COCIR eHealth Summit
24 November 2015 - 25 November 2015
COCIR, the European Trade Association representing the medical imaging, health ICT and electromedical industries, is organising for the second year its annual eHealth Summit, which will take place on 24 and 25 November at the International Press Center, Residence Palace, in Brussels.
Healthcare systems are suffering from high costs and high fragmentation, often resulting in poor medical outcomes and unjustified clinical variability in medical practices and decision making across the care providers. When looked at holistically, healthcare systems are declared “unsustainable”.
The aim of the Summit is to provide key EU and national policy makers and health stakeholders with a unique opportunity to discuss solutions on how to overcome these challenges and to achieve tangible outcomes that will provide a platform for action.
The first day, organised in partnership with HOPE, will focus on the European perspective and the role of Member States and Regions. HOPE Chief Executive Pascal Garel will participate to the panel debate dedicated to “Mainstreaming innovation across health and care systems for successful scaling up of innovation”. The second day will represent the opportunity to discuss these issues from an international perspective and will feature the participation of international organisations such as WHO and the OECD.
