HeartMan event on self-management technology for chronic heart failure, April 24, Brussels

Dear ,

The HeartMan project consortium has the pleasure of inviting you to a half day symposium on self-management technology for chronic heart failure, organised on 24 April 2019 in Brussels. This symposium will cover all aspects of self-management technology for chronic heart failure. The setup of the HeartMan project will be outlined, and the findings of the HeartMan trial will be reported, with one of the participants in the HeartMan clinical trial discussing his/her personal experience of the system. In addition, the symposium will cover political aspects and commercial perspectives linked to e-health and self-management technology.

HeartMan is a project co-funded by the Horizon 2020 Framework Programme of the European Union, with the aim of designing a personal health system to help patients with Congestive Heart Failure to manage their condition. The project, running from 2016 to 2019, aims to provide accurate advice on disease management adapted to the specific situation of each patient, in a friendly and supportive way.

We are inviting engaged speakers with scientific, policy and commercial perspectives. As such, we present an inspirational afternoon of insights into e-health, chronic heart failure, and self-management.

Looking forward to meet you there.
Mitja Luštrek, project lead, on behalf of the HeartMan consortium.
