Theme 2023


Towards smarter, more sustainable medicine


In a sector where digital technologies hold out the promise of improved patient care, reconciling the acceleration of digital technology with environmental responsibility is a global societal challenge, that of creating a healthcare system capable of offering future generations medical services that are both sustainable and satisfying.

Through the eyes of our guest experts, we will explore how technological, scientific and human progress is leading to more accessible, integrative and sustainable medicine.

Our aim is to provide a wide range of insights based on practical applications.

Sustainability at the heart of the event

Digital Health Connect 2023 continues to focus on sustainability!
We are committed to creating a sustainable event for you. The choice of environmentally-friendly communications and local service providers are just some of the measures we have put in place for our events.
