The HIMSS & Health 2.0 European Conference will be held on 11-13 June 2019 in Helsinki, the capital of Finland.
The conference will bring the best of both worlds: HIMSS’ knowledge, expertise and thought leadership in healthcare digitization and Health 2.0’s network of entrepreneurs and investors, showcasing the latest cutting edge and innovative health tech solutions.
Over the course of the three days, the conference will focus on five overarching topics:
- Integrating health and social care
- Enabling homecare for healing and ageing in place
- Promoting a secure, ethical and actionable flow of data for prevention, population health management, personalized health and research
- Beyond the AI buzz: what can AI deliver today and are we really ready
- Opportunities and challenges of opening innovation
The three-day event is supported and organized in conjunction with a number of Finnish organizations, including: The Finnish Ministry of Social Affairs and Health, SITRA (The Finnish Innovation Fund), Business Finland, The City of Helsinki, The University of Helsinki, and more.
Antti Kivelä, director, capacity renewal, SITRA, said: “Finland is one of the leading countries in innovation, data and healthcare, and we look forward to sharing our journey at the conference next year.
HIMSS and Health 2.0 always put the patient and the citizen in the driver’s seat when discussing health and care. This is a vision we fully support in Finland, and is one of the reasons we are delighted to be hosting next year’s flagship digital health event”.
Bruce Steinberg, EVP for HIMSS International, said: “The Nordic region is one of the most socially advanced and digitally mature regions worldwide. Taking our conference to Finland is an absolute privilege, and will give many of us the opportunity to learn from groundbreaking digital health transformation first hand.
