HIMSS is bringing together healthcare and IT leaders who are navigating an extraordinary opportunity to advance the digital transformation of Europe’s health systems. 

Major changes prompted by the COVID-19 pandemic — including billions of euros invested in healthcare modernization, national regulatory initiatives and the proposed EU legislation for the creation of the European Health Data Space — are making the region one of the world’s most attractive and dynamic markets for digital health.

“This year’s epicentre of digital health is the 2022 HIMSS European Health Conference & Exhibition, 14-16 June in Helsinki, where hospitals, governments and innovators will look into delivering the next generation of healthcare services, now,” said Armin Scheuer, VP and Executive Director EMEA at HIMSS. “HIMSS22 Europe features sessions from more than 120 health experts and the best-ever exhibition of health tech solutions to tackle the industry’s challenges.”

The EU is investing €673 billion as part of the Recovery and Resilience Facility, with billions reserved for digital health transformation.

At HIMSS22 Europe, healthcare leaders will join efforts to make the European Health Data Space a reality. The proposed legislation is an important step toward making digital health a central pillar of the healthcare systems across the EU, and various initiatives at HIMSS22 Europe aim to bring the European Health Data Space to life.
