ECHAlliance launch a new service & support package for Ecosystems 

The International Network of Permanent Connected Health Ecosystems is expanding at a fast pace and with that the accumulated knowledge and expertise of the alliance. To capture this and to take advantage of all opportunities and synergies the growing network generates, ECHAlliance has produced a service and support package.
The objective is to show, in a clear and transparent way, the services and support functions an Ecosystem automatically benefits from if the commitments are met. It also shows fully optional, fee-based services that go beyond the standard inclusive membership.
