eHealthWeek 2020 Croatia - Trusted Information: Transforming Health & Care for All

15 - 17 April 2020, Rovinj, Croatia.
In its capacity of hosting the upcoming Presidency of the Council of the European Union, the Croatian Ministry of Health is in preparations to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the renowned eHealth conference, Europe's largest high-level digital health event. Croatia has been seen for many years as an advanced European country in terms of digital health maturity and recently Croatia has received significant media attention by announcing its groundbreaking cross-border ePrescription capabilities.

2020 will also mark the first time for AHIMA (the American Health Information Management Association) as the official co-organiser of the high-level eHealth conference. AHIMA is a not-for-profit membership association representing more than 103,000 health information professionals around the world and brings over 90 years of knowledge and experience in Health Information and its vast network to the eHealth week Croatia conference.

President-elect of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leven, recognized the need for continued focus on e-health in her Political Guidelines for the European Commission 2019-2024, pointing out: "We need to make the most of the potential of e-health to provide high-quality healthcare and reduce inequalities. I want you to work on the creation of a European Health Data Space to promote health-data exchange and support research on new preventive strategies, as well as on treatments, medicines, medical devices and outcomes. As part of this, you should ensure citizens have control over their own personal data."

AHIMA CEO Wylecia Wiggs Harris, PhD, CAE, states: "I am thrilled that AHIMA has been selected to support the government of Croatia to host this important event. I look forward to sharing our knowledge and experience with the European member states and to building lasting partnerships with European stakeholders where we can learn and support each other in achieving our common goal of providing better health outcomes for all citizens."

The event will include the annual High-level Meeting on eHealth, gathering high level delegates from all European Member States. Furthermore, the conference is expected to gather over 1000 delegates from Europe and beyond. The conference will also include an exhibition and numerous networking opportunities.
