Med-e-Tel is the International eHealth, Telemedicine and Health ICT Forum, taking place in Luxembourg on April 10-12, 2013. It is an official event of the International Society for Telemedicine & eHealth (ISfTeH), the international federation of national associations who represent their country’s Telemedicine and eHealth stakeholders. Med-e-Tel focuses on ehealth and telemedicine applications, a wide range of medical ICT applications, and on the convergence of information and communication technology with medical applications, which lead to higher quality of care, cost reductions, workflow efficiency, and widespread availability of healthcare services.
A Special Women and eHealth Session was held yesterday at Med-e-Tel, put together by the Millennia2015 Women and eHealth International Working Group. During this session, our new multilingual eHealth tool for maternal health, UniversalWomen Speaker, was presented by Dr. Jordi Serrano Pons. The session consisted of a series of discussion panels in order to design a global mapping of the roles and places of women within the arena of eHealth and Telemedicine. Following this session there was an official launch of the ISfTeH Working Group on Women (WoW). To find out more about the program for this special session, click here.
