As at the last event, Federal Minister of Health Prof. Dr. Karl Lauterbach will act as patron of DMEA. At the opening of DMEA 2022, Lauterbach announced a strategy policy for modern and better medical care. The digitalisation strategy was launched last autumn, and first results are to be presented this spring.

DMEA 2023 topics will include health data use, AI, telemedicine applications, the outlook for the telematics infrastructure (TI), the electronic patient file (ePA) and ePrescriptions.

From big industry players to startups

More than three-quarters of the 600 exhibitors expected to attend have already registered for DMEA 2023. In addition to major companies such as CompuGroup Medical, Dedalus, ID Information und Dokumentation im Gesundheitswesen, medatixx, Meierhofer, nexus AG and Telekom Healthcare Solutions, all the other leading players and numerous startups from Germany and abroad have secured their places at DMEA. Compared with last year’s event, the number of startups exhibiting has almost doubled. As in previous years, international exhibitors are represented on combined stands. This year, combined stands featuring Austria, Belgium (Flanders), Denmark, Finland, Italy, Latvia, Netherlands, Norway and Switzerland are taking part. An EEN matchmaking event is also being organised at DMEA. EEN stands for Enterprise Europe Network, the world’s largest information and support network for small and medium-sized enterprises with international ambitions.

The new ’_Focus: DMEA sparks’ display is where exhibitors and universities are represented, and they will be engaging with students and young professionals with the aim of securing them as new employees. In addition to the exhibition area there will be a stage for discussion rounds, lectures and info sessions.
