Will you adopt me?

How digital health is reimbursed and scaled: 4 countries. 4 models

All health systems are united by a common trait- fragmentation. Different reimbursement and adoption pathways in different countries can make digital health solutions hard to scale in some countries. The market you choose can make or break your business. Europe is particularly complex. How do we go about it? We will kick off my providing you with an overview of how health systems are organized in Europe and why it matters for entrepreneurs. Our panellists will then share their journeys to adoption in 4 of the biggest markets: France, Germany, Spain, UK.

Together we will answer to the following questions:

-How are the health systems organized in Europe?
-How is digital health reimbursed? Who pays for what, how and what you need to prove?
-What are the main barriers to adoption and does the model scale?

Panel discussion for future of surgery
This is an exciting time to be involved in surgery. The future of surgery will bring innovative technologies, enhanced understanding of disease and wider collaboration among experts and innovators to improve patient care.

Technologies such as surgical robots, artificial intelligence, three-dimensional printing and new imaging methods are already changing and will continue to change the way surgical care is delivered. Developments in fields such as genomics, regenerative medicine and cell-based therapies could open new avenues for predicting and treating disease, which were unthinkable only a few years ago.

Attend GIANT Health to learn what the future looks like, meet the leaders demonstrating which technologies are likely to have the greatest impact, and what this means for patients and surgical professionals.
