PCHAlliance Open House-Austria

Monday, 22 May 2017, 17.00

The Personal Connected Health Alliance (PCHAlliance) works collaboratively with health, technology and life sciences, public policy, research and advocacy groups to support personal health engagement, positive behaviour change and improved wellbeing and health outcomes.

PCHAlliance publishes the Continua Design Guidelines for the interoperability of personal health systems. They have been referenced by the European Commission, by the US’ Office of the National Coordinator, and the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) as the international standard for safe, secure, and reliable exchange of data from personal health devices.  A growing number of European health systems are adopting Continua Guidelines to advance interoperable telehealth services.  Austria is one of them.

PCHAlliance invites policymakers, health professionals, experts and stakeholders to join us for the Open House to learn about the PCHAlliance, Continua Guidelines, and their role in Austria and beyond.  Join us for presentations, discussions and networking.

The Open House is open to all registered delegates of the Austrian eHealth Summit, and invited guests.
