Why Estonia is a good place for eHealth

Estonia’s Government is called e-Estonia and it integrates all public services, which are delivered digitally. One of the keys to its development is the fact that Estonia created an open and decentralised system that connects services and databases with each other.

European healthcare IT leaders and professionals will gather in Tallinn from 16-18 October 2017. The conference ‘Health in the Digital Society. Digital Society for Health’ is organised by the Estonian Ministry of Social Affairs as part of Estonia’s Presidency of the Council of the European Union, ECHAlliance and HIMSS Europe.

The high-level conference will address how digital technologies and the wider use of health data are changing our lives and the ways of healthcare. Through a combination of educational sessions, interactive workshops and valuable networking opportunities, the conference will not only showcase already existing digital health solutions, but also use-cases and technologies to demonstrate that citizen-centric health services and systems are genuinely valuable.

The conference will focus on three main topics:

  • Building citizen-driven demand in eHealth
  • eHealth supporting the value driven and sustainable health and social services
  • eHealth as a driver of innovation and economic development
