Come and Experience the Future of eHealth & Mobile Health Technology

eHealth Week 201213 - 15 May 2013, Dublin, Ireland.
In May at the Convention Centre Dublin, global decision makers from European public and private healthcare will join High Level European Ministers and EU Commissioners along with over 2,500 international delegates and 100 exhibitors to attend eHealth Week, co-organised by the European Commission, the Irish Presidency of the Council of the European Union and HIMSS Europe. This year's event will focus on delivering innovation and well-being, focusing on mHealth, cross border co-operation and empowering patients and staff through the use of ePortals.

eHealth Week provides an opportunity to see and showcase the best in International eHealth practices featuring a range of expert sessions.

Irish Department Of Health
The Irish Department of Health will host several Presidency events attended by EU Commissioners and officials, Ministers of Health and government officials from Member States, Accession, Candidate and EFTA countries. As part of the High Level Conference a working lunch will be held at Dublin Castle. Department of Health tracks, open to all eHealth Week attendees, will feature discussion on the high economic and societal value of eHealth, reforming health systems, business modelling in the "ecosystem", empowering patients, legal issues and education and skills to support eHealth deployment and implementation.

WoHIT Sessions
Led by keynote speaker Theresa Cullen, Director, Health Informatics at Veterans Health, the WoHIT (World of Health IT) track aims to empower patients while giving clinical staff the tools they need to do their jobs more quickly and efficiently. The range of sessions will include discussions on mHealth, hospital management, educational portals to better empower patients and help to reduce the number of occupied beds within hospitals.

European Innovation Partnership
The EIP track at eHealth Week will present an overview of the Action Plans of the EIP Groups and their links to ICT. The track will include sessions on the evidence around impact from innovative services for Active and Healthy Ageing as well as potential ways of financing their deployment.

EU/US Marketplace
Following the hugely successful Marketplace hosted in the Massachusetts State House, Boston last October, the ECHAlliance are working with the Irish EU Presidency, the US Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) and DG Connect (European Commission) to bring the Marketplace to Dublin as part of the eHealth Week. The Marketplace will be open to all attendees and will provide real opportunities for doing business through the speakers corner, the device demo area, networking and the buzz of the Matchmaking meetings.

mHealth Symposium
Following the overwhelming success of last year's first mHealth Symposium at eHealth Week, healthcare professionals, mHealth application developers and industry stakeholders will once again gather to establish best practices and advance the use of mobile applications and services in healthcare. The sessions will cover a range of subjects including disease management, patient access and the future of connectivity.
