The European Commission commended the “2nd Lisbon eHealth Summer Week” for strengthening synergies and sharing good practices in digital health. Promoted by SPMS, EPE, the initiative was held from June 19th to the 22nd, at the Centro Cultural de Belém, while simultaneously meetings on international projects were held at SPMS’ facilities in Lisbon and Oporto.
With the participation of over 200 experts from the European Commission, ministries, universities and agencies, the debate focused on the implementation of eHealth services on a European scale and on international projects in which SPMS, EPE collaborates, such as EURO-CAS, HealtheID and eHMSEG, among others.
The launch of eHAction, the third Joint Action to Support the eHealth Network, under the coordination of SPMS, EPE, representing Portugal, was one of the highlights of the week with the first public presentation of the project.
As coordinator of eHAction, SPMS, EPE promotes cooperation initiatives among Member States for the development and implementation of projects that seek to foster the sharing of information among health professionals, improving access to citizens and the provision of health care cross-border. SPMS, EPE once again boosted Portugal’s strategic positioning in the eHealth area by promoting debates and dissemination of knowledge and good practices in digital health on a global scale.
We would also like to thank everyone who took an active role on this initiative. During this week, everyone’s presence and inputs were vital to move forward with the ideas and projects we have in hand that aim to improve health information management in Europe for professionals and citizens.
