Digitalisation and Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) for health and wellbeing are crucial today for providing high-quality care to each European citizen. The European Commission also made its objectives clear in the eHealth Action Plan, which are expected to be achieved by 2020. The common goal is to make healthcare more efficient at a lower cost. In this respect, we find it important to discuss trends and challenges that this vital sector is facing today, especially in the countries of Central and Eastern Europe. The first panel discussion will be dedicated to public policies, laws, and general public knowledge about eHealth, while the second one will focus on the implementation of new methodologies, applications, and approaches that could positively influence patient care and everyday life.
The following questions will be discussed during the conference:
- How do policymakers see the eHealth phenomenon in the V4 countries?
- Big Data and Health management – where are the limits?
- How do we standardise data innovation in healthcare?
- What is the key to achieving personalised and sustainable population health management?
