Predictive modeling in healthcare – from prediction to prevention

eHealth Summit Austria is the national eHealth event which will take place on 24 - 25 May 2016 for the fourth time at the Apothecaries' Wing of the stunning Schoenbrunn Palace in Vienna. The fourth edition of the congress represents the successful cooperation between HIMSS and the Austrian partners: AIT, UMIT, OCG and OEGBMT. The Programme Committee includes renowned representatives from key sectors such as politics, science, users and industry, thus ensuring that all important and relevant topics for the Austrian healthcare are being addressed and reflected in the programme.

Under the main theme of "PREDICTIVE MODELING IN HEALTHCARE – FROM PREDICTION TO PREVENTION“ the eHealth Summit Austria will once again consist of two main tracks: the HIMSS Track, addressing primary users and physicians and the Scientific Track of the eHealth2016 Conference.

NEW: Starting in 2016, the primary language of the scientific conference eHealth 2016 will be English in order to address the increasingly international focus of eHealth and to acknowledge the importance of cross-border health ICT.

We are looking forward to welcoming you on the 24 - 25 Mai 2016 at the eHealth Summit Austria!
