The European Connected Health Alliance (ECHAlliance) is delighted to partner with the Personal Connected Health Alliance (PCHA) around the Connected Health Conference (CHC) 2017 (read full article here). Jointly with the Canadian Integrated Health Alliance (CIHA), ECHAlliance has designed a pre-conference event on 25th of October.

The Digital Health Society: Europe meets North America Workshop will be held the 25 October in Boston as part of the Connected Health Conference (CHC17), the most anticipated event in connected health. 


The Digital Health Society: Europe meets North America Workshop

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.

In 2017, European Presidency is assumed by Estonia, one of the most digitized country in the world. The Ministry of Social Affairs of Estonia and the ECHAlliance have developed a movement called “The Digital Health Society”, bringing together policy-makers, large companies, start-ups, healthcare providers and professionals, citizens groups, researchers, insurers… to progress the digitization of healthcare systems and foster the free flow of health data across Europe. 

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.


Connected Health Conference (CHC17)

The 2017 Connected Health Conference (CHC17) is the most anticipated event in connected health, bringing together the industry’s two leading events and top thought leaders for three days of inspirational, provocative and forward-thinking discussion.

CHC17 is simply the most valuable conference in the industry (whether you refer to the industry as connected health, healthtech, digital health, ehealth, mhealth, telehealth, telemedicine, or healthit). 

Combining the highly respected Partners Connected Health Symposium with PCHAlliance's Connected Health Conference, the largest global platform for digital and connected health dealmaking, the newly designed 2017 Connected Health Conference will convene an unmatched audience of 2000+ frontline healthcare providers and forward-thinking companies.
