eHealth Innovation Workshop

12 May 2011, 12:00 - 17:30 hrs
Budapest, eHealth Week, WoHIT conference

Workshop summary

Europe needs more person-centred health services. eHealth Innovation project attempts to provide insight and guidelines on how to innovate using eHealth to overcome challenges such as

  • motivation and support of people in caring for their own health status
  • engagement and support of health professionals, service providers and other stakeholders
  • collection and interpretation of evidence and development of business cases
  • setting up and sustaining integrated care infrastructures and innovative ICT solutions

The workshop focused on innovative ICT-based service solutions for chronic disease management for an ageing population. Good practice cases (a chronic care service in the Netherlands; successful patient guidance systems; patient access to their data) are analysed in their national contexts.

Successful innovation strategies require co-operation among clinician, industry, insurer, patient, and clear business perspectives. Priority challenges that need to be addressed will be identified.
