We will move beyond technology-based innovation and move towards service-based innovation because of its ability to address the continuum of care and support the end-user – both doctors and patients – in a meaningful way.
In 2018, HIMSS was the main sponsor of Egypt's first healthcare hackathon featuring ten startups, world-class mentors, and industry veteran panel discussions. This created a ripple effect in the Egyptian ecosystem where many of these opportunities now exist for healthcare innovators.
Find the reason you want to work in healthcare innovation and look it in the eye. It is a tough industry, and there are many paths you can take. Make sure you know why you are here, and ensure that your goals align with the place where you work.
At HIMSS, our vision is to realize the full health potential of every human, everywhere. Be part of the community that’s transforming the global health ecosystem with courage, curiosity and determination.
