Celebrating our Brussels Office this month!

After our 2nd very successful Opens external link in new windoweHealth Summit which took place in January in Brussels, we were present earlier this month at ECR 2016 and actively taking part to the Opens external link in new windowEuroSafe Imaging Initiative created 3 years ago and actively participated in sessions to share the industry experience. We launched our latest Opens external link in new windowposter raising awareness on the delay of innovative medical imaging technologies in reaching healthcare professionals and patients, and released our findings, revealing that a quarter of the European CT installed base cannot be upgraded with the most important dose saving technology advances and should be considered for replacement.

Also at the International Level, we were active through Opens external link in new windowDITTA with a big industry delegation at the 9th IMDRF meetings that just concluded in Brazilia end of last week. We contributed to IMDRF in organising a Workshop on Medical Software, participated in the Management Committee and delivered the Industry views during the Stakeholder Forum.

This year we will also celebrate our 10th anniversary of the COCIR Office in Brussels at the occasion of our forthcoming Annual General Assembly.

Our focus on Integrated Care will continue through a Call for Action that will be released very soon and for which our privileged partners will be on board joining forces. In addition we will also be present on the eHealth front at the forthcoming Opens external link in new windowconhIT congress, where we will host the Opens external link in new windowsession “United towards Integrated Care” on the 19 April. Speakers will exchange their views on the building blocks of integrated care, aiming at accelerating the effective deployment of integrated care models.

In addition, COCIR, as part of Opens external link in new windowmembers of the Programme Advisory Committee will be active during the Opens external link in new windoweHealth Week in Amsterdam.

Keep following COCIR on this Website and on Social Media for the latest news on our upcoming activities.
