The theme of this conference is: “eHealth for better patient outcomes: Innovating and strengthening systems”
eHealth: The cost-effective and secure use of ICT in support of health and health-related fields, including health care services, health surveillance, health literature, and health education, knowledge and research.
Patient Outcomes: The arc of history is increasingly clear: health care is shifting focus from the volume of services delivered to the value created for patients, with “value” defined as the outcomes achieved relative to the costs.
Innovating: Updating and transforming
Strengthening Systems: Interoperability, standards, and integration of data through OpenHIE to improve data sharing, reporting and use.
