DMEA 2019: International Exchange on Digital Health

DMEA - Connecting Digital Health9 - 11 April 2019, Berlin, Germany.
DMEA (formerly conhIT) is the industry's main event for digital healthcare. In that context, an international exchange of experiences and networking beyond national borders also plays an important role. From 9 to 11 April 2019, in partnership with Germany Trade & Invest (GTAI) and the business promotion organisation of the German government, an international programme of discussion and talk formats will be taking place in the Hub 3 event area. Topics will include the market potential of various digital applications and promoting exports in the field of digital health. Various formats will also encourage a direct exchange with international startups. "This industry has a huge innovative drive and the German market offers a wide range of business opportunities. The rapid growth of many foreign markets offers many opportunities for domestic companies. At the same time the German healthcare system can benefit from companies who are already operating successfully in other countries and are now able to market their innovative solutions in Germany too," said Julia Pietsch, senior manager, Digital Health at GTAI.

In addition to the Hub 3 programme, the DMEA Congress sessions and other event formats will also address topics and subjects in English. Simultaneous interpreting into English will be provided at all the sessions. International trade visitors can also take part in English-language tours which look at the German healthcare market. "Whether blockchains, AI or personalised medicine, more and more new technologies are being implemented in various forms in international healthcare systems. As Europe's largest event for health IT we see it as our task to strengthen the interdisciplinary and international transfer of knowledge. By examining best practices representatives from Germany and other countries will be able to to exchange views and learn from each other," said Jens Naumann, chairman of the German Association of Health IT Vendors (bvitg), the organisers of DMEA.

Stefan Radatz, general manager, Central & Eastern Europe and managing director of Cerner Health Services Deutschland GmbH, a regular Gold Partner of DMEA, also emphasised the importance of an international exchange for improving healthcare systems in Europe: "In Denmark, besides applications for monitoring patients daily at home there has been access to a health portal since the Nineties. In Estonia around 98 of the population have an electronic health file. ePrescriptions are also in nationwide use there. Austria has implemented an electronic health file (ELGA) system. In all these cases uniform standards ensure frictionless data communications. By creating open and secure infrastructures for exchanging and making intelligent use of all accessible health data Germany can also make use of the added value that digitalisation offers. Looking beyond national borders is therefore not only inspirational, it is also essential for advancing our healthcare system. DMEA provides the ideal platform for such an exchange."
