There are a lot of things going on in the Belgian Digital Health scene. We’ve bundled the key events from the past week here:
- On Monday Belgian Startup Epihunter kicked off its Indiegogo campaign on the International Epilepsy Day. Epihunter is developing a solution to make epileptic absence seizures visible. Check out the coverage Epihunter received from VRT here (NL).
- On Monday as well, RIZIV announced that the long awaited e-prescription application PARIS is available. PARIS is targeted at occasional prescribers without an EMR and specialists outside of the hospital. Read more about PARIS here (NL) or here (FR).
- On Tuesday J&J announced that it will open a JLabs site in Belgium. JLabs is an incubator that will host up to 30 life science startups. J&J already has a number of JLabs incubators all over the world with the one in Beerse being the first one in Europe.
- On Friday Maggie De Block announced the launch of an mHealth validation pyramid to guarantee the quality and safety of medical apps. Read more about it here (NL) or here (FR).
