Be there when experienced physicians, engineers and computer scientists talk about future topics in radiology. And after the lectures, take advantage of the opportunity for networking and a lively exchange of opinions among nice colleagues.
With the fourth ETIM meeting we aim to create new insights, stimulate networking and initiate a sustained flow of communication between individual experts and workgroups
The organizers announce "a thrilling startup battle among promising eHealth startups" on the first day, more information on which will follow in early 2020.
ETIM 2020 will provide an overview over advances in healthcare and medical research, which are already strongly driven by information technology and engineering. "Technologies like individual genome sequencing, high-performance multiparametric imaging or wearable medical devices generate exponentially growing datasets while contemporary data-mining techniques allow to extract large amounts of valuable data from existing archives of unstructured medical data. These offer the opportunity for highly specific clinical decision making and personalized precision medicine", the organizers write.
The event will focus on upcoming technologies like AI and smart hospitals. Many experts predict that these will further accelerate medical innovation. However, as complex challenges often require complex solutions, these technologies demand an interdisciplinary approach between clinicians, computer scientists, engineers, researchers, healthcare providers, legislators and many other disciplines.
Drones or data cables?
Today the impressive development of drones by some people is happily regarded as the pinnacle of digitalisation in healthcare. Some groups are testing whether drones can quickly and safely deliver defibrillators to patients in need or whether they can transport laboratory samples or blood products. These developments catch lots of attention, but PD Dr Dominik Pförringer, trauma and orthopaedic…
Insights & Networking is another central topic of ETIM; the organizers state: "We are poised to bring all stakeholders to the table to define the demands of clinicians and healthcare providers, outline technical solutions and create a common understanding of the opportunities, and also the difficulties that may arise. With the fourth ETIM meeting we aim to create new insights, stimulate networking and initiate a sustained flow of communication between individual experts and workgroups."
Detailed information on the attending speakers, their topics and the event schedule can be found on the ETIM 2020 website.
