Healthcare systems across Europe are facing similar challenges such as rising costs, increasing multi-morbidity, changing demographics and growing resource gaps (i.e. urban vs. rural, digital divide). Technology-enabled solutions are emerging, offering new ways of receiving and providing healthcare services: stakeholders within national and regional healthcare ecosystems are progressively adjusting the way they interact with each other as well as with patients and the public. Such adjustments come together with issues related to health data management, transparency, patients’ trust, telemedicine deployment or up/re-skilling healthcare professionals.
The ESPON conference on “The Future of e-Health: evidence-based policy making in the era of data-driven healthcare” aims at addressing such challenges together with representatives of European institutions, policy-makers and relevant stakeholders from the national and regional healthcare ecosystems. Taking place in one of the leading innovation ecosystems in terms of e-Health, the event will present the latest ESPON research results on the topic and investigate the role e-health is playing in regional development.
