Countries all over the world are facing manifold challenges regarding their healthcare delivery. Due to limited budgets and increasing demand for high-quality healthcare services, new cost-efficient, reliable and interconnected systems need to be developed. E-health can make a significant contribution to ensure high-quality, sustainable healthcare systems. The Global E-Health Forum, which will take place on October 25 + 26, 2010 in Hamburg, Germany, will address these challenges.

The primary aim of the organizers of the Global E-Health Forum, the Hamburg Chamber of Commerce, IBM and the European Health Telematics Association (EHTEL), is to provide a cross-sector forum for representatives from hospitals and clinics, governments, health insurance organizations, service providers and the media. Policymakers, users, suppliers and implementation managers will have the opportunity to learn from each other and to develop collaborative working relationships.
