It is our pleasure to invite you to join us at the 2nd INTERNATIONAL HEALTH 4.0 INNOVATIONS IN HEALTH CONGRESS to be organized between October 5-7, 2018 by Doktorclub, in scientific collaboration with Okan University, Faculty of Medicine.
Today, medical technologies experience radical changes in terms of patients, physicians and health care facilities. Future medicine will be much more innovative, creative, patient-oriented, digital and sustainable. As we come closer to the end of the traditional health services, the change comes rapidly alongside with the technological developments and digitalization in this century. We must take one step further to be the ones to make the steer the change rather than follow and adapt to it. Better understanding the Health 4.0 and its reflection on health as well as taking front seats in the process of change will be inevitable. Thus, we determined the main theme of the Health 4.0 Innovations in Health Congress as “Here and Now for Tomorrow's Medicine”.
This year, we have on our congress agenda the topics such as clinical advancements in different disciplines, digitalization in health care services, medical and pharmaceutical R&D activities, mobile and e-health services, use of artificial intelligence and big data in health care, 3D, VR applications, wearable and portable medical devices, smart and green hospital practices, new technologies in medical education, medical and surgical robots, use of microchips and sensors, health technology investments and policies. Physicians of different specialties, engineers, medical and pharmaceutical industry representatives, entrepreneurs, managers in health care and authorities from public health care service open to technology and innovation will gather at the congress.
Last year, “the 1st Health 4.0 Innovations in Health Congress” became a communication platform for public, private sector, industry, universities, health care service providers, academics and health care professionals and gathered professionals who strive to lead the advancements and change in medicine and health care services. At our first congress on November 24-26, 2017, 34 conferences, 15 panels and 2 workshops were organized with participation of 71 speakers and 520 participants. This year we expect to host over 1.000 national and international participants. This year, we also invite countries that are innovative in technology and practices in medicine and health care fields.
We plan to offer different opportunities such as commercial committee meetings at business lounge for the invited countries, booth areas for participant companies and a chance to be included in the scientific program for the academics and representatives of institutions within the context the concept of the congress. It is our belief that the esteemed participants will catch a chance to establish new partnerships and reinforce the current commercial relations at a professional setting by being an active cooperation partner/sponsor of the “Health 4.0 Innovations in Health Congress”.
We look forward to see you at our congress, which we believe will be an important step towards tomorrow's medicine..
