The joint conferences present 7 tracks and more than 100 speakers from all over Europe and the United States. "This is an arena to discuss the amazing possibilities that lie within use of new technologies in the health care sector," says Bent Høie, Norwegian Minister of Health and Care Services. He will officially open the event November 15th.

Great debates and interesting workshops
ETC offers among other things, debates that will dig deeper into the challenges of validation of mHealth apps with EU commission's Terje Peetso, EU Parliament's Michal Boni and Mobile World's Joan Cornet. You can also meet Dr. Andrew Watson from UPMC Pittsburg and Microsoft's Elena Bonfiglioni in the debate Transformation of Healthcare. Through workshops, ETC will give you a better knowledge and understanding of patients' digital access to their health record "A service for all" and an introduction to Momentum: 18 critical success factors for deploying telehealth services in real life.

All-time best scientific track
The very best research projects in the telemedicine field from Europe is presented in its own track. "We had an overwhelming response to the call for paper to the scientific track, thus the selection of abstracts is the best update on the latest telemedicine research you will get this year. It is the second time we present a scientific track at the ETC, and the scientific track is a very valuable addition to the conference," says Stein Olav Skrøvseth, Centre Director at the Norwegian Centre for E-health Research, this year's host organization for the ETC.
