Insuring Digital Health – partners4patients 2021

Marsilius-Akaden, Im Neuenheimer Feld 130, 69120 Heidelberg, Germany

Adapting their own digital innovations to the needs of patients as well as the requirements of the health care system is still a difficult task start-ups are confronted with. The Insuring Digital Health event, which we are organising together with the 5-HT Digital Hub for Chemistry & Health, offers a platform, that brings start-ups and various representatives of the health care system together. Over pitch sessions, speed dating and networking opportunities, start-ups have the opportunities to present their solutions from the field of digital health to health insurance funds, insurance companies, patient’s organisations and service providers. with the aim to integrate innovative solutions into the service portfolio of the health insurance companies.

In 2021 the “Insuring Digital Health” event will focus on patient solutions for improved and individualized diagnosis, treatment and medication options. Start-ups can present themselves and their services, if they can show a working prototype and proof of concept of a digital health solution in this field.
