Med-e-Tel 201014-16 April 2010, Luxembourg.
Med-e-Tel 2010 is the annual networking event and meeting place for Telemedicine and eHealth stakeholders from 50 countries around Europe and the world. In addition, now it is an official event of the International Society for Telemedicine & eHealth (ISfTeH), international federation of national Telemedicine/eHealth associations and the "NGO in Official Relations" with WHO.

The Med-e-Tel forum is the ideal opportunity to follow up on the latest developments and initiatives in Telemedicine and eHealth and to exchange ideas and experiences related to ICT applications in healthcare.

Med-e-Tel 2010 will be opened by Luxembourg Minister of Health Mars Di Bartolomeo, together with Yunkap Kwankam, Executive Director of the ISfTeH and feature an insider's look at the Rockefeller Foundation's eHealth and mHealth initiatives by Karl Brown, Associate Director of the Rockefeller Foundation.

The subsequent opening session, will explore the Global Telemedicine and eHealth initiatives and activities presented by the leading speakers:

  • Gérard Comyn, former Head of the ICT for Health unit at the European Commission and Vice-President of the French national telemedicine association CATEL, will provide an overview of the Commission's most recent activities and developments in telemedicine.
  • Peter Waegemann, Vice-President of the mHealth Initiative and Founder of the Medical Records Institute, will describe the current status of over 5,000 new mobile phone applications in healthcare and report on new communications patterns in healthcare as well as progress on communication-based disease management and consumer health developments.
  • Joseph Dal Molin, expert on open source software, will touch upon the possible benefits of open source solutions in healthcare and the transformation of healthcare through rapid, evidence driven software innovation, based on his experiences as President of Canadian e-cology corporation and Director of WorldVistA, a non-profit organization established to coordinate the development and dissemination of the open source version of VistA, the US Veterans Administration's integrated Electronic Health Record system.
  • Tim Ellis of the UK Department of Health will present the lessons and results to date of the government funded implementation of a large scale randomised control trial of telehealth and telecare (the so-called Whole System Demonstrators). The presentation will explore the challenges of generating robust evidence on the effectiveness of telehealth and telecare.
  • Günter Schreier of the Austrian Institute of Technology (AIT) will share his vision on the need for new models of care, due to an ageing population and the rise of people with chronic conditions. AIT is developing innovations in mobile technology, pervasive computing and ambient intelligence that will make the "Internet of Medical Things" possible and provide solutions to support care provision.
  • Brenda Wiederhold, Secretary General of the International Association for CyberTherapy, Training and Rehabilitation will provide insights into simulation and virtual reality technology that allows clinicians to treat patients more effectively and efficiently. The therapeutic benefits of using simulations are becoming increasingly well recognized and fully supported with results from controlled clinical trials. Because of technological advances, many simulations are now able to be delivered over the internet, as well as on hand-held portable devices. This allows for wider healthcare dissemination and personalization in the areas of prevention, training, education, therapy, and rehabilitation.
