Following the success of three previous events the International Forum for Healthcare IT (IteG) expects over 250 specialist exhibitors at its 2007 event. Aimed at IT managers, healthcare decision-makers, doctors and those responsible for IT in nursing, participation in the ITeG specialist programme is free of charge.

ITeG 2007 is also central in several healthcare IT and telematics events taking place within eHealth week Berlin, which aims to promote eHealth discussions and exchange of views to present medium-term solution options for cross-border, interoperable processes and Europe-wide electronic services.

’We are convinced that the bundling of high quality eHealth events at the ITeG provides added value for our specialist visitors, said Dr Wolrad Rube, Chair of VHitG, adding: ‘This year we can create a European platform from our national platform.’

Parallel events to IteG:
• Within the EU Presidency of the Council framework, the EU Commission and Federal Ministry for Health (BMG) organised the eHealth Conference 2007 (; which will present EU member states eHealth activities, and target those responsible for telematics in governments, health insurance, service provision and user organisation at home and abroad. The eHealth Conference is on the level of European Under-Secretaries of State.
• Telemed ( is directed at scientists in health telematics and telemedicine. Main topics: electronic patient records (EPR), health portals, etc.
• The KIS Conference of the GMDS organisers will be involved in workshops.
• The European Connectathon of the IHE (Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise) will run in tandem with these events.
