The event is taking place in the framework of ENGAGED, a thematic network in the field of active and healthy ageing. It aims at discussing regional practices for eHealth that encompass clinical issues, the workforce, community engagement and business models. Presentations and discussions will particularly highlight solutions and tools for best practices on implementation and upscaling. Background Information •

Regional innovation clusters Kent has been selected as a United Kingdom national pioneer from over 100 expressions of interest: thirteen other sites have received the award. The opportunity provided by being a pioneer site is quite unique. It offers the opportunity to redesign the region's care system by putting the patient or the citizen at the centre, incorporating appropriate technology and do this at pace and scale. • The future of the European Innovation Partnership in supporting these solutions and tools The presence of European Commission representatives at this event will provide an invaluable opportunity to explore the most effective way to coordinate efforts. This will ultimately help to deliver better healthcare and more effective eHealth services by putting the citizen at the centre.

The focus will be on both present and future eHealth tools and solutions.
