Workshop: Looking beyond COVID-19: Putting people at the centre in the digital health era (EPH 2021, EuroHealthNet Speaking)

12 November, 2021

Fri 12 November, 11:30-12:30
Organised by WHO EURO, EUPHA
EuroHealthNet speaking


The COVID-19 pandemic has given rise to the use of several technologies to control disease transmission. Whilst these applications are intended to empower people to be informed, alerted or to be able to pursue a so-called return to normality their use has also raised several questions around the way in which data is being gathered and used across countries. However, the potential of big data and real time data in better managing health and disease as well as in leaving nobody behind may have also been underestimated to date. This roundtable will permit a deep dive and follow up discussion to some of the points raised in the plenary debate on Capturing the breadth and depth of the digital health era – beyond the COVID-19 pandemic.
