What opportunities does patient-generated data give? Are there limitations or disadvantages?

- One thing is for sure, today the patients are superior! They are driving the development of using technology in health, says Professor Eirik Årsand at the Norwegian Centre for E-health Research.

Our pre-conference took place in Oslo Spektrum on November 11, which is also the venue for EHiN 2019.

With us at this workshop were some of our partners, researchers, experts, technology providers and authorities.
