Denmark invests €806 million in hospitals!*

Neelie Kroes
Vice President of the European Commission and Commissioner for the Digital Agenda

‘I call upon Member States to follow the Danish example by investing more in innovative eHealth solutions that give patients secure online access to their medical health data, improve the effectiveness of health care and reduce medical error. Through our pilot project epSOS we can develop the technology to make this happen.’
John Dalli
European Commissioner for Health and Consumer Policy

‘Denmark is at the leading edge of eHealth uptake in Europe. I believe other Member States have much to gain from taking inspiration from the Danish eHealth model, rather than re-inventing the wheel. This is why I very much welcome the willingness of the upcoming Danish Presidency to share its eHealth expertise.’
   
       
  eHealth Week 2012 brings together two main events: the High level eHealth conference co-organised by the European Commission and the Danish Presidency of the Council of the European Union, and WoHIT (World of Health IT Conference & Exhibition) organised by HIMSS Europe. The event, now hailed as the largest annual pan-European eHealth conference, not only brings together industry partners and providers from across Europe, but also important government and regional decision makers.
