HIMSS & Health 2.0 take the most influential digital health conference to Finland

Following a successful collocated event in Sitges in May 2018, HIMSS and Health 2.0 continue to strengthen their ties and choose one of the most innovative countries worldwide to host the 2019 conference.

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 digitisation 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 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,’ said Bruce Steinberg, EVP for HIMSS International.
