6th - 8th November 2013: ICT 2013

The biggest ICT event in Europe: 'ICT 2013 - Create, Connect, Grow' took place in Vilnius (Lithuania) on 6-8 November, 2013. As one of the biggest events during the Lithuanian Presidency it brought together more than 5.000 researchers, innovators, entrepreneurs, industry representatives, young people and politicians. The event focussed on Horizon 2020 - the EU's Framework Programme for Research and Innovation for 2014-2020.

The venue hosted the LSP roadshow featuring an own booth dedicated to the LSP projects. epSOS as one of them was part of the booth to perform "doctor shows" with live demonstrations as well as to distribute materials and giveaways.

The LSP stand was one of the most attractive booths also offering ice cream under the adjusted LSP theme "build connect taste". Not only Commissioner Neelie Kroes enjoyed one of our famous ice creams made out of the differently combined building blocks (ingredients, flavours) in Vilnius but also the booth was voted as best stand during ICT2013 in cluster 1.


Many people from around the world used the chance to get in touch with epSOS or to receive a personal update on the progress. Thus, the event can be considered as very useful in terms of marketing and networking for the project.

6th - 7th November 2013: ISHEP 2013

The ISHEP 2013 Conference took place in Dubrovnik (Croatia) from November 6th to 7th, 2013. It was co-organized by three different professional associations in the region – namely Croatian Society of Medical Informatics, Slovenian Society of Medical Informatics and HL7 Croatia, and delivered under auspices of Ministry of Health of Croatia and Slovenia. In addition, the conference was also supported by EFMI and HL7 Inc. The purpose of the conference was to discuss interoperability and standards in IT healthcare and trying to share some international experience in managing complex health IT projects, from the perspective of integration, health IT standards implementations, and business processes. It was the 3rd time in the last four years the event was organzied and this year was especially important, not only from the perspective of Croatia joining the EU, but also the expectation that during the conference there was the inauguration and formal establishment of PROREC Croatia, which is part of the Croatian Government eHealth agenda.

Croatia's NEPC Hrvoje Belani presented Croatian experiences regarding epSOS pilot implementation of cross border patient data exchange and integration with the national CEZIH project. CHIF managing director, prim. Siniša Varga, DMD, gave the status update on the National eHealth project in Croatia.
