HIMSS 2022 EU Conference: Re-imagine health

From 14 to 16 June 2022, our President, Dr Paul GARASSUS, and our Secretary General, Ms Ilaria Giannico, were at HIMSS 2022 EUROPE Conference: Re-imagine healthcare in Helsinki.

The 2022 HIMSS European Health Conference & Exhibition brought the European healthcare community back together in Helsinki, with a wide variety of attendees representing the global health sector.

The event was organized within the framework of the French Presidency of the Council of the European Union.

National digital transformation programmes need to factor in a new key objective: building back stronger and more resilient health systems. The EU is investing €673bn in “recovery and resilience” of which at least €13bn is targeting investment in digital health transformation. Healthcare and IT leaders have a bigger-than-ever opportunity to advance the digital transformation of their health systems.

On 15 June our President was interviewed by HIMSS tv and gave a speech on the vision of Health in 2050, in the session “Imagine Health and Care in 2050”, with visionary healthcare leaders including Gregory Moore MD, PhD, CVP, Microsoft Health and Life Sciences, Dr Simon Wallace CMIO, Nuance Communications, Professor Daniel Lasserson, Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
