D-A-CH Delegation to HIMSS21 in Las Vegas

August 9 - 13, 2021 | Conference

IMPORTANT: Due to continued travel restrictions and the resulting uncertainty around international guests’ ability to attend HIMSS21, we have made the difficult decision to cancel our European Delegation activities in Las Vegas next month. Your European Delegate package covering onsite activities for meals and workshops will be transferred to HIMSS22 in Orlando.

For more than 10 years, healthcare leaders from Germany, Austria and Switzerland have come together once a year for an unmatchable event: the HIMSS Global Health Conference and Exhibition. This HIMSS D-A-CH Community has grown immensely over the years and the annual gathering has developed into being the must-not-miss event for digital health professionals.

HIMSS21 is a hybrid event, offering both in-person and digital attendance options so everyone everywhere can join the most influential healthcare reunion of 2021. Build your network. Gain exposure to industry players from around the world. HIMSS21 is your global gateway, and we invite you to be part of it all. Join fellow changemakers at HIMSS21 to build a brighter global health future—together.

HIMSS European Communities will be uniting for their first in-person get-together since the Covid-19 pandemic. In response to the increased interest to connect, learn, and attend together as one continent, we have curated an interactive European delegations programme with wealth of joint and country/community level activities.

European Leaders' Exchange: Widening our Perspectives on Digital Maturity

Monday August 9th, 9AM-12:30PM - closed session for delegations

While digital transformation continues to be a key priority for health systems around the world, most evaluation models and standards only offer a hospital-centric and partial view of digital maturity. They fail to consider the contributions of other key stakeholders – including patients - to improved clinical and financial outcomes. Is the health system connecting clinicians and provider teams with citizens and patients, and enabling them to manage their own health and wellness using digital tools in a secure and private environment? Are decisions outcome-driven and informed by the latest and highest quality data? Is the interoperability level allowing seamless care coordination and collaborations? This European Leaders Exchange session will discuss the need to widen our perspective on digital maturity and introduce HIMSS’s new Digital Health Indicator (DHI), which integrates 4 key pillars in a model that can assess the digital maturity of the health system as a whole: Person-Enabled Health, Predictive Analytics, Governance and Workforce, and Interoperability.

Speakers of this workshop will be announced soon.
