With a main programme based on the parallel themes of Trust and Standards, Social innovation and Transition and Empowering People, as ever eHealth week offered a very wide range of presentations. For EHFF, as well as presenting on ‘the paradigm shift’ on Day 1, a valuable breakout event was the Day 2 morning event ‘Coalition of the willing’ from ECHAlliance with a complementing afternoon presentation ‘READi for health’ which showcased the FP7 four region project on promoting innovation of eHealth (see: http://www.readiforhealth.eu ). Later that day EHFF attended an EHTEL Thought Leaders debate on ‘More data, better care?’ with panellists Bas van der Dungen (NL MoH), Lars Kalfhaus (Roche), Claire Medd (Intel), and Rhidian Hurle (CCIO, Wales); chaired by Petra Wilson.
Among other presentations that caught our eye was one on Self supported care from Liverpool, UK, a presentation on merging the EPR and PHR from Catalunya and one on tackling poor health literacy using eHealth tools.
There was plenty of opportunity for networking! More than half of the stakeholder representatives that attended the RBS/EHFF event in Berlin in February met together during the course of the eHealth week meeting.
