Medica 2018 to talk about digital medicine

When top decision-makers in the healthcare business meet in Düsseldorf at Medica 2018, (12 to 15 November, 2018), they will once again be greeted by over 5,000 exhibitors from almost 70 countries. Digital transformation remains at the top of everyone’s list this year.

Medica will be held once more in parallel to Compamed for the 27th time.
This prevailing trend will not only be represented by exhibitor innovations at the Medica, but is also reflected in the programmes of the accompanying conferences and forums, the organizer states. These conferences and forums include the Medica Health IT Forum (on IT topics such as big data, artificial intelligence and cyber security), the Medica Connected Healthcare Forum (hardware and software solutions for connected healthcare) and the Medica Medicine & Sports Conference, held entirely in English, which takes a look at the use of applications which are used in close proximity to the body and wearables for monitoring vital signs.

“Regardless of the progress achieved by digital medicine: The main focus in care is and always will be on human beings. For example, in medical imaging, artificial intelligence allows accurate analyses to be executed and relevant image data to be pre-selected for diagnoses. This accelerates the diagnostic process and offers doctors valuable support in their decision making. However, the doctor’s evaluation remains authoritative,” says Horst Giesen, Global Portfolio Director for Health & Medical Technologies at Messe Düsseldorf, outlining an example of the ideal interplay between humans and machines.

Many innovative young companies are taking up the global digitalisation trend in the healthcare sector, the organizer says. Many of them will be present at Medica, for example at the Medica Start-Up-Park. In parallel, a fine selection of company founders will present their latest ideas in the Medica Connected Healthcare Forum sessions (which all take place in Hall 15).

This year, once more in parallel to the Medica, Compamed will take place for the 27th time with approx. 800 exhibitors (Halls 8a and 8b).
