HealthTech Innovation is a forward thinking high-end technology congress for security, safety and traceability in the healthcare sector
HealthTech Innovation fosters an open exchange on the effects of digital transformation in the healthcare sector. It looks at innovative technologies and promotes the sharing of best practices and helps address the requirement of end-users, system integrators and technology suppliers involved in the creation of the future ICT infrastructure supporting security and traceability in the world of healthcare.
The healthcare sector is a key adoption ground for Artificial Intelligence, Augmented Reality, Blockchain, 3D printing, as well as state-of-the-art technologies and solutions for security and traceability. The management of public and private healthcare institutions must guarantee control and efficiency of critical processes. Disruptive technologies play a key role as key enablers supporting processes in place at hospitals, private clinics, health centers and at institutions operated by local public health authorities.
HealthTech Innovation offers an important chance for cross-fertilization from other industries already using advanced digital technologies, going beyond the specific industry contraints of other events, offering a profound understanding of the cross-sector opportunities and implications of each technology platform.

Supporting security and traceability in the world of healthcare
• Hospital efficiency management
Efficient hospital management is essential to ensure patients are provided with timely and appropriate care. ID technologies can help maximize efficiency to reduce patient congestion, improve quality of healthcare and achieve cost savings.
• Information management
Accurate and secure information management is critical to achieving the benefits of electronic medical records and to ensuring patient safety and privacy. There is also an increasing need for positive staff ID to protect patient privacy and track e-prescribing.
• Patient monitoring
Patient monitoring is vital to care in operating and emergency rooms, intensive care and critical care units. It is crucial that data can be stored and recalled with scanning technology, for use with on-screen trends, printer or personal computers.
• Pharma tracking and control
Pharmaceutical companies are painfully aware of the need to track drugs for both supply chain and temperature control. RFID is increasingly used for this purpose, including tracking the freshness and temperature integrity of medical supplies.
• Physical and logical access
Many hospitals are embracing the benefits of using smart cards to control physical access to their buildings and add logical security to the IT networks that house confidential patient data.
• Critical infrastructure management
Critical health infrastructures are complex networks of systems, facilities, and assets generating hospitals, nursing homes, home care or pharmacies. All are of vital interest to ensure security, economy, health, safety or welfare of the public.
• Critical asset tracking
One of the biggest challenges is the need for nurses and other clinical staff to quickly and easily locate critical medical equipment. RTLS technology provides information on an asset’s location and status using proven technologies such as RFID.
• Anti-counterfeiting and drug control
All stakeholders in the medical supply chain need to embrace autoID-based track and trace systems in order to ensure transparency and combat the rise in counterfeit drugs and ensure bona fide supplies are protected and controlled.
• Emergency ID and mobility
In emergency situations, time is of the essence. To act quickly, scene commanders and first responders must have access to the right information at the right time. Mobile and wireless networking solutions are crucial a mission critical medical situations.
