More than 1,500 delegates will gather in Dublin's Citywest Convention Centre on May 26th and 27th next to discuss some of the main health issues facing society to-day.
The Future Health Summit is actually a series of 15 separate summits covering areas as diverse as mental health, medtech, oncology, wellbeing at work, clinical leadership, diabetes, eHealth and homecare.
The theme for the 2016 summit is 'Empowering the Patient; information, choice and accountability'.
The summit is now the must-be-at European event for present and future healthcare leaders.
International interest has been growing every year with a huge range of innovators and global leaders attending from over 30 countries this year.
One of the summits within the conference which is attracting most attention is the Festival of ehealth. This event is aimed at demonstrating Ireland's commitment to ehealth and how technology is delivered to health in Ireland.
Chaired by HSE chief information officer, Richard Corbridge, the event will feature a number of leading international speakers who will be addressing topics like security, how to deploy technology successfully, the latest clinical equipment and so on.
One of the key areas for discussion will be the electronic patient record system which Corbridge and his team hope to introduce to Ireland in the coming years.
