Leading eHealth Event in Europe to Take Place in Amsterdam

eHealth Week 20168 - 10 June 2016, Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
eHealth Week, the leading eHealth event of Europe, will take place in Amsterdam on 8 - 10 June 2016. This was announced in Amsterdam during the Info Day about the eHealth Week. The event is organised by the Dutch Ministry of Health, the European Commission and HIMSS Europe. eHealth Week is an official part of the Presidency of the Netherlands in the Council of the European Union which will take place from 1 January until 30 June 2016. During eHealth Week 2016, over 2,000 international experts in IT and healthcare, public institutions, professional and patient organisations are being expected.

"eHealth can improve outcomes for patients"
Director Paul Timmers, Digital Society, Trust and Security, DG Connect, European Commission, stated during the meeting: "Digital solutions can empower citizens to manage their health, while health and care systems can improve their efficiency and cope with the increasing demand from an ageing population. eHealth can not only save time and costs, using resources more efficiently and avoiding duplication, but also improve outcomes for patients."

The latest eHealth developments will be discussed during the eHealth Week. Presentations will be delivered by high level speakers through workshops, sessions and interactive panel discussions. eHealth Week will bring together government and ministerial delegations as well as the private sector, thus encouraging productive discussions around how these two areas complement each other and what lessons can be learned.

Christina Roosen, Vice-President at HIMSS Europe added: "We are particularly excited to be announcing next year's host country as The Netherlands as one of the most digitally mature countries in the EU. It is home to one of the three HIMSS EMRAM Stage 7 hospitals in Europe as well as having eight Stage 6 hospitals: it is an ideal place for the European eHealth Community to come together. We hope to gather eHealth leaders from every region in Europe to encourage knowledge sharing so we can strive towards our common goal: to advance healthcare through information technology."
