April 2nd, 2019
The VIII eHealth Roadshow took place on 02 April 2019 in the framework of the HIMSS Liège event in Liège, Belgium. Main focus and topic of the 3-day event was how to better connect hospitals and patients through new information technologies. This has been a perfect match for the eHealth roadshow giving the opportunity to digital health companies to present their solution in front of high-calibre stakeholders in the eHealth field.
More than 200 representatives of hospitals or healthcare organisations have met to discuss what patient-centricity in practice can look like. Above that, the participants had the possibility to join a guided tour of the Liège University Hospital, which is among Europe’s most digitally mature hospitals.
7 small and medium sized companies were selected by eHealth Hub and HIMSS Liège to present their eHealth solution in the session: “CIO’s meet Innovators” Among the 4 high-level Committee Members had been – besides others Prof. Philippe Kolh, CIO of Liège University Hospital and Wim Eurlings, CIO, Zuyderland Medisch Centrum, Netherlands.
Bingli presented an AI powered smart medical interview chatbot preparing patients and doctors better for consultation. Oncomfort provides patients with stress, anxiety, and pain self-management tools based on virtual reality. With Andaman 7 patients can take control of their health information by collecting them in an app. In addition, Lindacare, GoClinic, Lynxcare and Communicare attracted undivided attention on their innovative eHealth solutions in exciting pitches as well as lively question and answer rounds.
The eHealth Roadshows was closed with a networking session and bilateral discussions, where SMEs and Committee Members were able to engage with each other:
“I appreciated having a few minutes of quality attention from CIOs. The questions from the moderator, were also very interesting and pushing CIOs to open up more to startups. Thank you!”
