Frontiers Health 2022 returns as a global hybrid event, offering an engaging experience for speakers and delegates in person and remotely.
The conference is designed to provide a unique platform to learn, exchange and get inspired.
Frontiers Health returns on October 20th and 21st, taking place at the fascinating venue Palazzo del Ghiaccio in Milan, Italy, and online.
Frontiers Health is one of the premier global digital health innovation events, with a strong focus on digital therapies, breakthrough technologies, healthcare transformation, investments, and ecosystem development.
Practitioners of disruptive health will engage in highly inspirational, informative, controversial sessions and conversations meant to give companies, entrepreneurs, and VCs a roadmap, key insights, top-level learning and unparalleled networking.
Six overarching themes of the conference
To fully capitalize on the opportunities unleashed by digital health innovations and keep this momentum going, this year’s conference edition will expand on:
Digital Therapeutics – From apps, sensors, and wearables treating depression and insomnia to VR applications for physical therapy or memory disorders, digital therapeutics are here, and they work. But many roadblocks still stand in the way of broad patient benefit.
Digital Care Delivery & Telehealth – While telehealth lets patients talk to their doctors from home, sensors, devices, and virtual care platforms greatly expand what can be done without a visit to the hospital.
Digital Transformation for life sciences – Now, life sciences companies, large and small, are grappling with the many ways that digital technology is changing the nature of their business. Medical education is changing in both medium and message as digital health becomes an essential part of healthcare.
Cross Industry Innovations – Who knows what else is on the horizon? Only by keeping our eyes peeled for new entrants and new technologies can we ever hope to envision healthcare’s future.
Funding, Scaling and Business Models – The last few years have seen the digital health market come into its own, with a record-breaking investment that took off in 2021 and has remained elevated ever since. 2021 also saw a record 20 companies going public through a traditional IPO or a SPAC deal.
Digital Public Health – As digital technologies transform the healthcare industry, digital innovators must view their work through a public health lens.
These themes will be explored throughout the two-day event, both in Day 1 plenary sessions and Day 2 parallel breakout sessions.
Conference highlights 2021 – over 1000 delegates joined from more than 40 countries, representing all areas of the health innovation ecosystem.
