Collaborating for Digital Health and Care in Europe
We start 2021 with a look back at last year's Symposium and its achievements. It provided us with a wealth of inspiring ideas. In case you missed it the first time around, you can now revisit this important 2020 event.
Looking forward in 2021, there is a promising wave of helpful, new technologies in front of us. They will help us to care for the physical and mental health impacts of COVID-19. There are important training opportunities too.
EHTEL will continue to monitor closely these innovations and training options.
Focusing on the community level and local ecosystems is becoming increasingly important. Since EHTEL is itself a community, we are keen on such an approach. In 2021, we will keep on informing and inspiring our members with ideas, information, and findings on the most current and urgent eHealth topics.
We very much look forward to working with you in 2021.
