DigiHealthDay-2020 pre-meeting VIRTUAL WORKSHOP series over

New Paper Submission Deadline is September 1, 2020

Dear DigiHealth Enthusiasts and Supporters,

The DigiHealthDay-2020 pre-meeting VIRTUAL WORKSHOP SERIES that took place from April-July, has been concluded. The initial plan was to host the events onsite at DIT-ECRI, but later they were converted to VIRTUAL WORKSHOPS, due to the pandemic situation. That allowed participants from across the globe to take part in and made the series an international success.

For the first time ever seven separate educational-scientific events bound by a single theme of Digital Health, were staged at DIT-ECRI, spanning over the course of 14 days in three months, featuring 28 sessions to a total of 45 hours, and attended live or viewed on-demand by 163 registered attendees from 40 countries around the world.

Prof. Dr. Brian E. Dixon from Indiana University and Regenstrief Institute’s Center for Biomedical Informatics (USA), Dr. Malcolm Fisk from De Montfort University (UK), Prof. Dr. Thais Russamano from King’s College London (UK), Mr. Justus Wolff from the company Syte (Germany), and Mr. Florian Hettenbach from Amazon Web Services (Germany), were among the prominent speakers who conversed on topics that include “Applied Public Health informatics”, “Key Ethical Benchmarks for Digital Healthcare”, “Telehealth Applied to Extreme Environments”, “Artificial Intelligence in Healthcare”, and “Innovate faster with AWS – The Cloud Fundamental”. VIRTUAL WORKSHOPS from DIT-ECRI alumni included “Clinical Decision Support Systems” by Dr. Arunakyri Natarajan, and “Data Integration and Interoperability” by Jonathan Okereke, Fernando Portilla, and Samir Irshaid. To help strengthen the concept, in addition to the presentation and discussions, several VIRTUAL WORKSHOPS also featured hands-on training sessions. Almost all WORKSHOPS were conducted on Microsoft Teams with very few technical issues and the participant survey suggests good audience reception. The audience appreciated the informative and engaging sessions, adding that the content was essential for their professional knowledge and career.

DigiHealthDay-2020 pre-meeting VIRTUAL WORKSHOPS with the combination of expert speakers and practice sessions through the online platform has helped DIT-ECRI reach a new milestone in its academic venture to provide world-class knowledge.

The main event “DigiHealthDay” on November 13, will continue the educational-scientific dialogue on the theme “Digital Health” with world-renowned EXPERTS. Given the current pandemic situation, we are happy to offer also VIRTUAL participation in the event, with a possibility to follow the presentations and discussions live and on-demand, FREE OF CHARGEREGISTER NOW and add the DigiHealthDay-2020 to your calendar!
