The EHTEL 2018 Symposium takes place next week from 3-5 December 2018 in Brussels.

Under the topic of ‘Empowered Partners in Health through User-Driven Digitisation’, speakers and participants will engage in dialogue and share insights into how user-driven digitisation is delivering benefits to empower all stakeholders in health, including:

  • Consumers and Patients: With smart tools enabling health promotion and prevention and linking to information – including health records – and resources in health and social care;
  • Health care managers and providers: For next-generation care planning, integrating individual patient data and big data using a population health approach;
  • The Health Workforce: So that their jobs gain from carefully designed and adjusted digital tools, and they are trained to use their digital skills to create meaningful documentation and workflows.

The symposium will cover the three priority pillars set out by the European Commission in its recent Communication – patient access, personalised medicine, and digital interaction. It will also explore and debate how artificial intelligence and machine learning systems might contribute to these policies.
