E-Health in Practice

The event is aimed at everyone connected with the healthcare sector in the broadest sense - public policy makers, hospital administration, local authorities, patient organisations, employers, private sector providers of healthcare solutions and media.

The aim of the conference will be to show the practical potential of digitisation in healthcare based on British experience. Analysis of contemporary trends in the area of e-health in the UK will highlight solutions that could work in Poland. Healthcare systems around the world see digital transformation as an important factor that increases their efficiency and availability.

The event will look at selected digital applications, practical aspects of Polish legal regulations dealing with online business and  e-health, and examples of innovations developed by British companies. This will be followed by a panel discussion entitled Digital patient experiences, where patients' perspectives will be considered against a e-health solutions and directions of its development.
