Transatlantic Health IT/eHealth Cooperation Roadmap Webinar 'Supporting Transatlantic eHealth/Health IT Innovation Ecosystems' (26TH SEPTEMBER 2016). This public webinar presented an opportunity for feedback and dialogue among EU and US stakeholders on the new EU-US eHealth/Health IT MoU Roadmap. The new Roadmap was published on 27 July 2016, along with an Annex and represents the collaboration on eHealth/Health IT between the European Commission's DG CONNECT and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services under the auspices of the Transatlantic Economic Council, and includes support from the U.S. Department of Commerce and U.S. Department of State. In particular, this online session allowed the audience to join a roundtable that highlighted the new innovation ecosystems work-stream 'Supporting Transatlantic eHealth/Health IT Innovation Ecosystems'. This work-stream aims to become a powerful enabler for innovation in digital health on both sides of the Atlantic. It is anticipated that the stakeholder discussions held during the webinar will provide valuable input to carry out detailed action items found in the just-published version of the Roadmap and Annex. Medical practitioners, patient advocates and representative bodies, public sector officials, eHealth/Health IT policy makers, suppliers of eHealth/Health IT systems, educators, and other interested parties were invited to take part in the webinar to give their views and be part of the discussions on future EU-US cooperation activities.
