Europe’s digital health industry meets at DMEA in Berlin

In just over two months, from 9 to 11 April 2024, DMEA, Europe’s leading event for digitalisation of healthcare, will gather digital health experts at the Berlin Exhibition Grounds. Around 700 exhibitors and 300 speakers from Germany and abroad will present their solutions and products for the future of digital healthcare.

From electronic patient files for everyone and the use of artificial intelligence to the digitalisation of care - from 9 to 11 April 2024, everything at the Berlin Exhibition Centre will revolve around the digitalisation of healthcare.

Federal Minister of Health Prof. Dr. Karl Lauterbach will open DMEA with a keynote speech. At last year’s opening he outlined a concrete timetable for digitalising the healthcare system. Enacting digital laws is now under way. DMEA 2024 will now focus on concrete implementation steps for digitalisation.

Trade visitors can look forward to a wide-ranging programme of congress lectures, workshops, seminars, discussions, pitches and presentations on the digital future of the healthcare sector. DMEA 2024 covers a wide spectrum of topics, including the utilisation of health data, digital strategies in hospitals, telemedicine apps, and opportunities for digitalisation in practices and medical care centres.

The website of DMEA provides regular updates on the programme of DMEA 2024.

Around 700 exhibitors will be represented at DMEA with their innovative solutions and products. In addition to leading players such as CompuGroup Medical, Dedalus, ID Information und Dokumentation im Gesundheitswesen, medatixx, Meierhofer, nexus AG and Telekom Healthcare Solutions, other major health sector companies and startups from Germany, Europe and Asia have secured their stands at DMEA.
