Beurs van Berlage, Amsterdam, The Netherlands

eHealth Week 2016 is organised by the Dutch Ministry of Health as part of the Dutch Presidency of the Council of the European Union, the European Commission and HIMSS Europe. This year’s educational programme will focus on three main themes: Empowering People, Trust & Standards and Social Innovation & Transition.

eHealth policies are changing. Until now, policies have mainly focused on institutions and IT systems: today, that focus is shifting and is now being placed on eHealth users. The people who are using eHealth are becoming increasingly involved in the discussion and being placed at the heart of eHealth policy-making.

The Netherlands is one of the most digitally mature countries in Europe and is home to one of the four HIMSS EMRAM Stage 7 hospitals in Europe as well as having eight Stage 6 hospitals: it is an ideal place for the European eHealth Community to come together!

Smartcare Final Conference

Joining up ICT and service processes for quality integrated care in Europe

The final conference of SmartCare will take place on 6 July 2016 in Trieste, Italy.
Join us to learn, share and discuss about the latest trends regarding ICT-supported integrated care in Europe.

For more than three years, 23 regions and a total of 42 partner organisations have worked towards making ICT-supported integrated care a reality…in Europe and elsewhere. Now, towards the end of our EU-funded project and at a point in time where key decisions about the mainstreaming of our innovative services are being taken, the time has come to share the results of our work and to discuss them in the wider context of care integration.

To do so, we invite you to join our final conference!

The conference is organised by our coordinating deployment site Friuli Venezia Giulia. Held in beautiful Trieste, the conference will focus on:

The results of the evaluation of the SmartCare services, piloted in nine European regions
The lessons learned by the people developing, implemeting and operating the services in the ground
The socio-economic and business aspects of up-scaling integrated care
Our Guidelines for the implementation of integrated e-care services
The conference will also feature interim results of two further ongoing pilot projects on integrated care: BeyondSilos and CareWell.
