What does an ecosystem do?

Our International Digital Health Ecosystems bring together a community of stakeholders, interested in developing a joint health agenda, aiming to address and find common solutions to challenges facing that specific region. Most importantly they look to break down silos, transform healthcare delivery and crucially create economic growth.

Patient and citizens first: Opportunities for all

It is vital to us that patients are at the centre of  all activity within our multi-stakeholder International Digital Health Ecosystem concept. Stakeholders then work with the patient, together, to develop health and social care.

Basic Ecosystem Principles:

All of our Ecosystems offer national and regional differences.  The crucial thing is that they all have the same basic principles:

  • Based on a geographic area
  • Multi-sector stakeholders gathering
  • Accessible to all (no barriers/ fee) 
  • Permanent, with regular gatherings
  • Light governance via working group
  • Shared strategy & action plan
  • Lead with a need
  • Member of an International network
  • Patients/ Citizens at the centre

ECHAlliance facilitates Global multi-stakeholder connections around ecosystems (Europe, North America, China, Africa and beyond), driving sustainable change and disruption in the delivery of health and social care
