Global E-Health Forum - Hamburg 2011
"Designing Personalized Healthcare"
Improving the quality of healthcare, increasing the efficiency of the systems and ensuring patient empowerment - these are the common goals worldwide when discussing the necessary transformation of the systems in order to guarantee a sustainable healthcare delivery in the future. The Global E-Health Forum - Hamburg 2011 will represent major stakeholders involved in designing personalized healthcare on October 11 - 13.
"E-Health is increasingly seen as a key enabler for this transformation", so Ljubisav Matejevic, founder and honorary chairman of the Global E-Health Forum. "And as a key enabler for the evolution process towards personalized healthcare. Healthcare that is proactive, instead of reactive, gives the patients the opportunity and the responsibility to become more involved in their own health. The ultimate goal will be to shape preventive and diagnostic care to match each person's unique characteristics."
The initiators of the Global E-Health Forum - Hamburg Chamber of Commerce, IBM and ICC - have developed this platform to discuss e-health strategies, best practices and new services/patient-centric approaches in a global context. While the main target groups consist of CEOs, CIOs and CFOs of hospitals and clinics, the comprehensive program will also attract representatives from governmental bodies, health insurance organizations, service providers, influencers from hospital and health management associations as well as representatives from universities/research institutes. Canada supports the Global E-Health Forum - Hamburg 2011 as partner country.
The first two conference days will feature speakers from all over the globe, e. g.
Richard C. Alvarez, President and Chief Executive Officer of Canada Health Infoway, with "Transforming Healthcare in Canada through E-Health"
Dr. Eric M. Liederman, Director of Medical Informatics, The Permanente Medical Group (USA), with "Balancing Privacy Protection with Patient Care",
Chai Chuah, National Director, National Health Board Business Unit, New Zealand Ministry of Health, with "Sustainable Personalized Healthcare - Challenges and Opportunities"
Dr. Wen Guo Hui, Senior Researcher, Guangdong Academy of TCM Research, Guangdong Provincial Hospital of Chinese Medicine, with "Designing Personalized Healthcare by Using Information Technology" (to be confirmed)
Markus Habetha-Eisenbarth, Project Manager eHealth, Asklepios eHealth GmbH, with "Developing E-Health Services - Lessons to be Learned from Industry and Social Media"
Their strategy presentations and case studies will be complemented by workshops and an exhibition of solution providers. The first day of the Global E-Health Forum ends with a reception in the U.S. Consulate General ("the little White House at the lake Alster"). The third day is dedicated to guided tours at different hospitals including various clinics of Asklepios. The Asklepios Hospital Group renewed its cooperation partnership for the Global E-Health Forum. Asklepios is the largest private hospital chain in Germany and Europe (the group oversees over 100 institutions, almost 40 day clinics, around 22,000 beds and 36,000 staff in Germany, Europe and the USA). CompuGroup Medical is the platinum sponsor of this year's conference. Associations like European Health Management Association, European Association of Healthcare IT Managers and American Health Information Management Association as well as Bundeswehrkrankenhaus (Military Hospital) Hamburg, Universitätsklinikum (University Medical Center) Hamburg-Eppendorf and Koch-Metschnikow-Forum e.
