Dive deep into the Nordic Health IT scene by learning about the latest in Denmark, Finland, Norway, Sweden and the Baltics – from innovative legislations enabling the take-off in secondary use of health data at unimaginable scales to novel reimbursement structures, genomics standardization and pioneering initiatives in relation to electronic health record exchanges.

We will discuss big trends and changes happening in the individual Nordic countries followed by a closer look on realization of cross-border initiatives. Learn about the Nordic Interoperability Project, one of the most consolidated efforts to demonstrate the value for the patient from a seamless cross-border exchange of health data as well as about X-Road and the European Commission’s Recommendation on the European Electronic Health Record Exchange Format.
