EHEALTH ACTION PLAN TRACK
Big Data and Healthcare Reform
You can’t change what you can’t measure”. In analytics lies the potential for revolutionizing Healthcare. The session will discuss how healthcare reform can be successfully implemented using big data intelligence. Beyond genomics health uses of big data extends to many data areas including – but not limited to – environmental, epidemiological, disease and dietary.
mHealth for improved accessibility and quality of life
Expectations are high for mHealth. The widespread use of mobile connectivity in healthcare could significantly cut costs, increase the reach and accessibility of healthcare and improve the quality of European citizens’ lives. However, healthcare’s strong resistance to change slows adoption of innovative mHealth. Widespread adoption of mHealth requires changes in organisational schemes and the behaviour of actors who are trying to protect their interests. It also requires services and products that appeal to current payers. The session will draw upon these challenges by presenting successful examples of working solutions, meaningful services and promising business and care models.
The session will focus on Research and innovation in Horizon 2020 and its Work Programme 2015, as well as PPI and PCP models in support of innovation.

eHealth Market Development
Policies and regulations as a market enabler. The session will tackle issues of market adoption, in the framework of European Standardization and will provide perspectives of member States, and the industry. The session will incorporate the perspectives of SME winners of the SME Competition Award.
Regulation, Certification and Standardisation are often considered as roadblocks to market development. But they can be technology enablers. The session will discuss how regulation & policy can adopt the market perspective to have the role of spreading ehealth technology from the few to the many and scaling up applications.
