DMEA Newcomer Award: The Search is on for New Ideas in Digital Healthcare

DMEA - Connecting Digital Health13 - 15 April 2021, Berlin, Germany.
More efficient, digital and patient-friendly! Tomorrow's healthcare system promises great things. And to ensure this becomes reality a fresh impetus and creative ideas are needed. Those are exactly the things that DMEA - Connecting Digital Health, Europe's largest event for health IT is honouring again next year with the DMEA Newcomer Award.

Starting now, university graduates are invited to submit their final papers on subjects dealing with digitalisation in the healthcare system. The awards will be presented in two categories, for Bachelor's and Master's degree papers. Prize money totalling up to EUR 2,000 awaits the winners.

The full range of digital health topics

The competition is open to graduates of any degree course who submitted their final paper after 24 February 2020. The only condition is that it examines a digital healthcare topic. Papers demonstrating practical relevance in specific cases are of particular interest, thereby showing how IT can be employed to improve healthcare.

Among this year's award-winning topics were an algorithm for optimising patient transport to hospitals and an interactive musical cushion for autistic children.

After assessing the entries, a selection panel of experts representing the partners of DMEA will choose the eventual winners. They will receive their awards at DMEA 2021, which will take place from 13 to 15 April 2021 in Berlin.

Entries for the DMEA Newcomer Award 2021 can be submitted from now until 15 Feb. 2021 at: https://www.dmea.de/Nachwuchs/Nachwuchspreis/
