EHTEL: the European eHealth Stakeholder Platform
EHTEL (the European Health Telematics Association) is a unique pan-European multidisciplinary stakeholder organisation, which brings together corporate, institutional, and individual actors dedicated to the improvement of healthcare delivery through digital health.
EHTEL has been much motivated by the impact and implications of the COVID-19 pandemic to work with its members to find positive solutions to its threats and challenges.
