Personal Health Systems 2007 Conference

Personal Health Systems 2007
Brussels, 12-13 February, 2007
The conference is organised by the European Commission and involves cooperation of several Directorates General. Sessions will be held over two days and will feature experts from a diverse background. Invited speakers will come from research organisations, medical device industry, healthcare organisations, user groups, Member State public administrations, policy makers, procurers and insurers.

At first, this conference attempts to consolidate the results of over 10 years of research in the area of Personal Health Systems (including telemedicine and home care) and demonstrate how applications can be expanded at European level to:

  • Support efforts towards the sustainability of healthcare delivery systems.
  • Contribute to the i2010 flagship initiative on "caring for people in an ageing society, addressing technologies for wellbeing, independent living and health".
  • Facilitate cross-border health services.
  • Reduce disparities between regions related to access and continuity of healthcare.
  • Facilitate the growth and sustainability of eHealth markets.

Further, the scope of this event extends to demonstrate the impact of eHealth, and in particular of Personal Health Systems, on:

  • prevention and management of diseases, in particular long term care
  • empowerment of citizens for improved management of health status
  • independent living and care of people in need
  • support to ongoing reforms of healthcare delivery systems

By bringing together healthcare professionals, industrial representatives as well as European, national and regional authorities, the conference aims to stimulate market development and support Member States and regions in deploying eHealth systems and services that enable better care for people in an ageing society.

Finally, the conference will serve as information and networking opportunity for the constituency interested in the upcoming Call 1 of the 7th Framework Programme, which aims at a new generation of Personal Health Systems.
