E-health is not only a technical development, but also a state-of-mind, a way of thinking, an attitude, and a commitment for networked, global thinking, to improve health care locally, regionally, and worldwide by using information and communication technology.

Some of our Nexters will provide first hand insights in to e-health solutions. Showcasing at this event are Best Beginnings, Buddy, FusedHealth and Mindapples.
Best Beginnings is a charity dedicated to ending child health inequalities in the UK. We are committed to giving every baby the healthiest possible start in life. We use innovative approaches to ensure families have the information and support they need to protect their children’s health.
Buddy helps users who have mental health problems take control of their own health care, and makes it easier for them to plan their own recovery.
Fused Health is a novel solution to simplify the search, organisation, and management of the increasing number of available apps, by embedding these within weekly routines and linked to personal goals. A key social aspect is sharing these goals online with friends and finding other users with similar weekly goals and routines.
Mindapples is a London-based social enterprise that trains and supports people to take better care of their minds, to increase their mental wellbeing, resilience and productivity. We provide engagement and training services to large businesses like Goldman Sachs and channel the profits back into our work in healthcare, education and local communities around the UK.
