Nordic Education Programme: The Nordic Way – Think Beyond Interoperability!

The Nordic workshop will take place at the Loews Sapphire Falls Resort at Universal Orlando on Monday, February 11.

Following the previous Nordic Community discussions at HIMSS18 in Las Vegas (March 2018) and at HIMSS Europe 18 and Health 2.0 in Sitges (May 2018), the Community will turn their focus to showcase their achievements at the HIMSS19 Global Conference & Exhibition, as well as deep dive into interoperability and cross border information exchange.

BUT – the discussion will be driven in a “Nordic Way”; shifting the focus from technical interoperability to the needs of real life: practical solutions, service concepts, business models, ALL for the benefit of the entire ecosystem with the Nordic patient at the core.

In addition to local and national initiatives, cross-border solutions for data exchanges and collaborative approaches to unlocking private data for public use will be on the agenda. We look forward to exchanging ideas within the Community as well as discovering innovative ideas from our US colleagues.
