More about the Call for Abstracts (deadline June 3rd): The CED Health Technology (HT) Challenge, a contest of ideas, experiences and projects is open to the whole healthcare community: BE and CE, healthcare organizations, research centers, universities, industry and citizens. The HT Challenge is an opportunity to share experiences and innovative solutions, that can inspire best practices in CE-HTM, through the involvement of all the actors of the health system and the use of technologies in their widest sense. The HT Challenge intends the word “technology” in its broader sense, as per WHO definition, including medical devices, health processes, tools and any sort of organized knowledge that can be useful to improve healthcare services. Through the HT Challenge the scientific committee will select the best works that will have space for an oral presentation during the parallel sessions of the congress. Moreover, all selected works will have the opportunity to be presented in the form of a poster and there is also a student paper competition.
Italy is proud to have been selected to host this event; after the great success of Hangzhou China and Sao Paulo Brazil, Rome is now ready to welcome all participants and invited guests. Social events and initiatives will add to the congress experience and we encourage everyone to spend a few more days with us in the Eternal City.
