eHealth during the World of Health IT

When? ES12 on Wednesday, 11 October, 11:15-12:15. "eHealth IMPACT: Measuring the Economic Value of ICT in Healthcare", by Tom Jones and Alexander Dobrev
Where? European Commission booth at the Partners Pavilion (4)

From improved quality and better access to care through to avoidance of unnecessary public expenditure, information and communication technologies (ICT) can greatly benefit all aspects of delivering healthcare. These 10 case studies clearly demonstrate that eHealth matters, that it is well worth the investment, and that it can lead to substantial economic and social benefits.

The case studies are included in a newlypublished European Commission study "eHealth is Worth it?€“ The economic benefits of implemented eHealth solutions at ten European sites". Supported by the European Commission Information Society and Media Directorate-General, the study is one of the first attempts to assess the real impact of eHealth applications, their benefits and safety aspects.
