The first ever cardiac conference in digital health – ESC Digital Summit 2019 – is set for 5 and 6 October at the Creative Hub in Tallinn, Estonia.

The event brings together core groups that are at the forefront of the digital health transformation. Patient groups, healthcare professionals, technology developers, policymakers, regulators, and reimbursement officers will take a deep dive into pressing issues, such as cybersecurity and how to evaluate whether a technology is beneficial.

Digital Health is now the third largest industry in the European health sector, after pharmaceuticals and medical devices. With this first Summit on Digital Health, the ESC is positioning itself at the forefront of this new domain in Cardiovascular Medicine.

Estonia is a leader on interoperability, meaning how novel technologies integrate with existing systems. Delegates will hear how to develop an interoperable digital health ecosystem. And as a signal of the country’s interest in digital health, the Estonian Prime Minister is set to attend the opening session.
