This workshop is a parallel session of the eHealth Week to be held on 10 May in Budapest, Hungary. This session will showcase the role of the regions in further deploying personal e-health solutions, with a focus on actions to manage the chronic pathologies that require the most resources in Europe: diabetes, cardio-vascular diseases and obstructive pulmonary disease.
A selection of regional examples will illustrate how and why regions are using telemedicine for chronic disease management. This will be followed by a panel of key stakeholders (patients, the industry and regional decision-makers) to discuss how we can build on current experience in the regions and further facilitate cooperation between the different partners.
The aim of this session is to identify the steps that need to be taken to link the various regional initiatives across Europe today and to succeed in dropping the â€˜eâ€™ from â€˜e-healthâ€™. Key questions that this session will address are:
