      The pressure on hospitals to provide more personalized and specialized treatment and at the same time keep down costs has increased the need to move services out of the hospital and into the patients’ homes and everyday lives. For a number of patients, it will be an improvement to be treated while staying in their usual environment. Technology is an enabler of this opportunity and needs to be developed in close interaction between hospitals, municipalities, patients/users, and technology providers. This session will explore what promises digital health technologies holds in a future health care, with several short and to the point presentations from start-ups, large corporations, researchers, health economists and hospitals. The session is part of a digital health mini-track with CBS organising a workshop session following up on the above presentations with debate and discussion on how to move the field further.
