HIMSS19 Call for Proposals: Nordic Workshop at HIMSS19

Have your voice heard, lead the discussion, and influence the future!

The theme for this year's Nordic Workshop is "Interoperability leading to health information exchange". Based on the previous Community discussions at HIMSS18 in Las Vegas in March and at HIMSS Europe 18 and Health 2.0 Conference in Sitges this May, the Nordics will turn their focus to showcase their achievements at the HIMSS19 Global Conference & Exhibition, as well as deep dive into cross border information exchange practices and semantic interoperability challenges.

Are you working on a project or solution that can help Nordics’ highly ambitious mission to reach interoperability at the highest level: exchange data and use it across the borders? Check out our Call for Proposals and submit your idea here.

Priority will be given to proposals submitted early in order to create the Delegation Programme as soon as possible. No proposals will be accepted after 1st November and HIMSS reserves the right to close the Call for Proposal earlier if Programme is complete.
