From 9 to 11 April 2024 DMEA, Europe's leading event for digitalisation in healthcare, is gathering numerous digital health experts from around the world on the Berlin Exhibition Grounds. The following is an overview of the international topics and exhibitors at DMEA 2024.


DMEA 2024 addresses numerous topics that go beyond examining healthcare in Germany, ranging from patient care in Europe and the electronic patient record in Denmark, to sharing open data and transparency surrounding AI in Europe.


More than 300 speakers from Germany and abroad will be on the stages, at the Hubs and in the Box areas over the three days of DMEA. They include Keyrellous Adib, Technical Officer for Data Science and Digital Health at the World Health Organization (WHO), Dr. Maame Yaa Yiadom, Professor of Emergency Medicine at Stanford University, Dr. Päivi Sillanaukee, Ambassador for Health and Wellbeing at the Finnish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Kenneth Bøgelund Ahrensberg of the Danish Health Data Agency, and Drs. Margrietha H. (Greet) Vink of the Erasmus Medical Centre, Rotterdam.


In his keynote speech, Keyrellous Adib will address the topic of digital health competence in Europe on 9 April at 10.45 a.m. in the Arena in Hall 6.2.


Dr. Maame Yaa Yiadom will talk about telemedical treatment and care models on day one of the congress at 11.15 a.m. in the Arena in Hall 6.2. Her focus will be on Stanford Medicine’s Virtual Visit Track program for emergency rooms, which reduces waiting times by 50 per cent.


Drs. Margrietha H. (Greet) Vink will be onstage at DMEA for a live podcast about the challenges posed by the digital transformation of the healthcare system. On 9 April at 3.10 p.m. on the stage in Hall 5.2, Drs. Vink will talk to Dr. Peter Gocke, CDO of Charité Berlin, about ways to introduce digital health innovations which function and offer real benefits.


Following her participation in 2022, Dr. Päivi Sillanaukee will be back on the DMEA stage this year to talk about healthcare in Finland. Her keynote will start on the first DMEA day at 4.05 p.m. on the Stage in Hall 5.2.


On 10 April at 12.15 p.m. at Box 1 in Hall 4.2, Kenneth Bøgelund Ahrensberg will discuss his experience of the electronic patient record in Denmark with other experts. What are the benefits and challenges of the ePR in Denmark, and what lessons can Germany learn?

All the congress sessions are available in translation by AI.
