eHealth week 2017 is organised by the Maltese Ministry of Health as part of their Presidency of the Council of the European Union, the European Commission and HIMSS Europe. The eHealth week 2017 will gather stakeholders from across the globe to address international hot topics related to healthcare IT, including ‘cross-border exchange of personal health data: from policy to practice’ and ‘European reference networks: how digital health helps’.

One of the objectives of the Maltese eHealth agenda is to improve the myHealth portal for patients and clinicians. The next generation of myHealth has been launched and will be available for international demonstration in 2017.

As such, two of the themes will be addressed during the eHealth week:

  • Giving European citizens access to their personal health data
  • Improving public health through better use of clinical data
