With a lot of eHealth activities taking place in Brussels this week, it’s been an exciting time for COCIR.

The European eHealth Network, a voluntary mechanism comprised of the 28 EU member states and the European Commission, met on 18 November for the sixth time.

This week also saw the First Annual COCIR eHealth summit which brought together key stakeholders to share best practices and discuss eHealth’s clinical and financial benefits on 18-19 November.  Click Opens external link in new windowhere for press release. Industry, users and regional/national healthcare authorities came together to discuss how eHealth can benefit healthcare and over 100 participants attended.  We had a friendly working dinner focusing on integrated care and matchmaking networking opportunities provided extra connections between participants.

Meanwhile, on 19 November the European Parliament held an event chaired by Cristian Busoi MEP: “Promoting eHealth – efficiency, transparency and equal access to health services for patients”.  I was asked to present the industry point of view, profiling its trends, challenges and our expectations from EU Institutions, including the European Parliament.

Other important aspects of data protection have also been debated in many Brussels events during the whole week.  COCIR remains concerned about ongoing discussions at Council level on data protection regulation and is closely following this progress together with other industry associations and the coalition formed in healthcare with other key stakeholders.

COCIR will continue its efforts in eHealth-related activities and will keep you informed of progresses.
