XPOMET

The medicine of the future is connected – across disciplines and care sectors. And it is becoming more precise, thanks to Big Data, Artificial Intelligence, and Deep Learning as well as Robotics, Molecular Diagnostics and Genomics allowing for personalization and better therapy outcomes. Health workers in medicine, nursing, and administration are relieved from some of their routine tasks – and they take improved therapy decisions based on electronic records independent of time and place as well as on comprehensive clinical decision support systems. Relationships between care provider and patient are changing fundamentally.

The promises of new approaches for routine, research, and development as well as medical education are steep – but so are the caveats on the part of some players who cite data privacy and fear job losses. This is where XPOMET Medicinale steps in.

The Festival of Future Medicine and Care is aiming high: it aims at communicating the most recent trends in research and technology to healthcare professionals. And it aims at motivating these target groups to actively co-design these developments. How will the Festival achieve this?
What’s in store for attendees

Participants will travel to Germany’s capital from all over the country, from Europe, and beyond: organizers expect more than 5,000 attendees and 150 renowned speakers. In 15 workshops and think Tanks as well as in showcases carried out by more than 200 innovative companies, participants will experience how new methods and models of business and care providing in medicine, nursing, and life sciences will transform the delivery of care.
This fully packed attractive agenda is rounded off by a hackathon. That format will offer a platform to information scientists, physicians, patients, as well as further professionals for creating totally new concepts and solutions. DJs, musicians, and art performances will provide an atmosphere which motivates attendees to open up their minds to new approaches. The stylish campus of Arena Berlin will be totally focused on the Future of Medicine in mid-October 2019.

The third day of XPOMET Medicinale will open its doors to patients and their loved ones. It will enable them to find information and to exchange opinions with experts and other patients – or to develop ideas for prevention and a healthier life.
