Come join the inspiring Nordic dialogues at Vitalis 2019

May 21, 2019 - May 22, 2019
As part of the Vitalis conference, the largest e-health event in Scandinavia, you can attend two very inspiring Nordic sessions.

At this year’s Vitalis conference in Gothenburg, Sweden, you have the exclusive opportunity to attend two sessions with very inspiring Nordic dialogues facilitated by Healthcare DENMARK.

On May 21, at 14:00-15:00, you can experience a Nordic dialogue about GP apps for patients. Denmark, Sweden, and Norway have all been working with apps that build on top of existing solutions in a new digital channel for communicating with the GP. The apps make it easy for patients to access their bookings, renew prescriptions, and have e-consultations with their GP. The session takes place in room A1 and will focus on the possibilities and challenges on how data can create value and benefits to both patients and healthcare professionals in Norway, Sweden, and Denmark. The speakers include Nanna Skovgaard, Head of Department at the Ministry of Health (Denmark), Daniel Forslund, Commissioner of Innovation at Stockholm County Council (Sweden), and Jon-Torgeir Lunke, Senior Strategy Advisor at the Directorate of E-health (Norway).

On May 22, you can join the session “Branding Nordic Healthcare Solutions – Smart Digital Health” at 10:30-11:30 in room F6. This session will present the result from the project “Branding Nordic Healthcare Strongholds”, which focuses on the impact, opportunities, and challenges for a future extensive Nordic collaboration in the field of Smart Digital Health. Speakers from four Nordic countries will present cases of innovative digital healthcare solutions, followed by a roundtable discussion about the future of smart digital health and how to further support potential Nordic partnerships. The session will be introduced by Svein Berg, Managing Director of Nordic Innovation and facilitated by Gerda Marie Rist, PhD, Chief Consultant at Healthcare DENMARK.
