Canadian European Trade Assembly for Digital Health
4-5 June 2018
Ottawa, Canada 
Join us in Ottawa, Canada on June 4-5 2018 for the Canadian European Trade Assembly for Digital Health.  Impetus for the meeting is the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement – the recently ratified free-trade agreement between Canada, the European Union and its member states. As it goes into force this year, CETA will eliminate 98% of the tariffs between Canada and the EU.
The Ottawa conference will explore how free trade can accelerate the transnational exchange of information, products and services between European and Canadian digital healthcare organizations. 
Our goal is to provide a neutral platform to encourage collaboration between government, academic medicine and industry to find solutions to complex issues around digital interoperability standards, data governance, 2nd use of health-data and digital transformation & change management.

Connected Health Conference 
“Balancing the Technology and the Human element"
17-19 October 2018
Boston, USA
The Connected Health Conference 2018 (CHC18) is one of the major US-based events around Digital health, attracting every year over 2,500 delegates from across the world: companies, health professionals and scientists, policy-makers, healthcare providers, insurers, investors, etc.
In 2018, the sessions will focus on the balance between the Technology and the Human element. In an era when digital technologies enable individuals to track health statistics such as daily activity and vital signs, and new applications of artificial intelligence, social robots and vocal biomarkers are creating new opportunities for health, we are now facing the next great challenge: integrating these technologies in healthcare delivery, wellness and daily living.
ECHAlliance will organise a 1-day pre-event conference on the 17th of October (same venue), on the development of The Digital Health Society (DHS) movement and its moonshot mission in Europe for 100 million Digitally Connected EU Citizens by 2027. It will be the opportunity to discuss the actions enabling this ambitious objective, but also similar and parallel initiatives in USA, Canada, China and other parts of the world.
