Under the patronage of the Estonian Presidency of the European Union, Health First Europe and City-Labs are pleased to invite you to join us for the Roundtable on Engaging Patients in the Digital Revolution: A Call to Build Smarter and Safer Healthcare Systems (Tuesday, 5 December 2017 – from 13.00 to 14.30).

The Roundtable, kindly hosted by MEP José Inácio Faria (EPP, Portugal),will outline the role of eHealth technology in building safer and sustainable healthcare systems. Stakeholders across the EU will be invited to share their best practices and discuss how European and national actors can be engaged to better ensure safe healthcare systems for all EU citizens and reduce the massive burden of preventable incidents in health settings.

The event will be also an opportunity to promote the Health First Europe Petition for Patient Safety, which call upon health authorities, policymakers to join hands to prevent unnecessary harm across Europe.

My City-Lab project – financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) – aims to create 2 new primary care structures, called City-Labs, integrating the innovation of laboratory medicine and mobile health.  The scope of the project is to facilitate access to laboratory tests as part of an integrated and collaborative approach to ambulatory care of a chronically ill individual, as well as to contribute to the dynamic monitoring of patients with chronic diseases.
