The Global Connector for Digital Health


The European Connected Health Alliance (ECHAlliance) is the Global Connector for Digital Health, facilitating multi-stakeholder connections around ecosystems, driving sustainable change and disruption in the delivery of health and social care.

Our global network of Digital Health Alliances connects 78 countries and 4.4 billion people (Europe, USA, Canada, China, Africa, Asia, the Caribbean and Americas and the Pacific).

Our community of over 16,500 experts – including government, health & social care providers, leading companies and start-ups, researchers, insurances, patients groups and citizens, and the investment community connect through ecosystem meetings (120 per year) and international events and our online platform.

The Digital Health Observatory (DHO) and The Digital Health Society (DHS) movement facilitate and promote the transfer of knowledge, experiences and best practices creating a community of knowledge in Digital Health globally.

Our Working Groups provide a platform for stakeholders, responsible for a given topic area, to meet, promote and advance their work across the ecosystem network, therefore maximising knowledge sharing and best practice.

We are a not-for-profit organisation, operating as a Community Interest Company (CIC) registered in the UK in Belfast; and a Company Limited by Guarantee in Dublin, Ireland.
