CONNECT eHealth event on Tuesday, November 22nd

eHealth is a rapidly developing area, promising to deliver healthcare more effectively and efficiently while empowering patients through technology. Maynooth University is hosting CONNECT eHealth on 22nd November which will bring together national and international stakeholders to discuss, understand and scope opportunities in this field.  Understanding and impacting the development of this area requires a multi-disciplinary approach, as patients, doctors, healthcare companies and policy makers debate different possibilities for change, and even the definition of fundamental terms like “health” and “care”.

A line-up of interesting speakers will present on topics such as the rise of the ePatient, eHealth in the aging demographic and practicalities of eHealth in the real world. 

A panel discussion will include stakeholders from funding agencies, the legal profession, and the healthcare industry and will be followed by a range of workshops which will provide further insight into the eHealth landscape.

Registration is free but please register early as places are limited.
