Building on a very successful eHealth 2008 conference, the aim of eHealth 2009 is to bring 
together experts from academia, industry and global healthcare institutions to stimulate cutting-
edge research discussions, share experience with real-world healthcare service providers and 
policy makers as well as provide numerous business opportunities.

Despite substantial budgets spent on eHealth in recent years, existing healthcare services do not
sufficiently address the issue of patient privacy, trust, quality-assurance nor the potential in
e-learning and web minding for delivering 21st century healthcare system for European citizens. 
The key topic of eHealth 2009 is investigating a realistic potential of the Internet in providing
evidence-based medical advice and quality-assured education for patients to improve wellbeing 
of European and global citizens.
