Swiss Applied eHealth Day: Event Cancelled


Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, the Swiss Federal authorities have decided to forbid all public and private events. Therefore MIE 2020 and the Swiss Applied eHealth day side event will not take place. You can obtain more information on this decision on the official MIE 2020 website.
We would like to thank everybody involved in the organization of this event for their great effort and wish you and your families good health.


As a complementary event during the Medical Informatics Europe (MIE) 2020 conference 2020 in Geneva, the Swiss Applied eHealth Day will be held on April 29. Throughout the day several Universities of Applied Sciences in Switzerland will showcase concrete projects with applied nature from the eHealth sector. There will be around 20 presentations in the form of posters and demos where attendees can freely interact and discuss the presented projects in a casual manner with the authors. The presentations will include a variety of topics from a broad spectrum such as radiographics, patient care quality, diet, optimization of hospital resources, physiotherapy and others. The presentations will be split into two sessions with one in the morning and another in the afternoon. At the end of the day, there will be time left for networking, discussing new ideas and potential future collaborations.
