Does eHealth work and how will we know?

Health technology is developing at a rapid pace but take up in the market remains patchy and slow. A European Parliament debate organised by the British Chamber of Commerce in Belgium on May 29th will try to explain why.

The full potential of existing ehealth services and devices remains to be fully exploited.
At the same time budgetary pressure on health providers and the state - as well as a rapidly aging population - make it more relevant than ever to explore ways of evaluating services so that insurers and health professionals can compare new ways of doing things in comparison with their existing practices.
Such evaluations need to take account not just of potential savings but also patient welfare and well-being and, perhaps most of all, establish whether new technology can play a meaningful role in reducing hospital re-admission rates.

That's why Thierry Zylberberg, Executive Vice President of the France Telecom/Orange Group, will be part of the panel debate organised on May 29th by the British Chamber of Commerce in Belgium at the European Parliament.

Joined by Antoniya Parvanova, MEP and Peteris Zilgalvis Head of Unit, Health and Well-Being, DG CONNECT, we hope to explore ways to bring industry and health providers together in order to achieve a new consensus on what should be measured and how in order to unlock the potential of ICT in providing better care.
