eHealth and more …..

Our new year 2016 begun with an exciting start ! The second annual Opens external link in new windoweHealth Summit took place in Brussels on 27-28 January was well attended and hosted high level representatives from European Institutions, several Member States, national and regional policy-makers, scientific societies and healthcare professionals, civil society and prestigious international organizations.
Despite some cancellations (due to the rescheduled dates after the security alert in Brussels), the attendance was still very strong and reached over 100 delegates.
After only two editions, our Summit has established itself as an unmissable event in the eHealth Calendar, and represents a high profile platform for all stakeholders to share insights. This year the theme was focusing on Integrated Care and collectively we had great discussions on how to overcome the challenges we are facing as well as exchanging concrete experiences. 
During the event, we launched a new partnership on mHealth with VOKA. Read more Opens external link in new windowhere.

In 2016, we will continue increasing our footprint in eHealth, strengthening our role as leading industry voice for medical technologies and sharing all news on innovations our sector is offering towards sustainability of healthcare systems. We shouldn’t under-estimate either the regulatory challenges we will be facing soon such as with the Data Protection Regulation and the Medical Device Regulation.

Also last week was key as the Opens external link in new windowWorld Cancer Day took place on 4 February, day during which we shared the value add of our technologies in the fight against cancer and continue to build awareness on all technological innovations that help in decreasing the number of deaths due to cancer.

Next month COCIR and its members will participate actively at Opens external link in new windowECR 2016 and will be happy to continue our support to the Opens external link in new windowEuroSafe Initiative.
