Joint meeting on Semantics, the EEHRxF, and communities of (interoperable) practice



XpanDHxShareSNOMED internationalHL7 Europe and the CSCT asbl are happy to invite you to a joint meeting to share your experience around semantics and health data interoperability, as a prelude to the SNOMED CT in Europe May 22-23 Congress.

This joint meeting will take place on Tuesday 21st of May 2024 and be hosted at the Sint-Pieter University Medical Center, in the historical heart of Brussels, near the Porte de Hall and a ten minutes walk from the Midi station and SNOMED international Brussels meeting venue.

After a short introduction and updates on the advances of each project, we will explore together how we can engage the stakeholders and support each other to progressively truly achieve semantic interoperability, first in our healthcare local networks, then in our regions, our countries and finally in Europe with the support of the healthcare actors, including the citizens, and of the industry and how the policy makers can help drive the crystallization of this new ecosystem.
