So, whether your interest lies in how Big Data can benefit your organisation – or in what leadership requires in the digital age – HIMSS Impact18 is sure to be an unmissable event!



"We are in the midst of a period of exponential growth in nano-, medical and information technologies. These power new approaches to generating, integrating and interrogating Big Data and uncover the potential to fundamentally change our understanding of health and disease. HIMSS Impact fosters knowledge exchange between international experts looking to shape the future of health through Big Data.”


Prof. Dr. Erwin Böttinger, Professor for Digital Health – Personalized Medicine and Head of Digital Health Center, Hasso Plattner Institute

"Digital health is set to have an enormous impact on the way healthcare providers deliver care. Being a healthcare executive, you need to deal with process, structural and cultural changes, digitalisation brings to your organisation. At HIMSS Impact18, you learn how to successfully lead, manage and implement digital transformation."
