The Allergy and Respiratory Patients’ Digital Conference 2020 will explore how digital tools and innovation can empower allergy and respiratory patients to be in control of their healthcare. Join us to hear from keynote speakers, and take part in interactive workshops to learn new skills in digital health literacy.
The world is undergoing a digital transition that is changing our societies and economies at an extraordinary speed. The pandemic crisis has accelerated this evolution. Especially for the health sector, the COVID-19 pandemic showed the importance of implementing and providing digital servicesand digital solutions that work for patients, including eHealth, telemedicine, contact-tracing apps.
Digitalisation has the enormous potential to improve the health services and patients’ self-management. It can shift from a disease-centred to patient-centred healthcare. But digitalisation also presents challenges in terms of regulations, policy framework and access to digital tools.
This two-days event aims at empowering Patient Organizations, through the presentation of the latest innovations in research and care. EFA believes is crucial to increase digital health literacy, in a context were the allergy and respiratory communities might be challenged by the new global, fast-changing scenario.
