#2 Professional Training Session with around a hundred participants
On May 25th, X-eHealth hosted a Professional Training Session “Data Exchange For Better Health – Accessing and Sharing Medical Images and Discharge Letters Across Europe”, by videoconference (9h00-13h00 CET).
This session represented the project’s second communication initiative towards Health Professionals and was attended by 83 participants. On this basis, the event instructed health professionals on digital health services as well as on its current state across Europe.
On a more technical level, the session covered topics such as the governance of medical data sharing, digital health services best practices, implementation and definition of service specifications and future directions for cross-border exchange of medical information.
By addressing these topics, X-eHealth professional training session capacitated health professionals, through the improvement of essential eSkills, in three main objectives:
. to introduce cross-border digital health services
. to raise knowledge about legislative environments and digital health cross-border services adoption
. to capacitate them to act as direct means of communication to instruct citizens on how to use digital health services and know their rights.
Coordinated by Portugal, represented by SPMS, X-eHealth’s purpose is to lay the foundations to advance the integration process of the eHealth services features by developing a common framework for medical imaging, discharge letters, laboratory results and rare diseases.
