  • Digital Medicine & Care
  • Healthcare
  • Politics & Regulation
  • Technology & Interoperability
  • Prospects
  • Careers

A quiz on Germany's federal elections and sessions on digital health apps and digitalization in hospitals

This year, Federal Minister of Health Jens Spahn will open DMEA again with a keynote speech. Health policy issues will also be the subject of the next item under the heading 'Who votes for digitalization?'. The quiz will take a look at the various goals and positions being staked out ahead of the federal elections.

Other highlights will include a keynote speech by Galia Barkai, head of the Telemedicine Innovation Hub at the Sheba Hospital in Israel, and a look back at the Hackathon #WirvsVirus under the aspect of open innovation. Other topics and events will include digitalization in hospitals in 2021, a year of key events, and an interim assessment after six months of digital health applications (DiGA).
