MedTech Europe Event

IHE profiles for personal device interoperability

2021-01-13 - 2021-01-13


A MedTech Europe webinar to discuss the new landscape of personal device interoperability, for the medical technology industry and other interested parties.

Personal medical devices help patients and citizens keep track of their health, monitor and improve their lifestyles, and manage chronic and other conditions. If they are Interoperable, they can send health data to healthcare professionals, to formal and informal carers, and to electronic health records, empowering remote monitoring solutions, delivery of care over distance, and advanced data analytics and AI. Critical to interoperability is the commitment to open standards and specifications that help overcome the persistent data silos and realise the transformation of health and care.

With the 2019 PCHAlliance (Continua) and IHE announcement of their collaboration to simplify the collection of personal health data into health record systems, IHE has emerged as the critical player in personal device interoperability. MedTech Europe, the European trade association for the medical technology industry, will organise a webinar on 13 January 2021, 15.00-16.30 CET, to explore how the medical technology industry can access IHE knowhow, and contribute to the IHE community to advance patient care.
