  • Poles apart or the need to act?
  • Implementing the health telematics infrastructure and eHealth
  • Regional health care in the age of demographic change
  • Improving the efficiency of processes - added value through IT in modelling and management

Papers must be submitted during the period from 17 October to 18 November 2016. It is not planned to extend the deadline. Companies who wish to submit a paper must be registered as exhibitors at the Industrial Fair. For further details and in order to register please visit www.conhit.com.

The advisory committee decided on the main topics at a meeting on 28 September in Berlin. More than 50 committee members are working to organise a quality programme of outstanding events and making every effort to satisfy the audiences' needs.
