The conhIT 2017 puts IT security and other trend subjects in focus.

Taking as its slogan '10 years of conhIT – combining health and innovative IT', the Congress focused on eHealth. The topics discussed included IT security and regulation as well as mobile health, robotics and the Internet of Things. At Trade Fair more than 500 exhibitors from 19 countries displayed their products and innovations in four halls. Switzerland, Austria and Estonia were represented with their own pavilions. Other European countries, as well as the USA, Saudi Arabia, Chile, Taiwan and Israel also exhibited at this year’s event. The International Networking Lounge, organized by conhIT in cooperation with Germany Trade and Invest, hosted a special program for international visitors. Among the topics were market opportunities at national and international level. The presentations by startups on special displays such as the mobile health ZONE attracted considerable interest from trade visitors.

”Even in its tenth year conhIT continues to expand. A ten per cent increase in exhibitors and a significant rise in participants are proof that conhIT, in its role as Europe’s leading event for health IT, is the place where the industry comes together. The concept of a Trade Fair, Congress, Academy and Networking once again attracted a wide audience, from hospital IT heads, doctors and app developers to newcomers to this sector“, states Dr. Christian Göke, CEO of Messe Berlin.

conhIT is organised in cooperation with the following industry associations: the German Association of Healthcare IT Vendors (bvitg), the German Association for Medical Informatics, Biometry and Epidemiology (GMDS) and the German Medical Informatics Professional Association (BVMI).
