ETIS and STL Partners are organising a workshop on 'Telcos in health' and would like to welcome you to Brussels on Friday, May 29, 2020 from 09:00 - 16:00.

The combination of improving health IT systems, more demanding patients, the growing maturity of analytics and AI, and rising cost pressure on healthcare systems are creating a tipping point for growth in digital health. As one of the least digitised sectors, with significant differences in needs and maturity across national markets, healthcare provides Telcos with a real and lasting opportunity to add value beyond core connectivity. 

However, healthcare has historically been a difficult market for Telcos to penetrate. Drawing on lessons from Telcos with 10+ years of experience in healthcare, this workshop will help others understand which part of the digital health market they should play in, and how.


The event is open to Telcos that are considering or are already developing a digital health business.
