What do you expect of your participation at the European Congress on eCardiology and eHealth?

To create awareness about this innovative service (the FocusOnTM service) and to interact with physicians that are interested in adopting the service and have follow-up conversations after the conference.

According to you, what would most help eCardiology and eHealth to grow in the very near future?

The e-health and e-cardiology conference should continue in its spirit of bringing together all different stakeholders, leveraging the cross-functional approach, so that healthcare providers, administrators, medical device and medical IT industry, health economists, etc. can work together for continuous improvement of quality of care and efficiency, in a resource-constrained environment.
We all know that data moves faster and cheaper than patients and need to work together to make e-health a recognized and fully reimbursed branch of medicine and cardiology.
Focus on health economics will be key, as funding and reimbursement still represents the main barrier to adoption of e-cardiology, especially in Europe.
