About WoHIT 2016
The new HIMSS Europe World of Health IT (WoHIT) Conference & Exhibition took place on 21–22 November 2016 in Barcelona, Spain. The event gathered top European healthcare stakeholders as the meeting point for the entire eHealth ecosystem.
Through a number of educational sessions with the most experienced speakers to learn from, together with a series of workshops, hospital tours and an interactive exhibition floor, this unique event addresses best practices, practical solutions and cutting edge developments in eHealth.
WoHIT encompasses six main summits
The CIO Summit addresses the real challenges and issues that hospital C-Suite executives face on a daily basis. You'll be able to share success stories, exchange knowledge and experiences, and also benefit from a dedicated Hospital Tour.
The Summit, which combines a full educational track and a dedicated area on the exhibition floor, intends to answer the burning questions around mHealth: who should be driving and paying for mHealth? How can we unite all patient data to accomplish personalised care?
The Cybersecurity Summit will be the first of its kind in a European setting. Cyber threats are becoming more apparent and can no longer be ignored: how are we going to tackle them in a healthcare context?
The educational track and interactive exhibition space intend to address these questions amongst many others.
Our first ever
Genomics Summit will review recent developments
in Genetic Health and will address key topics which
are essential in the development of healthcare. The Summit will give you an opportunity to interact with colleagues, hear from experts, and participate in panel discussions.
The HIMSS Communities are expanding rapidly and have become an essential part of our programme. Delegations from The Netherlands, France, Ibero-America, the Nordic region, Turkey and the DACH region will gather at WoHIT on an annual basis.
The Integrated Care track will showcase innovative solutions that are designed to address the key challenges associated with delivering integrated care services to promote the health and wellbeing of our ageing population. In addition, these sessions will explore the challenges to bring forward the necessary changes needed to deliver Integrated Care and will discuss key questions surrounding the development of Integrated Care from a multi-stakeholder perspective.
