SmartHealth ecosystem event

12th June 2019 @ 8:30 am - 12:00 pm

Member Exclusive

This event, hosted by ECHAlliance member VTT, discusses how turning opportunities into a success requires a combination of high-quality R&D in medical sciences, ICT, wearable sensors and in diagnostic technologies.

In the event, there will be several SmartHealth related industrial presentations on the latest technology achievements and a panel discussion on future opportunities within the SmartHealth sector.

Please note that though the event will be organized at the same time as the HIMSS conference, the participation at the event is free of charge and does not require participation in the HIMSS conference.

ECHAlliance Chair Brian O’Connor will be on the panel at 11.55 to discuss how data-driven healthcare can move from innovation to impact.
