The e-HealthWorld Monaco conference will be held at the Fairmont Monte-Carlo on June 1 and 2 under the High Patronage of Prince Albert II of Monaco. This scientific symposium on the topic of connected health has become, after only two editions, an essential rendezvous of the international e-health sector, and the 2017 event will cement its position as a major global event.
According to a report by “Grand View Research”, the e-health market will increase from $46 billion (€42.5 billion) in 2015 to $400 billion (€370 billion) in 2022.
Terms such as NICT, NBIC, AI, Big Data, Robotics, Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, Blockchains, and so forth, were not part of medical vocabulary in the recent past but are now playing a part in digitalised medicine.
Defined by WHO as the “transfer of health resources and health care by electronic means”, e-health comprises three main axes: the transmission of health information to health professionals and users via the Internet and telecommunications; using the power of information technology and electronic commerce to improve public health services through education and training of health professionals; the use of e-commerce and e-business methods in the organisation of health systems.
Leading international players in the health sector are due to take part in the Monaco conference, bringing together, among others, pharmaceutical companies, hospitals and all healthcare professionals.
