HIMSS Europe and Health 2.0 are collocating the most influential digital health conference of 2018. The HIMSS Europe 18 & Health 2.0 Conference will be held on 27 – 29 May in the beautiful coastal Spanish town of Sitges, located just 25 minutes away from Barcelona. The conference will include sessions which will address the whole spectrum of the digital health ecosystem with the aim to reach key audiences in the sector: from hospital CEOs to innovative SMEs and start-ups, as well as CMOs, clinicians and nurses. Conference themes will include: digital transformation, cybersecurity, interoperability and data into knowledge.

In addition, the HIMSS Europe 18 & Health 2.0 Conference is honoured to be supported by the Dutch Ministry of Health, who will bring immense added value to the programme. The renowned European Telemedicine Conference (ETC) will also be featured in the conference, as well as a high-level C-suite workshop hosted by HIMSS-CHIME International.


HIMSS Europe is renowned for gathering the most influential hospital CEOs and CIOs with the most important technology providers and industry leaders. Health 2.0 Europe, the leading showcase of cutting-edge innovations transforming health systems, brings together a grassroot community of innovators. Connecting these two worlds, our goal is to step from vision into action: initiating meaningful business conversations; connecting supply and demand and creating marketplaces; accelerating investments and large scale implementations.
