ConhIT – connecting healthcare IT has been widely hailed as a successful debut event. 144 companies, including the industry’s market leaders, exhibited their products over an area covering 8,500 m2 in the display halls of the Berlin Exhibition Grounds.
The organisers had realised a new concept for Germany, with a professional programme of congress and academy events held at different times accompanying the trade fair. Separate opening times meant that exhibitors were able to attend sessions offering advanced training, and besides presenting their products were also allowed an opportunity for networking and training of their employees. A total of 2,513 visitors and 650 participants from the trade attended the various events.
The congress was certified by the Berlin Medical Association which awarded nine advanced training points for attendance of the sessions on all three days of the event. Those taking part in nursing care training were also awarded three points per day for attending the congress.
Furthermore, as of 2009, Professor Dr. Klaus Kuhn, President of the German Association of Medical Computer Sciences, Biometry and Epidemiology, and Dr. Carl Dujat, President of the German Association of Medical Computer Scientists (BVMI), announced that the KIS conference would become part of the conhIT congress.
