Healthtech Summit 2021

What are the mega trends in healthcare? What is the role of hospitals and clinicians in driving innovation? How do we attract investments to healthtech innovation?

Denmark must be a beacon for health innovation and healthtech. To succeed with this mission, we need to address the importance of health innovation and healthtech, the Danish strengths within health innovation and healthtech, the challenges that the Danish healthcare system faces and how to best address those challenges. We need to learn from international successes and insights, and strengthen collaboration across private and public partners both nationally and internationally.

On September 30, a long list of public and private partners therefore invite you to join us for Healthtech Summit 2021. It will be an exciting day where both national and international representatives from the entire healthtech ecosystem present their perspectives on healthtech innovation. Healthtech Summit aims to create a greater political focus on healthtech and health innovation by showcasing concrete models, solutions and insights. It will help boost the innovative capacity of the Danish healthcare system, which then will be equipped to meet both current and future challenges.

The event is aimed at civil servants and politicians at state, regional and municipal level, research and educational institutions, businesses, persons working with healthcare, relevant special interest groups, investors and funds, patients and relative among others.

Looking forward to see you.

If Denmark is to succeed in increasing the use of new technologies and constantly innovate health tasks in hospitals, nursing homes and elder care, the key component is the staff.  

It is vital, that the future health professionals possess an extensive understanding of the technologies and of the importance of digitalization. It is also vital that the staff is included when decisions are made. 

This session focus on how we can create the best conditions for the use of new technologies and for structural and continuous innovation in the health sector by investing in the skills of the present and future staff. 

Nominees

The Healthtech Summit will also include the award show for people in the healthcare sector that enable clever health tech solutions through adoption. Please nominate who should be the winners in three categories: Frontline (including GPs, EMS, community health workers), specialist, cross-sector.
