We are happy to announce that HealthTech Europe is a proud networking partner of the 2021 edition of WIRED HEALTH – the Wired event dedicated to exploring how digital technology is transforming the world of healthcare. The 4th edition will be a two days business digital conference to be held within 17-18 March 2021. Full of amazing speakers, presentations, interviews, all for the current and future of medicine, health and technology.
The theme will be Proximity, to indicate two fundamental aspects of innovation in health: the proximity to the patients (meeting all their needs) and between different disciplines to create real progress.

2020 as a whole is the latest demonstration of how fundamental digital technologies are to the development of Health and Healthcare Systems. It is fitting, then, that Wired Health – the Wired event dedicated to exploring how digital technology is transforming the world of healthcare – is set to return for its fourth year on 17 and 18 March 2021.

The event will be held digitally with the introduction of a new element: Q&A sessions and in-depth discussions, in dedicated rooms, with experts from the world of healthcare and innovation. Discussion will be the distinguishing feature of the 2021 edition of Wired Health, the theme of which will be Proximity, referring to two key aspects of innovation in healthcare: close attention to the patient (meeting all of their needs) and a close working relationship between different disciplines to foster real progress.

Wired Health is a business conference during which both Italian and international speakers will take turns outlining the main trends in the field of Health. An initiative aimed at managers, public administrators, scientists and researchers, professionals, policymakers and end users who want to be kept up to date on how and to what extent digital technology is transforming the healthcare sector, from its business models to new research and products, and consequently the choices available to patients, managers, doctors and citizens.

The two-day event promises discussions of a great many topics, including telemedicine, the use of virtual and augmented reality for medicine, practical applications of artificial intelligence in clinical, diagnostic and research settings, and the management of big data in healthcare, as well as its interoperability and the protection of privacy. But there will also be explorations of new business models in the healthcare sector, as well as its digital transformation and that of research and innovation: from precision medicine to Value-Based Healthcare.
