EHTEL Annual Symposium 2017

From the 15.03. – 16.03.2017, the annual meeting of all EHTEL members took place in Brussels. On the first day, the evaluation and translation of e-health innovations and the development of e-health infrastructures were exchanged on a large scale between the two central working groups “Innovation Initiative” and the “ELO Group”. Our team presented the Saxon assessment approach for e-health platforms and gave an insight into the development of a Saxonian e-health ecosystem (see slides). The development of other European regions such as Catalonia, Apulia/Italy and Norrbotten/Sweden were also presented in the very engaging presentations.

Buchbeitrag - "Nachhaltigkeit von E-Health-Projekten" in "E-Health-Ökonomie"

Fehlende Verstetigung innovativer E-Health-Projekte stellt eine aktuelles Problem der IT-Handlungsträger im Gesundheitswesen dar. Innovative E-Health-Lösungen werden durch verschiedene Projekte implementiert, schaffen es jedoch meist nicht ihren Wirkungskreis zu vergrößern. Dieses Phänomen wird allgemein als Pilotitis bezeichnet. Dieser Problematik widmet sich der Beitrag "Nachhaltigkeit von E-Health-Projekten" von Hannes Schlieter, Martin Benedict und Martin Burwitz. Der Beitrag ist im Buch E-Health-Ökonomie (Stefan Müller-Mielitz (Hrsg.), Thomas Lux (Hrsg.)) erschienen. Er erläutert Betrachtungsebenen für die Interoperabilität und Erweiterbarkeit von E-Health-Projekten und zeigt damit Wege auf, wie E-Health-Projekte einen nachhaltigen Innovationsrahmen gestalten können.

HeLiCT at EHTEL/ELO network meeting

EHTEL/ELO-meeting in Odense

In the course of our activities in the EHTEL,  on behalf of the TU Dresden we were participating in the EHTEL/ELO Network meeting from November, 7th - 8th, 2016 at MedCom in Odense (Denmark). EHTEL/ELO is a network of national and regional eHealth competence centers and focus national and european eHealths strategies. For example, Denmark has one of the most innovative eHealth-based healthcare systems. Other important players of European ehealth activities like Finland, France, Estonia or Croatia have participated in the meeting. As the host of the meeting, MedCom has organized two very interesting days. On the first day we have got great insights to the Danish eHealth-platform and the activities around it. On the second day, the different European partners have presented the current status of their eHealth-activities.

We contributed to the meeting by our research works and our experiences from regional eHealth projects. In particular, we presented and discussed the topic of evaluation of platforms. As today platforms are becoming an increasingly important aspect of the eHealth-activities. There are still different approaches and architectures that have been emerged in Europe. Thus, platforms are understood and utilized heterogeneously. This leads to the need for comparison and benchmarking of different platforms. At TU Dresden we are focusing on how these eHealth-platforms can be evaluated and how we can handle it. The participation in the activities of EHTEL/ELO and the innovation initiatives of EHTEL give us the opportunity to transfer and evaluate our research in the field of tension between science, practice, society and politics.

We were delighted to participate in the meeting and we want to say our special thank you to our Danish hosts for the marvellous organization of the meeting.
