I had the pleasure to be invited as faculty to the 4th European Congress on eCardiology and eHealth, in Berlin, 8-10 november 2017. I will try to resume in the following 3 posts what impressed me the most concerning the lectures, devices and posters.
So concerning the lectures, below are the ones that attracted my attention. I further invite you to consult the #ecardio2017 website for the full presentations (plus take a look at the photos attached):
• The inaugural session talked about advances in mobile health, and was chaired by Enrico Caiani and Hugo Saner. Enriching and inspiring session.
• « Business models and solutions » session, chaired by Paul Dendale and Ines Frederix: Teleconsultation works, concluded Mr. Huyghe from Philips.
• « Instant messaging and selfies: the future of telemedicine ? » by prof. M.Mars: whatsapp and selfies use for medical purpose is very usual but raises ethical concerns regarding patient consent and private data. Would you use it in your daily practice?
• « Virtual cardiac emergency unit: the use of mobile technologies in acute cardiology » presented by E. De Kluiver:« don’t come to us, we come to you » (patients are seen by specialized nurses and treatment is conducted by hospital cardiologist: diuretics, inotropes).
