EHTEL celebrates 25 years of action

 Sumposium bubbles
This year, EHTEL is celebrating 25 years of action and implementation. EHTEL has come a long way since its launch in 1999.  
EHTEL began its 25th anniversary year celebrations in May 2024. Amid EHTEL's active contributions to the Radical Health Festival Helsinki, it already held a celebratory drink for members and guests. The festival already included many important themes and topics, led by EHTEL. 
In autumn 2024, EHTEL will continue to organise a wide range of special webinars and workshops that will culminate in the holding of the 2024 Symposium


Looking back and looking forwards towards a better digital health future

EHTEL's 2024 Symposium is a particularly important gathering and an especially festive event, held during the association's 25th anniversary year. It will involve attendees in looking back and looking forward. In the digital health field, where the one constant is change, looking back at the "where" and "why" it all started from,​ is crucial for creating a better future.
Isthepastactuallythefutureformaintenance “Back to the future” is the theme of EHTEL's 25th Anniversary Symposium in 2024
Looking back, EHTEL members will explore their lessons learned on managing change and their deployment journeys over time. Topics to be covered include: 
  • Data sharing, from silos to ecosystems
  • Towards an enabling infrastructure
  • From process-centred care to people-centred care
Looking forward towards a better digital health future, EHTEL members and friends will highlight:
  • Transforming care delivery, including the use of AI
  • Change management, including capacity-building
  • Implementation strategies for the European Health Data Space.  
The Symposium agenda and content is being built by an EHTEL multi-stakeholder programme committee. 

Who will be there?

Stakeholders sympo 2024

Stakeholders are key to Europe's digital health transformation. Given EHTEL's diversity and range, the Symposium will offer you plenty of opportunities to mix with stakeholders from your own digital health area of work and many other areas of activity; contributors to many big impact projects and activities; longstanding, new, and potential members of EHTEL; and staff from several of the European institutions. 

What's in it for you at the 2024 Symposium?
