Crowds at the eHealth conferences are always diverse. They include academic researchers, industry representatives and decision makers from governmental and healthcare organizations. The event consists of The Scientific Conference where papers are presented and the Digital Health Conference where research is applied to medical products.

This year’s motto: “Biomedical meets eHealth – From Sensors to Decisions”

As usual, the conference will kick off with an opening keynote and awards ceremony. The conference includes talks and presentations on topics like “Deep Learning in Imaging” or Austria’s Electronic Health Record. Furthermore, workshops on information and communication technologies in healthcare are giving visitors a more hand-on approach. Overall, the conference not only introduces the new technologies that are being used in healthcare, but also addressing the problems that come with it. Crucial points like data security and usability are dealt with in the light of the new technological advances.

The first day will close with the Startup Slam, in which our Head of Business Development Philip Meier will be pitching. Other competitors include CubileHealth, eedoctors and Medicus. Our goal is to convince a jury of our business idea. Jury members include representatives of the AIT and UNIQA Ventures. The first prize is a ticket to the HIMSS 2019 in Orlando, Florida. The other prizes are consulting workshops with renowned consultants. Best of luck to Philip!
