Days of eHealth – Data spaces and digital transformation in healthcare

30th August 2021 @ 08:00 3rd September 2021 @ 17:00

We are looking forward to Bleddyn Rees session “Opening of Days of e-Health and Key Notes” on Monday 30th August at 9:00hrs.

The emphasis will be on the European Health Data Space, exchange of experience and good practice examples from Slovenia and other countries that are leaders in healthcare digitalisation.

Portugal and Germany, which together with Slovenia are part of the “EU Presidency Trio”, will present their experience and priorities of the Presidency, as well as good practice examples from their countries. Guests from Finland will explain why they are leaders in the secondary use of data and how they encourage healthcare employees in quality data collection. Israel will present the implementation of the national digital health strategy and share their “lessons learned”. Guests from Spain will present their plans to create a regional ecosystem of IT solutions in Catalonia as well as a unified patient record. The discussion on the role of digital literacy in healthcare, as an important competence of healthcare professionals as well as patients, will conclude the eHealth week.

Days of eHealth are moderated by Tjaša Zajc, Faces of Digital Health.
