High-Level EHealth conference in Cork, 5-6 may 2004 


Hosted by the Irish presidency of the European Union, this conference, bringing 
together ministers, commissioners, representatives of European health ministries, 
decision makers, policy makers and key players, provided an opportunity to overview 
eHealth developments that have taken place since the Ministerial Declaration adopted 
during the first e-Health Conference in Brussels in May 2003. 

Through a number of plenary and parallel sessions, the debates illustrated how 
Europe’s citizens currently benefit from e-Health tools and services and how they 
will benefit in the years ahead. There was a focus on access (such as health portals) 
and empowerment (such as health cards and telemedicine). The conference also examines 
the following areas: integrated care records, evidenced based decisions, and clinical 
excellence. 

During the conference (Cork, Ireland, 5-6 may 2004), as a finalist HON was invited 
to present HON’s activities in a showcase event during two days.
