Medica 2018

Description

MEDICA, the leading international trade fair for the medical sector, invites you to Düsseldorf / Germany from 12 - 15 November 2018. Be part of the number 1!

At MEDICA 2018, lively discussions will be had on topics, and this should result in an answer to the question of how available the service providers in the health industry will make these types of digital solutions to patients. Aspects which are linked to this, such as the new HL7 FHIR - the standard for mobile communication in healthcare, or the economy platform’s attack on healthcare data, will thus be dealt with in the MEDICA HEALTH IT FORUM, for example.
