In the second half of 2020, Germany will hold the Presidency of the Council of the EU, thereby initiating the trio presidency Germany-Portugal-Slovenia. The German Federal Ministry of Health would like to use this opportunity to contribute to further improving healthcare for all EU citizens.
EU member states are facing common national and international challenges. One of the prevailing trends of recent years is the digitalisation of health services and administration. Germany sees enormous potential in the use of telemedicine, big data, Artificial Intelligence and health applications. The intended High-level conference will hence focus on the future of digitalising Europe's health sector by addressing some of these common challenges and discussing potential solutions. It will take place on 11. November 2020 at Radialsystem V in Berlin. At the centre of the conference will be the question of how Artificial Intelligence impacts health care or how it can be better utilised to improve the latter in the interest of patients EU-wide. It will be structured around the patient pathway from diagnosis to hospital and home care.
