Nordic and German views on Smart Health: How innovations can enhance wellbeing and an improved quality of life in an ageing society
The outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic has made health the all-dominant megatrend in all societies that underlined the importance of anticipating future challenges. Also, it showed that the healthcare systems in most countries are under tremendous pressure. For instance, the Nordics and Germany are both facing a demographic shift towards an ageing population with new complex health and social care challenges, including more patients with chronic diseases.

Smart health innovations are recognized to become increasingly relevant in the course of the digital transformation of the sector providing an enormous potential around digital solutions and medical medical technology research and development. These solutions entail technological developments in mobile and portable devices, big data analytics and cloud computing, as well as novel ideas on patient co-management, health monitoring of remote communities, or the prevention of unhealthy lifestyles, among others.

Together with experts from the Nordic countries and Germany we want to explore the question how innovations can enhance wellbeing and an improved quality of life in an ageing society. Our guests:

- Kari Klossner, Head of Smart Life Finland Programme, Business Finland, Finland

- Henning Blumenstein, Digital Health Expert, Techniker Krankenkasse, Germany

- Dr. Göran Larsson, Head of Research and Development, Region Västerbotten, Sweden

- Robert Lauritzen, CEO, Cerebriu, Denmark

The event will be moderate by Sylvia Hartmann, Vice-Chair | KLUG - German Climate Change and Health Alliance e.V.
