Digital Health and Data Week


The Digital Health and Data Week is a three-day event, the result of the collaboration between EHTEL, I~HD, and the UNICOM project consortium. They are partnering to work on digital health solutions and data that result in the provision of real value for care and research.  All three days of the week include complementary topics, and their content builds on each other.

Today, it has never been so important for all digital health stakeholders to network and learn from each other’s experiences.

In order to make it worth your time and effort to come in person to Ghent, i~HD, EHTEL, and UNICOM, are partnering together to create a unique Digital Health and Data Week. All three organisations are collaborating in organising a combined set of events during the last week of November 2023, in Ghent (Belgium).

  • On 28 November 2023, UNICOM is arranging its 7th consortium meeting
  • On 29 November 2023, EHTEL organises its 2023 Thought Leader Symposium
  • On 30 November and 1 December 2023i~HD will hold its annual conference, in collaboration with the Health Data Forum

All three days of the week include complementary topics, and their content builds on each other.

This first-ever Digital Health and Data Week offers a practical and creative way, for different, but complementary communities, to meet up and share knowledge and practices. Use the opportunity to either meet up in person or attend online.

DHU Session: Patients in the Driving Seat – i~HD annual conference

Date: 1 December 2023

Time: 10:00 – 16:00

DHU will be featured at the i~HD annual conference with a session on successful practices for patient engagement and empowerment.

What does digital health bring to patients today in terms of innovation and value? What are the game changers introducing the change in the relationship between the patient and the healthcare providers? The patient as curator and more and more in charge of his health prevention, his healthcare and his treatment. During this session, the focus will be on current successful practices providing trust in the eHealth ecosystem and actively engaging and empowering patients to make informed decisions about their own health and care, as well as on the enabling conditions for scaling up what has today shown to provide value and benefit to patients, citizens and society.
