Empowerment of citizens and patients
The primary aim of the eHealth Conference 2012 is to strengthen the empowerment of patients in the health care process. It is all about to enable acceptance of those for whom the health telematics platform and the different services essentially are developed and deployed.
The high-profile German eHealth Conference will be opened by the Federal Minister of Health, Daniel Bahr and Andreas Storm, the Minister for Social Affairs, Health, Women and Family of the Saarland. Andreas Storm also holds the chairmanship in the 85th Health Ministerial Conference of the German Federal States in 2012. The discussion on eHealth topics is then started by a guest lecture on the opportunities of "artificial intelligence" software to the support of the medical staff.
eHealth in Europe - borderless mobile
Questions around the use of health services on the other side of national frontiers is a day-by-day experience in regions near the border, like the Saarland. Is there a need for cross-border eHealth solutions? Which activities pave the way for Europe-wide applications? Besides activities for putting into action the European patient mobility guideline, border regions have developed regional eHealth services. These services should also by recognised by the Europe-wide coordination procedures.
In accordance with the overall of patient empowerment the final part of the conference will be opened - without any access fees - for the general public. Furthermore the organisers prepare to issue "Saarbrücken theses on the future of ehealth"
