Sessions to watch out for
With many of us starting to settle into a ‘new normal’, it’s fitting that this year’s conference will delve into the digital health innovations helping us cope with the challenges of 2020. From telemedicine, to digital therapies, breakthrough technologies, ecosystem development, and much more.
With so much on offer, we’ve put together our top pick of sessions you absolutely can’t miss:
Thu Nov 12, 2:15 PM - 2:35 PM (CET): Digital health in the focus of Germany's EU Council Presidency - Europe and Germany together on the move
With the advent of the Digital Health Reimbursement act last year, Germany is one of the most attractive markets in the EU to launch digital health solutions.
We’ll hear from Dr. Gottfried Ludewig, Director General Digitalisation and Innovation at the German Federal Ministry of Health on what the future has in store for digital health in Europe, and how the industry will form a key part of Germany’s EU Council Presidency.
Thu Nov 12, 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM (CET): Data & Innovation Driving the Future of Digital Health
COVID has rapidly accelerated the deployment of digital health solutions, and that makes the data which powers digital health more important than ever.
In this session, we’ll hear from global experts on the barriers preventing more coherent, cross-border collaboration and innovation in digital health, how we can overcome them, as well as what the future holds for the industry.
Fri Nov 13, 3:55 PM - 4:15 PM: The unfulfilled promise of digital medicine: lessons from Proteus Digital Health
Proteus Health was once seen as one of the hottest companies in the industry, valued at over $1.5bn.
