European Digital Health Day

4th European Digital Health Day

Organized by Egon Zehnder, Pfizer, Sanofi, BARMER, SAP, J&J Innovation, and QIAGEN

European Digital Health Day – we connect global digital health innovators with invitation-only health care stakeholders. This year we propose to continue the debate in our discussions on: Big versus Smart data creating the future of better healthcare.

Big versus Smart - Data creating the future for better healthcare

  • What does Big Data in healthcare actually mean?
  • What role will it have to prevent, predict and cure diseases, improve quality of life and avoid preventable deaths?
  • App and software versus devices and hardware - what are the winning business models?
  • What partnerships are emerging to drive data based health care innovation?
  • How to fix the ever escalating costs of our health care systems?
  • What role can policy makers play to accelerate data driven change?

To inspire our thinking we will invite some of the world's premier digital health start-ups, and will add the perspectives of what some of the global giants in healthcare and healthcare IT are doing to change the sector with digital solutions.

European Digital Health Day

The most innovative digital health start-ups

From across Europe

We have systematically screened over 300 of the most novel digital health start-ups in the European Region. This year’s most innovative 25 ventures resulting from that first screening are currently undergoing detailed evaluations by our selection panel of experts being ranked for:

  • Big Data Relevance – in terms of fit to this year’s theme: Big versus Smart - Data creating the future of better healthcare
  • Innovation potential – how novel is the solution offered by the startup?
  • Unmet medical / health care system needs addressed – does the solution address a significant unmet need?
  • Economic benefit for the health care system – does the solution have the potential to make a positive economic impact on the health care system?

The teams to be invited will help enable a discussion around the true significance of Big Data derived healthcare solutions spanning such areas as cancer care, heart disease, personalized medicine, imaging, clinical tools and clinical trial management.
