Event Description

EU countries are facing common challenges related to the epidemic of non-communicable and chronic diseases, the growing demands of ageing populations and the dramatically rising costs of healthcare. Digital health have quickly become an opportunity to meet these challenges. Mobile technologies can help to empower patients to manage their own health and improve their quality of life by reducing the chance for complications. Furthermore, digital solutions can contribute to more efficient use of healthcare resources and to better targeted and cost-effective healthcare.
 
This event will explore the barriers to introducing mobile technologies in the healthcare sector in Europe and why the huge potential of digitising healthcare does not translate into real transformation on the ground.
 
This event is by invitation-only and will gather 20 selected key decision-makers and experts on the topic.

Hosted in our offices, the Mobile Meetings Series are small scale – but big scope – invitation only events for the Brussels public policy audience.
 
Join us for a different take on the main issues affecting the mobile communications industry and its place in Europe’s information society.
