Digital Health Days is an international conference in the budding field of digital health, which is focused on the transformation within the healthcare system, patient empowerment, the emerging business opportunities, the new healthcare ecosystem with new and non-traditional players and trends in related research areas such as Biosensors, Big Data, AAL and Gamification.
Activities at the conference include pitches by European startups, VC panels, demos and hands-on workshops on design thinking and patient involvement. There are also on stage announcements of winners of scientific awards, winners of health hacks and new company collaborations.
Since its inception in 2013, Digital Health Days has had hundreds of speakers on stage, nearly a thousand delegates from a dozen countries in Stockholm and 3500+ viewers of the live-streaming and on our YouTube-channel, and thousands of tweets during the conference as well as conference partners from leading international companies such as IBM, AbbVie, Microsoft to mention a few.
The goal is to catalyze the progress in digital health internationally, strengthen the local ecosystem and position Stockholm as a premium meeting spot for professionals involved in the digital health transformation.
That is why welcome receptions in Stockholm City Hall where the Nobel Prize dinner is held are part of the conference.
Our vision is to be a leading meeting spot that catalyzes commercial and academic progress in digital health.

Develop and disseminate knowledge in digital health from specialized satellite meetings, reports and other activities arranged together with or by partnering organizations.

How we work:
Digital Health Days and associated activities are developed together with founders, partners and expert groups. The process is in continuous improvement as we expand these parties with representatives from important stakeholders such as patient, healthcare providers and academic research to mention a few.
We work with a strong focus on fundamental human values, and thus aim for balanced gender representation on and off-stage and ensuring the venue is handicap friendly.
We believe in citizens being the driving force of change in digital health and thus are involving patient representatives early in the program development process, and having patients as plenary speakers and offering a set of free tickets to ensure that they are also included in the audience.
We encourage individuals, organizations or companies who strive for the improvement of human health worldwide to use us as a channel of achieving that mission.
