Event Description

AppGASTEIN2016:
Here to stay? Health apps and their place in European health systems

 AppGastein 2016 - Programme (328 KB) (01.09.2016)
Further programme information will be available soon.

This event will offer a platform for all those involved in a health app's life cycle to exchange experiences, identify problems and needs, and look for solutions. Following this, the EHFG will present a unique opportunity for members of the health app sector to directly engage with national and EU decision-makers across all policy levels and gain first-hand insights from the end-user – and vice versa. 

Topics to be discussed range from market access and liability to reimbursement and employability: according to the White Paper (PatientView, 2015), lack of trust due to an insecurity regarding who develops or funds apps, and confusion when confronted with the vast choice available, are among the main barriers when it comes to using health apps.
