How the ongoing mergers and acquisitions scramble and the frantic pace of digitalization of healthcare are reshaping traditional relationships between healthcare consumers and providers. Data-driven advancements are arriving in the form of both precision medicine and healthcare consumerism. We are starting to see redistribution of the in-person visits between traditional providers and emerging ones. Traditional healthcare is making big investments in digitalization programs that will enable consumers to get the best of both worlds, namely a virtual experience for routine healthcare and urgent care needs, and an in-patient experience for acute care needs. For a high-quality patient journey, these two worlds must be tightly integrated. Cost-effective and purposefully-designed, technology-enabled healthcare solutions can improve the well-being of millions of people and radically change the way services are delivered to patients. 


DIGITAL HEALTH NORDIC 2020 provides a unique look at the role of technology in advancing modern medicine, healthcare and wellness. At the epicenter of technological change, the event provides a chance for everyone in the healthcare industry to learn, network, and share in how tech can help provide better health outcomes.
You’ll hear from powerful keynotes, top technology companies, startups, established healthcare providers, pharmaceutical companies, hospitals, physicians, researchers, associations, regulators and other top thought leaders in the caregiving community as we explore multiple aspects of the world of digital health.
