HIMSS Europe and Health 2.0 Conference

May 27-29, 2018 | Sitges, Barcelona


What our colleagues and customers say:

“A unique feature at the HIMSS Europe & Health 2.0 Conference in May 2018 will be our true working sessions. We are excited to welcome people coming together through their communities to solve problems both at a national and regional level, to benefit from opportunities in digital health, and to address key topics such as the use of information and how the content of information will cross borders. We hope you’ll be there!”

Hal Wolf, CEO & President, HIMSS



“Health 2.0 2017 Barcelona was a great opportunity to connect and discover new solutions (and to reconnect with known ones) and to add value to the healthcare industry. I would highlight from the session dedicated to payers, the fact that start ups are designing and adapting their solutions to payers. Not only to create relevant services but also to measure their contribution to relevant KPIs. Topics such as scientific validity of the solutions and management of customers data are becoming increasingly important and I believe that bringing together Health 2.0 and HIMSS will result in increased synergies and ability to tackle these and other important challenges. I look forward to the new opportunities that these synergies will create!”

Begoña San José, Global Head of Health Partnerships & Business Development, AXA



“I have had the privilege of attending both HIMSS Europe and Health 2.0 conferences on separate occasions and truly feel that there couldn’t be a better time for these two organisations to come together. Their collaboration is going to mark the beginning of an innovative era in healthcare and will make the event in Sitges next May a guaranteed success. I can’t wait!”

Josep Carbo, Global Business Developer, Mediktor, Spain



“HIMSS Europe is renowned for gathering the most influential hospital CEOs and CIOs with the most significant 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 convert vision into action: initiating meaningful business conversations, connecting supply and demand, creating marketplaces and accelerating investments and large scale implementations.”

Pascal Lardier, Director of Content, HIMSS Europe and Health 2.0



“I’ve been attending Health 2.0 conferences since 2011 because it’s a unique environment to explore shakers and movers in digital health innovation. Unique, because the entire ecosystem is represented (including patients!) and because the organisers were not only prepared to programme difficult subjects, they also took care the audience would get a well balanced hands-on view. The combination of HIMSS and Health 2.0 brings together decision makers and innovators and this will undoubtedly result in both invaluable advice from around the world on how to tackle future challenges and improve the quality of healthcare delivery.”

Bart Collet, Founder, Hyperadvancer, Belgium



“I'm pleased that Health 2.0 and HIMSS will be co-located this year. I have participated for the last 2 years in Health 2.0 and it is bringing us to a space where the innovators on the ground can join with healthcare systems. The combination of HIMSS and Health 2.0 spans the whole healthcare system and will allow us to further join the dots and create partnerships in order to provide health, care and wellbeing technology globally.”

Rachel Dunscombe, CEO NHS Digital Academy, Imperial College and Chair HIMSS UK Advisory Board, UK



“At Bayer, we are faithful to this event for several years! Our participation in Health 2.0 Europe allows us to meet new startups, new trends, great experts and make new and interesting contacts, as well as inform about our open innovation programs, with special focus on Grants4Apps® (#G4A), the initiative to support digital health startups; in addition, we invite to our booth some of the brilliant startups that have been in the last editions of G4A. I really recommend it to those who are interested in knowing and deepening in digital innovation and possible new business models for the health sector. The selection of Sitges as location of this year will allow us to be focused on what we have come to do without losing sight of a beautiful environment with a wonderful microclimate. I'm sure it will be an ideal environment for networking inside and outside the event facilities.”

Roberto Martin, IT Innovation Head, Bayer, Spain
