Research output: Contribution to conferenceOther


The potential benefits of eHealth are well documented. However, while there are examples of successful pilot projects, often they do not make it to a large scale implementation due to their complexity,resistance to change or spiralling implementation costs. As a result, recently both the UK and the Netherlands have scaled back their eHealth initiatives reflecting the challenges faced by some of the larger government led programmes.Facilitated by Professor Chambers, co- author of the report by KPMG and the Manchester Business School,‘Accelerating innovation: the power of the crowd’, the workshop will introduce examples of eHealth initiatives from Catalonia and the Stockholm region against the backdrop of the findings of the KPMG /MBS report. In a highly interactive session design participants will be invited to share their ideas on howthe challenges of eHealth implementation at various levels could be addressed.This symposium is co-funded by the European Union, in the framework of the Health Programme
