New look at Digitalisation in healthcare

The recent Seminar announcement from EHTEL is worth visiting – we look at the specifics… what they say is this:

Digitisation in health opens up tremendous perspectives for new data-driven services. Our webinar to debate how individual health data combined with data collected in health and social care will provide the fuel for innovation in the future.

The implicit question is: What is Europe’s role in data economy and could maintaining trust be the biggest opportunity for Europe?

Jointly with Sitra, EHTEL is pleased to invite you to a webinar around the IHAN approach for trustfully personalised health services. Sitra’s IHAN® project aims to build the foundation for personalised wellbeing and healthcare services. It is a collaboration effort for European organisations. Evidently such an effort can be of interest for eHealth Competence centres, and all projects and initiatives involved in managing digital health data, also with a view for Artifical Intelligence based services.

Having been inspired by an EHTEL network meeting, we will inform on what IHAN is all about. What are building blocks for the IHAN rulebook like architecture, interoperability and trustful use? What are the core technical components including identity wallet, consent management and logging. How can these components be built according to IHAN requirements?

As an example, My Travel Health – Tokyo 2020 will be presented: The pilot project aims to benefit all stakeholders – travellers get medical attention faster and more precisely; the provider’s health data is securely exchanged with traveller’s consent; and medical teams can quickly get trusted patient information in their own language.

EHTEL moreover understands the webinar as an important milestone to define an AI-friendly environment in health and social care. This idea will be highlighted in more detail at the EHTEL 20th Anniversary & Symposium early December in Barcelona.
