After its debut in 2014, the MEDICA CONNECTED HEALTHCARE FORUM will be continued during MEDICA 2015, World Forum for Medicine. 

The HEALTHCARE FORUM will be a program highlight in the MEDICA IT section. MEDICA, billed as the world’s largest medical trade show,  will take place Nov. 16-19 at the fairgrounds in Düsseldorf, Germany.

“From the beginning, the forum was well received and it was a complete success on each day with around 2,000 participants at the presentations that were held in English. On a transnational level, in particular, issues regarding the networking of health industry players and related technological solutions are quite future-oriented,” said Horst Giesen, director of MEDICA.

Mobile health applications will be a primary focus at the MEDICA HEALTHCARE FORUM and will again feature the popular app competition organized by Mark Wächter.

Developers of mobile medical device apps will present their creations, with a top-class jury selecting the winner.

In addition to the MEDICA CONNECTED HEALTHCARE FORUM, the MEDICA HEALTH IT FORUM, which was established several years ago, will cover topics in the field of heath IT. Here, the primary focus will be on innovations within the field of telemedicine.

COMPAMED, High Tech Solutions for Medical Technology, will be held concurrently with MEDICA. Starting this year, MEDICA and COMPAMED will take place from Monday to Thursday (instead of Wednesday to Saturday for MEDICA and Wednesday to Friday for COMPAMED) to provide better distribution for the professional audience during all four trade fair days.

And with over a thousand different-level attacks since 2015, it’s no surprise that safety and security are among the top concerns for event professionals.
