Future50, supported by IBM Watson Health, is a new initiative by HIMSS Europe that aims to identify and bring together the top 50 Healthcare IT leaders in Europe. This community will work alongside HIMSS Europe and our partners to overcome current and future systemic health challenges.
The HIMSS Europe Future50 is who we should look to for the future of healthcare today. They influence the potential of digital health to improve healthcare for all of us. The Future50 community will be encouraged to share expertise, collaborate over borders and foster innovation both individually and as a group.
HIMSS Europe will provide the community with a platform to achieve this and with a mechanism to promote the eHealth agenda at a European level. The community members are expected to attend quarterly online meetings as well as occasional dedicated activities within the existing HIMSS Europe framework. Community members receive recognition in HIMSS Europe media and events. They also receive HIMSS Europe Individual Membership for a year, as well as complimentary passes to various HIMSS Europe or UK events year-round.
The nomination process will consider individuals at all levels including c-suite, front line professionals, patient advocates, policy makers, entrepreneurs and many more who are at the forefront of leading the e-Health agenda. The individuals nominated must be based in a European country.
Nominations can be submitted by anyone from healthcare providers, governments, not for profit organisations as well as IT vendors nominating their customers. Individuals can self-nominate or can be nominated by someone who is familiar with the nominee’s professional background. The nomination must include short descriptions (100-200 words) of the nominee's proven excellence in a minimum of three out of the four following areas:
