The aim of the summit is to generate a discussion about the challenges and solutions related to the future use of health data, the upcoming European Health Data Space, and many other health data-related issues.
Digital transformation is undoubtedly ongoing in the healthcare sector. However, it still lacks the right type of support, which can jeopardise the success of this process including the future European Health Data Space. The DHE Summit aims to scrutinise the drivers and barriers of digital transformation through different lenses.
DHE Summit is a unique event which offers a very complex, multifaceted and diverse approach to the facts and challenges of digital transformation. Sessions will zoom on infrastructure needs such as cloud computing, data connectivity and interoperability across borders. Experts will discuss about the ‘human factors’ of the process such as capacity building or citizen empowerment. A panel will be dedicated to expected promising results and currently fatal diseases which medicine will be able to soon overcome thanks to health data-based research and innovation.
Last but not least of all, a representatives of the European Commission will share with the audience what the future perspectives are and how all the efforts from different stakeholders will come into place to implement a common European vision on health data.
The Summit will bring together EU policymakers, funders, digital health experts and other stakeholders for inspiring and forward-looking debates. We are particularly honoured to have with us Finnish former Prime Minister Esko Aho as a keynote speaker, opening the Summit on 28th September. Prominent keynote speakers from the European Commission include Ioana-Maria Gligor (DG SANTE) and Marco Marsella (DG CNECT). Topics will range from real-life transformation through digital health (Day 1), to empowering citizens (Day 2) and scaling up innovation through health data (Day 3), presented by 40 speakers and panellists from diverse backgrounds.
The DigitalHealthEurope partners would love to share their learnings, findings, and proposed policy recommendations with a broad audience of stakeholders. Discussions and presentation will look at twinning examples, the European Health Data Space (EHDS), and many other topics.
