Last week our very own João Bocas attended WHINN, Week of Health INNovation, in Odense, Denmark. João was invited to be a social media ambassador, during the three days, sharing event content and meaningful insights on healthcare innovation. We were very excited to work with other great people, Danielle Siarri, Christina Roosen, Stefan Buttigieg and Mercè Bonjorn Dalmau. And of course congratulations to Michaela Andersen and the team WHINN!

Regarding the social media, we achieved amazing results! Trending status in Denmark with #WHINN.

WHINN is one of a kind event, one week with conferences, side events, exhibitions, matchmaking and networking activities. The week is all about health,  innovation, new technologies and sustainable solutions, values that are also at the heart of the progress. This innovative health festival attracts people from all over the world including, stakeholders, decision makers, politicians, clinicians, end-users, students and people with general interest in healthcare and health technology innovation.

In short, WHINN is the ideal place to find new collaborations, opportunities and acquire new knowledge, inspiration and insight in the newest research and international trends.

This year’s WHINN topics were; connected Health, value based health and care and sustainable hospitals. All of which I can state are at the heart of our future healthcare system.

The conference covered many interesting talks and ideas, one of which was value based healthcare – how, why and for whom. The talk was given by Henrik Rindel Gudbergsen, an executive healthcare professional experienced in creating and managing organisational, R&D and business strategies within the areas of medical science, device technology, eHealth, digital transformation, and value-based healthcare.

On day three, Wednesday, João opened the conference day by setting the stage around hospital and innovation in the new health paradigm. He discussed current trends on wearable technologies and connected health.

WHINN  was not only a great place to acquire knowledge, gain global insights and contribute to improve healthcare and public health systems, is was also lots of fun! An example of this was meeting people with a similar mission #pinksocks.
