i~HD appointed to join the European Commission's eHealth Stakeholder Group

[07/06/2016]

i~HD is one of 30 organisations in Europe appointed by the European Commission to its strategic consultation and think tank organisation: the eHealth Stakeholder Group. This Group, representing the interests of just about every kind of stakeholder involved in health, health care and health ICT, is regularly updated and consulted on the strategy and initiatives led by DG CONNECT and DG SANTE. Dipak Kalra represented i~HD at its first meeting on 18 May 2016, in Brussels.

This will allow i~HD to influence forthcoming EC strategy in key areas of relevance to our organisation, such as guidelines on the sharing of research data across Europe through an Open Research Cloud, European guidelines on mHealth applications and the promotion of European standards.
