In order to respect the health and well-being of the healthcare IT community we feel it would be best to hold this conference digitally. Many of our attendees are working on the front lines of this pandemic and there are still many unknowns about our ability to travel and congregate in groups in the coming months. This digital event will enable all of us to still share and learn from one another with valuable interactive content.

Each day we will present a keynote and a track including 3-4 interactive sessions on topics including Critical Care, Digital Maturity, Data Privacy, AI and Innovation. See more detail on our themes and topics.

Now more than ever, we recognize the needs of our constituents to continue learning and to earn credit towards these efforts for a variety of certifications. In addition to CAHIMS and CPHIMS credits, we are working with several governing bodies to accredit this event and will post more information as it becomes available.

Yes! We will have a virtual 3D exhibition hall so you can still find the solutions you need to help support your healthcare IT needs.

Absolutely, no conference would be worth attending if it weren’t for the networking opportunities! We will provide these opportunities through the platform’s robust chat functionality which will allow you to connect with your peers, solution providers and speakers.

Nope, just a computer with an internet connection will do the trick.

Everyone who has already registered and paid for the 2020 HIMSS|Health 2.0 European Conference will get a credit to our face to face in June 2021 in Helsinki and complimentary access to the Digital European Event from 7-11 September 2020. More information on registration will be announced soon.

This is the current plan and we cannot wait to see everyone in person again! Save the dates of 8-10 June 2021 in Helsinki, Finland for our next event.

Yes! The great thing about digital events is you don’t have to be there for the live session if the time does not work for you. An on-demand version will be made available to those who cannot attend during the live days. And those attending the live days will be able to also view on-demand content at a later time.

Cancellation of your reservations, if already booked, should be made directly with the hotel or airline.

A variety of opportunities are available to current sponsors and exhibitors. Your sales contact will be in touch to discuss.

We would love to talk to more about your involvement in our digital event, please email Ivana at for more information.
