Strategic questions (Continued)

  • How does it fit to CATs, HIMSS or other regional IHE events?
  • Basic decision between two variants:
  • Variant 1: Single (global) WS per year, hosted by a region responsible for 2/3 of the audience and a program which is principally global but with some regional hot-spots, with a single global organization team
  • Supporters: Charles, Jürgen, Mike, Stephane, Harm-Jan, Chris, Evert, Joyce, Lapo, Joan
  • Variant 2: Several (regional) WS per year, each hosted by a region with a regional program and different organizational teams (e.g. combined with regional CATs, etc.)
  • Supporters: -
  • Comments:
  • Stephane: Doing the WS combined with a non-IHE event (e.g. eHealth Week, etc.) we could draw additional audience to IHE
  • Harm-Jan: Agrees, bigger surrounding events (e.g. HIMSS, RSNA) are not preferred, because competition of the surrounding non-IHE event program with the WS program is a problem. Board meetings should be combined also to the WS to generate synergy.
  • Chris: More than 1 WS per year is too much. Associating with CATs should be kept definitely as an option, also to increase global attendance at a CAT. Agrees to Harm-Jan that bigger surrounding non-IHE events are a problem.
  • Decision: Variant 1


  • What purpose and character should it have to make sense?
  • Not discussed
  • Possible dates/locations?
  • Report of offline possibility check
  • HIMSS is coordinating of the program planning for the e-Health week, which has several stakeholders: EC, Dutch government, WoHIT, etc.
  • Sean Roberts is the right contact for this check. He routed us to his team members for working this out
  • Principally we were received friendly as a good enrichment of the e-Health week program
  • All variants are possible:
  • (1) Tightly coupled: embedded in e-Health week as own track during the period the e-Health week takes place
  • (2) Loosely coupled: before or after, etc.
  • Currently check, if meeting room is available
  • Pricing: All possible: bundled pricing, separate pricing
  • Principall decision of GDC community needed, followed by detailed negotiations
  • Discussion
  • Joyce: Will be included in all communication to this topic to support within HIMSS
  • Question: Tightly or loosely coupled
  • Stephane: Tightly coupled has the advantage to draw "foreign" people to IHE
  • Mike: Agrees, but pricing must include a reduced fee for "WS only"
  • Charles: Possible "program competition" is depending on the length of the WS. Especially between 8-10 conflicts are easily possible.
  • Decided preferences
  • WS length: 1,5 days
  • Decisions
  • The group empowers the provisional working team (Evert, Jürgen, Mike, Joyce, + open for others) with evaluating options and coming back with recommendations
  • Overlapping / Partial overlapping / Decoupled
  • Pricing options
  • Financial risks


Conclusion

  • Decisions:
  • 1) Continuation of World Summit concept: Single (global) WS per year, hosted by a region responsible for 2/3 of the audience and a program which is principally global but with some regional hot-spots, with a single global organization team
  • 2) Provisional working team continues to investigate e-Health week as candidate for WS 2016


Next Meeting

  • This discussion continues at: will be called in by the provisional working team
