Med-e-Tel, organized by the International Society for Telemedicine & eHealth (ISfTeH), is one of the premier events worldwide in the field of Teleme dicine and eHealth and brings together participants from over 40 countries around the world. The ISfTeH is the International Federation of National Telemedicine/eHealth associations and is recognized as an NGO in Official Relations with the World Health Organization (WHO).
Med-e-Tel 2015 will be held in conjunction with the IHE-Europe Connectathon 2015, IHE's annual connectivity test marathon where health IT companies test the interoperability of their products against multiple vendors' systems. They perform these tests using real world clinical scenarios following IHE Integration Profile specifications across a variety of domains (radiology, cardiology, pharmacy, pathology, patient care devices, patient care coordination, laboratory, ...).
Governments, healthcare providers and health insurers worldwide, are turning towards Telemedicine and eHealth solutions as one of the tools to cope with the effects of today’s ageing society and tomorrow’s reduced healthcare workforce and to address the constant pressure on healthcare budgets and the need for more qualitative and cost effective healthcare. There is already a lot of experience and good practice that has been built up around the world, and there is a need for sharing these practical experiences across borders and across professions, hence the role of the International Society for Telemedicine & eHealth and its Med-e-Tel event.
