Great Success for the
Digital Health & Wellness Summit @ 4YFN 2017
with 400+ global leaders from 20+ countries
Barcelona, 27 February 2017
The Digital Health & Wellness Summit (DHWS17) @ 4 Years From Now (4YFN) 2017 concluded providing opportunities for global companies, start-ups, governments, hospitals, investors, researchers and patients to develop joint digital solutions for healthcare challenges. DHWS17 congregated more than 200 international experts from leading companies such as Roche, Bupa, Adeslas, Axa, Orange Healthcare, McLaren, Privalia and Telefónica. Most of the innovative solutions presented at the conference will benefit from a year-long tailored support by the European Connected Health Alliance (ECHAlliance). DHWS17 is one step of ECHAlliance initiative towards development and impulse of creative ideas for healthcare challenges that will continue in future events across the ECHAlliance network of ecosystems and international gatherings, like eHealth Week 2017 (10-12 May, Malta) or the Estonian EU Presidency (July-December 2017).

The DHWS17 is developed by the European Connected Health Alliance (ECHAlliance) and we are pleased to partner again with 4YFN.
The objective of DHWS17 is to showcase the best innovators bringing digital technologies to improve healthcare delivery around the world. It creates opportunities for these innovators to meet end-users (clinicians and patients) and understand their needs and challenges.
The DHWS17 provides the matchmaking between the solutions suppliers and their customers (policy-makers, hospitals, insurers). It is also the main place for digital health startups to meet investors and create Digital health champions.
4YFN is the home of the growing global tech startup community, creating lasting connections among startups, investors and corporations.
4YFN is the startup event of Mobile World Capital Barcelona and GSMA Mobile World Congress, the premier event for the global mobile industry
DHWS17 partnering with DECIPHER PCP European Project
The DHWS17 attendees have the great opportunity to attend the final event of this EU project, which will be held the 1st of March during the MWC in Barcelona.
DECIPHER PCP procuring authorities procured, through a competitive process, R&D services to create a PHR EU Adapter and Data Collator for a given use case (Diabetes Type 2 patients).
The process used to procure these services was new to the public procurers, to the bidders and the contractors.
This event wants to present the R&D results delivered by the three selected finalists of DECIPHER PCP and at the same time analyze the procurement procedure used, confirm its relevance to the public administration and the technology providers and finally discuss its relevance in the nowadays environment where mHealth, outcome-based procurement and interoperability are key drivers to innovate in healthcare.
The seminar is organised in conjunction with the Mobile World Forum.
