those upwards and outwards, and the conditions necessary to develop and deploy new eHealth delivery policies.

Through presentations by leading eHealth delivery units, extensive discussions and networking with health policy makers and healthcare professionals, delegates will draw upon the existing European policy framework and work together to examine potential crossovers and expansions in emerging best practices.
