“THE FUTURE OF E-HEALTH IN THE AI ERA. State of art and scenarios in the EU”. This is the title of the Power Breakfast held on 11th April in our Brussels office.
After a brief introduction by the President of the Institute for Competitiveness (I-Com) Stefano da Empoli, it was the turn of the guest speaker, Mr. Marco Marsella, Head of eHealth, Well-Being and Ageing unit, DG CNECT at the European Commission.
Digital innovation in the healthcare sector is becoming increasingly important globally, and eHealth offers many advantages and benefits, including patients becoming more aware of their health and healthcare opportunities.
The meeting has focused on the state of art of e-health in the European Union and the steps undertaken by EU institutions and Member States to accelerate the digital transformation of healthcare systems. Through a greater access to personal health data for patients and health professionals, digital health solutions enable faster diagnosis, improved monitoring, more effective treatment, reduced medical errors, as well as assisting governments and healthcare providers in increasing access to care and better health outcomes.
