#FH2019 - The Leading International Conference Dedicated to Digital Health - Kicks Off Today in Berlin

13 - 15 November 2019, Berlin, Germany.
This year the German capital will host again the main conference dedicated to Digital Health: Frontiers Health 2019, which will be held from the 13th to the 15th of November in the prestigious location of AXICA, a stone's throw from the Brandenburg Gate.

Digital Health is progressing at a great pace. This is demonstrated by this year's major IPOs - first and foremost Livongo and Health Catalyst in the USA (both will be present at the conference), a turning point for the sector. This is confirmed by Marc Sluijs, DigitalHealth.Network Advisor, data on global investments in companies that deal with Digital Health: while in 2018 there was a real boom with a turnover of USD $19.9Bn, 2019 maintains a solid level of funding at $12Bn (YTD Q3).

Wanting to put the lens on the categories within the Digital Health world, the most globally funded companies in the first nine months of 2019 were telemedicine ($1.5 billion), analytics ($1.3 billion) and mHealth apps ($1 billion), followed by areas such as health service reservations, mobile wireless and clinical decision support.

Conference Chairman Roberto Ascione, CEO of the co-host Healthware Group, describes the event as follows: "The FH19 formula can be summarised through three concepts: cutting edge technologies + leading healthcare companies + hands-on speakers. With Frontiers Health we do not only offer a platform for discussion on Digital Health trends. We offer our 600+ delegates from over 30 countries an opportunity to learn more about the technologies of the sector, access the ecosystem of health innovation and multidisciplinary infotainment of top quality speakers. Within three days, the world of digital health - VC, entrepreneurs, start-ups from the pharmaceutical, healthcare and health insurance sectors - meet in an immersive experience: a unique opportunity."

The conference will be multiformat and interdisciplinary with inspirational talks, roundtables, interactive workshops, masterclasses, pitching events and one-to-one meetings sessions between innovative companies and potential partners in the Start-up & Investor Lounge.

Presentations, insights and discussions will revolve around eight macro themes: digital therapies, revolutionary innovations, medical-scientific validation, reimbursements and business models, strategic partnerships, digital transformation of healthcare, financing and M&A, innovative health insurance.
