Advances in ICTs can effectively be leveraged to address some of society's most important challenges in health. Although states have the principal responsibility for action and industry drives innovation and investment in this sector, individuals and communities should remain the main beneficiaries. In this interactive session will engage panelists and the audience in an in depth exploration of key themes, priorities and challenges in eHealth for the future.
KEY QUESTIONS: - How can ICTs transform health care? " What does it take to make eHealth a reality? - Are there differences between developed and emerging countries? - What can be learned from other sectors? - What specific actions are required now? And by whom? - How much will proper eHealth cost? And, how much will it save? - What needs to happen to accelerate the development of eHealth systems and drive their use?
