March 22, 2017: Amsterdam as age friendly city
eHealth City Relay at the Amsterdam health & technology center (AHTC). The theme is “Amsterdam as age friendly city.” Inspirational initiatives that help our elderly to participate longer, will get a platform. Honest, and without any frills.
Join us and discuss with eHealth experts about how we all can learn from their ‘Brilliant failures’.
The eHealth City relay started on June 18, 2016. The aim is to exchange knowledge between cities on how to use ICT to improve self-reliance of elderly at home. The Relay is an initiative of Digitale Steden Agenda, the project ‘De zorg ontzorgd met ICT’, the ministries of VWS and EZ, ECP and ZonMW.
