The eStandards consortium is pleased to announce the eStandards Final Conference.
This two-day event will take place in Brussels hosted by CEN TC251 at  the CEN-CENELEC premises, Avenue Marnix 17, on June 26-27, 2017.

You are invited to think of a global eHealth ecosystem where we all enjoy timely safe and informed health anytime anywhere and interoperability assets fuel creativity, entrepreneurship and innovation.

In this eStandards conference, you will be part of in-depth discussions on the future of eHealth Standards that really impact the digital future of health.

We will present the core elements of the final eStandards roadmap and discuss the way to create a new generation of eHealth standards that nurture Trust and Flow, strengthen Europe’s voice, and enable co-creation in interoperability with trusted dialogs on health, costs, and plans to meet great expectations for large-scale eHealth deployment.

eStandards that help move forward with large-scale eHealth deployment in Europe, stepping forward from current best practices and employing the tools of the digital age will be discussed in four focus areas:

(e) patient summaries for emergency and unplanned care

(b) identification of medicines

(c) chronic disease management

(d) european reference networks for rare diseases

Stay tuned!
