Digital Health Days in Stockholm September 21-22

Digital Salutem would like to invite to all readers to attend the Digital Health Days, taking place in Stockholm on 21st & 22nd September, a conference aiming to shape the future of healthcare. There our Digital Health Influencer & Thought Leader, João Bocas is a confirmed speaker. 

Now in its 4th year, Digital Health Days is well established as one of Europe’s leading events in the field. The following statement by Anders Ekblom, chairman of Karolinska University Hospital holds truer than ever:


“When medicine and digitalisation meet we see how a disruptive force is created in the health care space.”

The disruptive force is in part driven by the healthcare consumer’s engagement in their own health and the theme for this year’s Digital Health Days is “the rise of the consumer”. Thus, topics covered include Rise of the Health Care Consumer presented by Robin Farmanfarmaian, Engaged patients is central in new health care system – to walk the talk by TED visionary and patient empowerment advocate Lucien Engelen and Rupert Dunbar-Rees and The Risk and Opportunity of Self-Reliant Patients for the Health Care System by Jarno Alastalo and Sebastian Sujka.

The important issues of security and personal integrity are covered in the session Digitalization of Industries and Calculating Risk by Daniel Akanine. If you are particularly interested in how different stakeholder’s shared and conflicting goals will impact the implementation of new solutions, you should come and listen to Faz Bashi from the Bay Area talking on the theme Risk & Opportunities for Life Science.

The two sessions The Paperless Hospital – A Safer Place (speaker Morten Elbæk Petersen) and Stop Wailing- Get Engaged by Kimberlie Cerrone will cover how digitalization can be implemented in practice both within the hospital and in the home setting.

Some of the latest digital health solutions for consumers on the market will also be presented and in another session,entrepreneurs will be asked bold questions about their new innovations by a team of investors in a “Dragon’s den”. To succeed in growing start-ups is to a large extent a matter of mastering a number of challenges in a business and regulatory environment adopted for yesterday’s solutions. The session Challenges for European Startups – Regulations, Recruitment and Sales with Jeremy Cummins as a speaker is a “must attend” sessions for business leaders in young digital health companies.
