eHealthweek - the biggest yearly pan-European eHealth event
Major stakeholders, such as Government decision makers, Industry leaders, Hospital Chief Information Officers, Practitioners and Patient Groups from across Europe will participate in this event. Panel discussions, debates, high level presentations and actual case studies will highlight the eHealth contribution to healthcare delivery. The speakers will share their experience on successful implementations, new trends and challenges in the eHealth sector.

The grand theme of our time is the need to do more with less. eHealth is one of the best ways to face these challenges,” says Neelie Kroes, Vice-President of the European Commission and its Commissioner for Digital Agenda
