Educational Programming

Next-Generation Health—If Not Now, Then When?

HIMSS22 Europe offers curated educational sessions featuring renowned experts, focusing on real-world case studies, highlighting large-scale implementations, discussing outcomes-driven best practices, and sharing the latest data and evidence on digital transformation from around the region and beyond.

Sessions qualify for continuing education credits and will explore:

AI: From Evidence to Mainstream Practice

AI powers a radical move to precision healthcare, producing actionable insights through richer, more varied data. It drives precise service delivery, reduces clinical variations, and promotes disease prevention and improved outcomes. What are the use cases for AI and data analytics, and what are the blockers to wider adoption? Join us as we take you on an AI-powered patient journey, demonstrating how health and care are transformed at every step.

Digital Public Health

COVID-19 highlights the vital role digital healthcare innovation plays in disease outbreak. From combatting misinformation to advising the public, how can digital technologies help a public health system be effective for both communicable and non-communicable diseases? What does a data-driven public health system look like, and at what levels should it operate? Join us as we gain real-world insights and explore innovative advances from leading public health experts in Europe and beyond.

Digital Transformation Summit

As many governments prioritise digital health in COVID-19 recovery, how do we best evaluate outcomes, ROI and the digital capabilities of the global health ecosystem? Drawing on real-world evidence from the HIMSS Office of Scientific Research, this summit widens our perspective on digital maturity and focuses on four key pillars for success. Join us for cutting-edge discussions and learn how your European neighbours are tackling the challenge.

From Silos to Integrated Care

Healthcare is shifting from siloed services to tightly integrated care based on the needs of patients and populations, a move accelerated by COVID-19. A seamless flow of data via interconnected ecosystems is critical to a continuum of care. Join us for an in-depth look at the key drivers of integrated care, including policy, workforce and culture, financial incentives, interoperable infrastructures, analytics, patient safety in care transitions, and more.

Person-Enabled Health

Health systems face a growing burden of non-communicable diseases and ageing. Meanwhile, patients are increasingly consumer-oriented—doing more research and requesting more decision-making power. So how do providers cope with an army of Google-savvy citizens? Person-enabled health, one of the four pillars of the HIMSS Digital Health Indicator, is a predictive, personalised approach to health innovation. Join us to discover more, including the shifting attitudes, technology, data and analytics that underpin it.

Radical Health Outlook

How do we identify the healthcare innovations that are truly radical? Future technology might mean that your mattress tracks your vitals, your bathroom mirror scans for suspicious lesions, and your fridge clocks your calories. But is radical always digital? What about dogs that sniff out cancer or pigeons that read X-rays? Join these educational sessions to explore radical health innovations.

Solution Match

Can technology help you conquer the challenges you face? Solution Match strives to connect healthcare providers with the latest startups and innovators to find the best solution for every need. HIMSS22 Europe is offering this complimentary service to selected providers who are actively looking to do business. Join us as startups pitch their solutions and move closer to closing the deal.

Workforce Empowerment

While rapid digitisation during COVID-19 has been widely applauded, it has also exposed a digital skills gap in the workforce. How do we support clinicians and their teams to better understand, trust and capitalise on technology? And is technology the answer to the workforce crisis, clinician burnout, uncontrolled costs and safer care? Using practical case studies, join us to explore clinicians as early adopters who create and trial new technologies on the front line.
