Why the HIMSS Europe and Health 2.0 Conference is going to be unmatchable

Posted on: 02.11.2017

If you think healthcare needs new ideas and innovative approaches you should not miss the HIMSS Europe and Health 2.0 Conference conference on 27-29 May in Sitges (Barcelona, Spain). Both organisations joined forces in April and are now working together with the unique goal of improving healthcare with the use of information and technology. The conference will bring the best of both worlds: the HIMSS Europe expertise in healthcare digitisation and a Health 2.0 network of entrepreneurs and investors.

The most exciting digital health event of 2018 in Europe will be held in the beautiful coastal town of Sitges. It is expected to gather hundreds of passionate and innovative professionals across the whole healthcare ecosystem: from physicians, nurses, CIOs and CMOs to entrepreneurs, managers and business consultants. The goal is that this mix of skills and profiles can create –as Zubin Damania puts it- “those special collisions that result in new ideas, new approaches, and new inspirations in a space that desperately needs them.”

A “family” gathering in a great environment

The HIMSS Europe and Health 2.0 Conference organisers’ aim is for attendees to feel as if they were in a gathering of friends passionate about digital health. Ready to learn and to share experiences, to engage in interactive sessions and to participate in hands-on activities. The venue, Hotel Melià, will be booked-out entirely for the conference and the public will be able to enjoy the multiple areas of this beautiful location: from the conference rooms to the swimming pool and the gardens. 

The hope is that such familiar and comfortable atmosphere will inspire the beginning of new projects and collaborations. Let’s not forget the fact that HIMSS and Health 2.0 conferences have always had impressive and out-of-the box speakers. This time will not be different. Speakers and programme themes will be announced shortly. The organisers are working to bring panellists who will make the audience think, debate, and why not… laugh.

Are you ready for it? Mark these dates in your calendar for next year: 27-29 May 2018!
