conhIT 2018 focuses on digital transformation

The digital transformation has reached every area of the health system – be it big data for achieving important results in medical research, integrated IT systems for optimising processes in hospitals and medical practices, or robotics in patient rehabilitation for improving the quality of life. From 17 to 19 April 2018 visitors to conhIT – Connecting Healthcare IT in Berlin, Europe’s leading event for health IT, can get all the facts.

BERLIN, Germany - (HealthTech Wire / News) — conhIT, which successfully combines an Industrial Fair, Congress, Academy and Networking Events, targets decision-makers in hospitals and nursing care, politics, administrations and science as well as doctors, doctors’ networks and medical care centres. Held by the German Association of Healthcare IT Vendors (bvitg) and organised by Messe Berlin, the last event recorded around 500 exhibitors and 9,500 visitors and has become Europe’s leading event for the healthcare IT sector.

“IT has become integral to processes and assists the daily work of doctors and medical professionals. Besides offering many ways of digitising analogue processes IT provides an opportunity to overcome sectoral boundaries. Together with healthcare players we must build bridges that transcend these boundaries, above all to ensure consistent and interdisciplinary treatment of patients and to give them an active say in their treatment. To achieve this an open debate is needed between industry, politics, administrations, doctors and science on the demands, opportunities and risks involved in IT. Every year, conhIT provides the perfect platform“, said Jens Naumann, chairman of bvitg.

This year, under the heading of ‘conhIT 2018 – Transforming Healthcare’, an outstanding programme of congress events will be taking place. Key topics will include ‘The benefits of the digital transformation in healthcare to the medical profession’, ‘Patient-centred healthcare – using intelligent IT to overcome sectoral boundaries’, ‘The demands placed on a telematics infrastructure’, ‘Intelligent technology in hospitals – the convergence of medical technology and IT’, ‘Digital discharge management – ideally controlled processes’, and ‘The opportunities for digitisation in medical care’.
