Digital opportunities are redefining a new frontier for patients, doctors and hospitals to secure the future of cancer care: one of greater sustainability, increased patient-centeredness and outcomes, more efficient health care delivery systems and pathways to discover and develop treatments.

In light of the recent European Commission communication on enabling the digital transformation of health and care under the digital single market, this interactive session examines how European healthcare systems could evolve towards greater sustainability with a smarter and more meaningful use of data across discovery and care pathways.

Together, we will look at policy options that could unlock the evolution of eHealth in the European Union to the benefit of patients, healthcare professionals and society.
