European Digital HealthTech Conference 2024

Call for speakers

We are inviting digital health companies and support players from across Europe to speak at the European Digital Healthtech Conference – a unique event exploring the challenges of bringing health technologies to the market and their solutions. Submit your expression of interest to be part of four roundtable sessions exploring the key steps to gain market access for digital health technologies. An excellent opportunity to exchange experience and best practice with key players in the field. 

Deadline: 16 April 2024.

Business model use cases in digital health: 

Good practices for a successful market deployment

Building an algorithm using patient data is not sufficient to build a successful digital health company. A solid reflexion around the business model is needed, and will significantly impact the market access roadmap. 

 We are looking for: 
• Digital medical device companies which have successfully launched a technological solution in the market are invited to share best practices on defining a sustainable business model strategy supporting the market launch and revenue generation. This round table is open to all type of business models in digital health, such as:
o Non-certified technologies o Social security reimbursement 
o Private insurance reimbursement o Collaboration with large corporates
o Sales to healthcare providers or hospitals 
o etc. 
 • Healthtech ecosystem players – hubs, clusters, incubators and others – are also invited to present their programmes/initiatives supporting companies in this field.
I would like to join this session

Certification and market access:

Good practices for reimbursement

Market access for digital health technologies requires certification, but this alone is not sufficient to obtain social security reimbursement. This roundtable discussion will focus on best practices to navigate difficulties in accessing social security reimbursement in different European countries.

We are looking for:
- Digital health companies which have successfully completed the procedure for social security reimbursement in one or several EU countries are invited to discuss the challenges they faced and solution they developed on the way.
- Healthtech ecosystem players – hubs, clusters, incubators and others –are also invited to present how they support companies in navigating these challenges and optimising their access to social security reimbursement in several countries in Europe.

Clinical validation:

Promoting the adoption of digital technologies by patients and society

The clinical validation of digital health technologies is a challenging step. This roundtable aims to discuss strategies to engage patient and healthcare providers in clinical trials for digital health technologies, and how promoting the adoption of digital health technologies by society in general can facilitate the engagement of all parts in clinical trials. 

 We are looking for:
- Digital health companies which have completed clinical validation for CE mark, proof of value and/or societal impact of their technologies are invited to share their experience
- Experts, patient associations, healthcare providers and hospitals, are warmly encouraged to contribute with their point of view on the matter
