On the 1st and 2nd February 2016, Tetras svetovanje d.o.o., the only Slovenian partner of the AdriHealthMob project, organized an international conference and meeting, open to project partners, representatives of the media and general public.

The topic of the first day was the accessibility of high-quality health services in the Adriatic-Ionian region, which was particularly interesting for the general public, which had the opportunity to discover the latest findings in the field. Featured speakers included experts in the field of medical ICT and health, the partners of the project involved in the realization of the AHM portal platform and representatives of institutions that could become potential users, so the presentation was very interactive and allowed mutual exchange of views.

The first part of the conference was about ICT healthcare in Slovenia. The topic was presented by Slovenian experts, involved in projects about e-health (Ms Katarina Kralj from the Ministry of Health of Slovenia), deployment of the national backbones for e-health (Mr Samo Drnovšek from Marand) and a practical example of good practice that ICT has in the management of chronic kidney disease (Dr Bojan Vujkovac from General Hospital Slovenj Gradec).

Afterwards, the partners presented the AdriHealthMob project: Dr Senad Begić, from the Institute for Public health of Montenegro, introduced the montenegrin electronic system of immunization, while the AHM project portal platform was presented by some of the partners: Dr Dorjan Marušič and Mr Peter Mihelj from Tetras, the partner who was in charge of realizing the platform, Mr Raffaele Conte from the Italian National Research Council, who realized the iTrain platform and Mr Ilir Qose, from the Lead Partner COOSS Marche, who talked about the user monitoring system.

The third part was dedicated to the role of ICT in granting access to quality health services. Dr Luigi Bertinato, from Verona's Local Health Authority, talked about the implementation of e-prescription in both public and private health sector; Mr Radoš Lipičar from Smart Com presented CareSignal, an open platform for tele-service; from Parsek, Mr Matija Klasinc introduced the design of clinical pathways, while Mr Vedran Boškić presented an example of good practice of IHE Adria; Dr Ivan Pristaš, from the Croatian National Institute of Public Health, talked about interoperable registries of patients, giving an overview of PARENT JA results; Dr Denis Pavliha, from SRC Infonet, discussed the extension of hospital information system toward the patients through the use of web applications; and Mr Peter Pustatičnik, from Telekom Slovenia, introduced a plan for establishing a smart system of integrated health and home care.

The participants concluded the first day with a round table focused on the correlation between ICT and accessibility and quality of health services. Afterwards the project partners attended a tour of Piran and were received by the Mayor Peter Bossman in his offices. The evening continued with a social gathering, which strengthened informal links between partners.

The second day was entirely dedicated to the meeting of the management board (Steering Committee) and the technical team (Joint Technical Unit) of the project. The representatives of the partners reviewed the state of the project activities and achievements. This was followed by a discussion aimed to define future activities and actions to be carried out in order to successfully complete the project.

A journalist specialized in the field of health, from the local newspaper Primorske novice, attended the event. The project Leader of Tetras, Dorjan Marušič gave a statement for her article: "The different types of collected data will be the foundation for granting fast and high-quality access to the information about the treatments (especially for elderly and chronically ill patients) and for ensuring service integration on the Adriatic macro-region level. Patients want quality and easily accessible advice, they seek a second opinion, weather they live in villages or in cities. The project will create the base for establishing the guidelines of a comprehensive strategy for health and care services, to ensure that the long distance or remote location will no longer be an obstacle for patients".
