Healthcare Estates & IFHE-EU (International Federation of Hospital Engineering)

NEW to 2019: Healthcare Estates is delighted to announce we will be hosting the bi-annual European Congress for Healthcare organised by IFHE-EU, alongside the Healthcare Estates Conference and Exhibition.

ECHE is now the biggest event of its kind in the European region and is seen as the most important platform for the discussion of hospital-specific technical and associated managerial topics. A fantastic collaboration with Healthcare Estates 2019.

IFHE-EU is a non-governmental and non-political organisation that was founded in 2005 in Strasbourg and unites the national associations of hospital engineering in Europe. NEW for 2019

At this moment IFHE-EU consist of national associations of twelve countries: Belgium, Germany, Finland, France, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Austria, Norway, Italy, Denmark, Switzerland and Spain. Other European nations are also considering joining to expand the federation and share knowledge and learning.

European congress
One of IFHE-EU`s most important tasks is to organise a bi-annual European congress for healthcare (ECHE). The ECHE is now the biggest event of its kind in the European region and can be seen as the most important platform for the discussion of hospital-specific technical and associated managerial topics. Over and above the ECHE congresses IFHE-EU has working groups for healthcare specific engineering issues like energy saving, ISO9001 etc.

Objective
The objective of IFHE Europe is to gain an overall view of the challenges facing European healthcare policy and practice and the associated technology and organisation-specific topics in particular. This will be undertaken whilst taking into account the particular circumstances in each country.
