Neelie Kroes: Digital innovation isn’t just for the young! | Hanson Zandi News | Scoop.it

While I was there I got a catch-up on our European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing. One of the groups directly involved showed me some of their 37 good practices they’ve been collecting for integrated care. Those good practices are already bringing “real life” solutions that help around 13 million people; further toolkits based on them could reach 20 million citizens within the next 2 years.

 

Plus, many of the most creative eHealth innovations come from smaller companies. Our SME eHealth Competition to find the best eHealth ideas among those smaller companies, attracted an incredible 212 applications.
