COCIR attended the World of Health IT (WoHIT) Conference, organised by HIMSS and held in Nice, France on 2-4 April 2014. The event focused on shaping and developing the use, implementation, and evolution of eHealth, which has been deemed as one of Europe’s six “lead markets” for innovation.

At WoHIT, COCIR took part in the session: Funding and financial models for digital health? The ABC of European funding.

At WoHIT, COCIR also launched the 4th edition of its Opens external link in new windoweHealth Toolkit, focusing on how leveraging modern data-driven approaches can improve healthcare quality in a cost-effective manner. The COCIR toolkit highlights Big Data’s societal value and the contribution of eHealth to personalised medicine. At the same time, a special section of this toolkit concentrates on Vendor Neutral Archiving, presenting innovative trends and solutions that can help healthcare providers share and access medical images and other patient related documents in a seamless way across departments, providers and networks. Considering that regulatory and legal trends can potentially affect the delivery and operation of integrated solutions, we have also decided to provide an updated overview of regulatory trends in medical software and on industry Data Protection recommendations.
