Between dream and reality, digital health never stops transforming itself and announcing that it will transform health. Is it a reality or a future unfulfilled promise?
Is e-health this announced oasis or a mirage at the heart of the health system?
These are the questions that the 17th edition of the e-Health University Summer Camp sought to answer, live from the city of Castres, on the initiative of Castres-Mazamet Technopole, an innovation support structure for the economic development of the region.
86% of French people say they are in favor of the development of e-health and 71% of them say they have already used e-health tools and services.
E-health is increasingly being presented as THE answer, or one of the answers, to the challenges facing France and many other countries in the face of an aging population, the rise of chronic diseases, difficulties in accessing care, medical deserts and the health crisis. Its deployment would allow us to better support the transformation of healthcare systems in the face of public health issues.
However, e-health is also a mirror that highlights, or even exacerbates, the disparities and flaws in the healthcare system: inequality of access to digital tools, security of sensitive data, ethics, and the legal and regulatory framework.
The theme of this 17th edition of the University of e-Health’s summer camp is to offer a cross-section of views on this subject, and to present new approaches to disentangle the true from the false and [re]give meaning to digital health.
The benefit of a continuous exhibition during the two days of the event in the meeting place of the public.
The eHealth University invites you to meet professionals of the sector through pre-booked one-on-one meetings of 30 minutes, speed-meeting style.
This year, the eHealth Connection will be organised by ABE (advanced business events), the European leader in the organisation of business conventions, supported by the EEN Enterprise Europe Network and the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of the Occitania Region.

In 2022, the University of e-health wanted to be as close as possible to citizens and businesses and for this celebrated its 16th anniversary in the premises of the Tarn Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Castres and at the Municipal Theater of Castres. A relocation that seduced the participants.
So see you at the 2022 summer school in the heart of Castres!
