Delegates from More than 30 Countries to Share the Benefits of eHealth

BERLIN, March 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

The World of Health IT Conference and Exhibition (WoHIT), taking place in Nice from 2-4 April, presents a comprehensive international programme with 18 parallel and five plenary sessions, an mHealth symposium and a special Nordic Track as well as a dedicated French programme.

With the overriding theme of 'eHealth with Benefits: Documenting Clinical and Financial Returns', it will gather IT and healthcare professionals from more than 30 countries to discuss how IT can effectively improve the safety and quality of care for patients, as well as contribute to a better management of human and resources within the organizations.

One of the novelties this year is the Matchmaking experience, which allows the delegates to focus on the meeting rather than the showcasing. It will be the place to build strong business relationships during pre-arranged meetings with attendees from all over the world.

The conference will kick off on April 2nd with the mHealth Symposium focusing on 'Why mHealth should be a priority', during which different speakers will address key issues such as:

  • security
  • human data
  • solutions for mobile strategies

The conference will inaugurally host major delegations from Emerging Markets including:

  • The Kingdom of Saudi Arabiaand Brazil
  • The Maghreb region

A number of fascinating topics for the community will be discussed, such as the large number of investments in Health IT based on projects from Norway, the UK, France and Turkey.

The 'French Savoir-Faire' session will showcase local success stories such as:

  • Examples of ROI realized through HIT deployment
  • The pharmacy record being currently connected to hospitals
  • This year's host country, one of the largest European healthcare IT markets.

A theme that arouses great interest within the industry is The Continuum of Care Maturity Model (CCMM), which HIMSS Europe is presenting in scoop. Other significant highlights: Personalized Medicine, Patient Enabling and Big Data.

The Nordic track will consist of four sessions:

  • Swedish session: dedicated to a national initiative to enable patients to read their health record.
  • Danish session: on how to identify the best telemedicine solutions.
  • Finnish session: new innovations for health and local opportunities within personalized medicine.
  • Norwegian session: innovative eHealth solutions in mental health.
