The traditional delivery models of European healthcare and welfare must be fundamentally changed to better fit to the long-term needs of persons with chronic conditions. New strategies and tools for their implementation are needed. New models go much beyond the scope of venerable traditions like organising health and welfare in independent silos and seamlessly integrate the healthcare and social service domains. Both eHealth and Telemedicine provide personal health services and can contribute significantly to the successful implementation of up-to-date health strategies. However, in order to move from high level EU policy initiatives into operational sustainable services, still more evidence is needed. This EHTEL symposium calls together European-wide leaders, drivers and frontrunners, including health policy, competence centres and many stakeholder representatives. This EHTEL event is kindly hosted by the EESC, the voice of organised civil society in the Union's decision-making process.
