Digital Medicine Week 2021

Four days, four interconnected conferences, one goal: improving everyday life for patients. Be there when the hih opens the digital gates, giving the stage to patients, medical entrepreneurs, DiGA (app) manufacturers, researchers, experts in evidence generation, medical socieities, certifiers, and MDR experts.

Medical venture validation, DiGA Con, Evidence Con, and MDR Conthe interactive concept behind Digital Medicine Week will offer insights into patientseveryday lives, present patient-centered digital innovations, develop study designs for DiGA, give medical entrepreneurs a stage to present their products to medical societies, health insurers, and VCs, and provide doctors, psychotherapists, and other health care professionals an overview of currently approved DiGA.

Be there as thought leaders and innovators articulate the strategies, challenges, and benefits of a digital, networked health care system.

MVV – Medical Venture Validation

For medical entrpreneurs, hackers, and patient-innovators

Having an idea is the first step; implementation is typically much more difficult. Medical Venture Validation brings together innovators and implementors to jointly illuminate the daily lives of those living with illnesses, to rethink patient needs, and to realise concrete improvements. This  format is oriented towards invidiauals from all all corners of health care and research as well as patients and their relatives, who have  a concrete idea for a digital product or who want to improve the lives and participation of individuals with illness through a new venture. The MVV can offer multifaceted support – through reality-checks from patient advovates and medical societies, master classes, and a Pitch Day in front of investors as well as health insurance funds.

Evidence Con

For researchers

The Evidence Con is a successor to the first Research-a-thon, which took place in February 2019 at the German Center for Cancer Research in Heidelberg. In addition to eminent innovators and researchers who would like to identify studies, designs, and endpoints during the study period, we welcome other interested participants who are interested in testing their ideas and pursuing proof of concept for promising, but still nascent care hypotheses.

MDR Con

For certification of experimental medical devices, digital health entrepreneurs

The certification of digital medical devices is already a challebnge under the MDD and will become even more significant under the MDR. At the MDR Con, experts in medical device certification will come together with digital health entrepreneurs to discuss how agile, digital product development can be achieved within the requirements of the MDR.

DiGA Con

For manufacturers of prescribable DiGA to-date

Since October 2020, digital health care applications have enriched the German health care and prescription landcape. What approaches are they using? Which paths have they taken? What differentiates them? What study designs have they used for evaluation? As part of DiGA Con, manufactuers of all BfArMapproved DiGA will give structured presentations so that physicians, medical societes, insurers, and patient organizations can get a decisive overview of this new area of health care in a short period of time.
