Digital Transformation, The Future Path For Health

“EHealth by CEDIA”, the national network that promotes initiatives involving technology in favor of quality improvement and digital transformation in Healthcare, develops its first workshop in the ninth edition of the TICEC congress.

In this event, the regional articulation of the network and the efforts developed by CEDIA, through the socialization of the eHealth approach will be disseminated. The assistants will be able to have a global vision of the ECHO project, as well as global financing alternatives, to support the development of projects regarding the use of technology in health. On the other hand, important efforts developed by the Ecuadorian academy supported by CEDIA through its calls for competitive funds will be presented.

Finally, the last one of the SIGs with a One Health approach will be developed during the event, through the socialization of advances and perspectives that competent public entities have developed in matters of human health, food safety, and environmental health.
