The speakers will share their experience on successful implementations, new trends and challenges in the eHealth sector.

“Latest research indicates that 29 percent of EU citizens will be over 65 years old in 2050. And we have been battling the deepest financial crisis in decades. 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

For the first time ever, eHealth Week will feature symposia on innovation-rich subjects such as Ambient Assisted Living; European Innovation Partnerships and a Leaders in Health IT (LHIT) symposia for hospital IT Directors.

eHealth Week 2011 is co-organised by the Hungarian Presidency of the Council of the European Union, the European Commission (EC) and HIMSS Europe (Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society Europe).

eHealth Week 2011 will bring together key stakeholders from Europe’s healthcare, from the policy makers, to providers, insurances, research facilities, vendors as well as patient associations. It will host the eHealth Government Initiative, a formal body of healthcare state secretaries aimed at aligning national eHealth systems in Europe.
