Ljubisav Matejevic will not only speak about the impact of e-health on a sustainable healthcare delivery in his presentation entitled “Global E-Health Forum: A Perspective” but will also chair the session on “Financing research & development, healthcare technology and e-health”.

“Challenges in healthcare are truly global: ageing population, pandemic and chronic diseases, shortage of healthcare workers and economic downturn. Our common objectives are to improve the quality of care, increase efficiency, reduce costs as well as errors and deliver collaborative care for prevention”, states Ljubisav Matejevic. “So, I am very pleased to have the opportunity to explain how our common goals can be bridged with e-health capabilities, i. e. electronic health records, e-health portals, telemedicine, home monitoring, decision support systems, e-prescriptions, knowledge management, business intelligence, e-reimbursement and so many more.”

According to Ljubisav Matejevic, “the necessary transformation of our health systems forges collaborative partnerships. I feel very honored to discuss new partnership, business, funding, and policy models within such a distinguished panel. And I will definitely invite the attendees from Russia, Ukraine and CIS to continue our dialogue at next year’s Global E-Health Forum, which is scheduled for October 11-13 in Hamburg, Germany.”
