Welcome

Dear Colleagues & Friends,

On behalf of the Taskforce Committee, it is indeed our privilege and honour to invite you to take part in the inaugural "eHealth Workforce Development Conference" (eHWDC 2018) which will be held between November 27 – 29, 2018 in Abu Dhabi, UAE. 

One of its kind; the vision behind this initiative is a sustainable digital healthcare ecosystem through a skilled and empowered local eHealth workforce within GCC countries.

This goal can only be achieved by creating an energetic ecosystem, where government recruitment agencies, higher education institutes, Healthcare training, and technology vendors work collaboratively with public and private healthcare organizations to develop curriculums, on-job training and compelling career paths that empower our young talents to seize the future opportunities in eHealth and lead the digital health transformation across the GCC region.

The scientific committee has planned an excellent program covering the major topics in eHealth. Lectures of highly valuable keynote speakers and workshops with many different themes will be included in the program to ensure a learning experience for all participants.

eHWDC 2018 will provide an excellent opportunity for trade exhibitors to present their latest and most up-to-date digital health transformation technologies, as well as their associated training and educational programs that aim to empower local talents to sustain the outcomes, realize the social responsibility, and the solid return of adopting such technologies. 

Besides the networking opportunities for the participants, exhibitors and speakers, eHWDC 2018 will also be a unique platform with the policymakers of each country in the GCC region.

We will do our best to make eHWDC 2018 an unforgettable one for all the participants.

We look forward to seeing you in Abu Dhabi.

Sincerely,

Mr. Hussein Al Bishi
