The Digital Health Society: Europe Meets North America



Date: Wednesday, October 25, 2017
Time: 8:30 am – 5:00 pm
Location: Seaport World Trade Center
Fee: $200

The European Connected Health Alliance (ECHAlliance) is delighted to partner with the Personal Connected Health Alliance (PCHA) around the Connected Health Conference (CHC) 2017. Jointly with the Canadian Integrated Health Alliance (CIHA), ECHAlliance has designed a pre-conference event, “The Digital Health Society: Europe meets North America”, which will be held the 25th October in Boston as part of the Connected Health Conference (CHC17), the most anticipated event in connected health. 

Europe, USA and Canada are facing the same challenges regarding the need for their healthcare systems to change and to adapt to the Digital Society: bringing services better designed for the users, more data-driven processes and decisions, more preventive rather than curative, managing better the complexity of a multi-stakeholders system, and avoiding perverse effects of the traditional fee-for-services model, setting-up outcomes-based models.
This 1-day workshop is the opportunity for stakeholders from USA, Canada and Europe to exchange views and strategies, but also to dialog about specific challenges such as interoperability standards, data-governance, market access, and discover partnerships and business opportunities from both side of the Atlantic.
