HITCH at WoHIT 2011

HITCH was present at the World of Health IT Conference (WoHIT 2011) in Budapest, in order to present its work on the future of interoperability testing to decision makers on the national and European level. WoHIT and the accompanying eHealth week is one of the most important eHealth events on the political level and describe theirselves as:

European healthcare establishments will be faced with substantial challenges over the next decade, such as significant demographic changes and reduced human resources, forcing European leaders to re-design the European Healthcare landscape. eHealth Week 2011 will not only offer an insight into how our leaders are planning and investing for the future, it will also host an exhibition which will showcase leading partners and industry partners, offering innovative solutions for our future.
