Based on the successful Hospital + Innovation conferences in 2013 and during WHINN 2015, as well as the successful Data & Genomics conference during WHINN 2016, we are happy to present the theme for this year's Hospital + Innovation Congress:
Hospital & Innovation in the New Health Paradigm. Current trends on personalised medicine, valuebased healthcare, and the focus in the individual, present a completely new landscape of opportunities and challenges for the hospitals.
The congress is an open invitation for Danish and International key decision makers from both the public and private sector to learn more about Danish and International perspectives on building hospitals and experience the latest innovative hospital technologies.
In 2017, the Hospital + Innovation congress will focus on three main topics of the new health paradigm:
Infection control in hospitals is an area in continuous development. Innovative hospital constructions and technology developments are bringing in new possibilities for infection control, but also pose new challenges in the field.
The conference takes a look at some of the challenges modern hospitals face: How do we best keep hospital wards and patient rooms clean and safe – and create smooth processes for room disinfection and patient turnover? With more and more processes becoming digital, how can we keep patients and data safe, while at the same time benefiting from the available data flows and using them to provide personalized healthcare diagnostics and care? On a global scale there’s a rising problem with microbiotic resistance caused by overuse of antibiotics in healthcare and other industry sectors such as agriculture – which new technologies and solutions can be used to solve some of the issues leading to use of antibiotics and how should they be deployed for maximum benefit?

New Nordic Welfare - Values, gains and challenges
The conference is based on the Nordic model of Welfare and focus on value creation through welfare technology and on how to achieve measurable effect and value.
During three tracks the following themes will be presented:
Track 1 – Welfare Technology – getting there consists of a workshop, based on the Nordic project CONNECT under the Nordic Welfare Centre. Across the Nordic municipalities the project has gathered best practice in working with technology and presents 9 steps from vision to effect monitoring. Next, speakers will put attention to how we work with Living labs and a number of actors working with Living labs will present how the cooperation between citizens, private companies and the public sector contribute to welfare technology working in practice.
Track 2 - Return on Investment from Welfare Technology focus on how Welfare Technology holds the promise of improving quality of life and saving money for the taxpayers. The track presents Nordic cases on how welfare technology generate an attractive return on investment and improves the citizen’s quality of life. Participate to learn more about how your organization and the people you serve can benefit from welfare technology.
Track 3 - Effect in focus - management, learning and development in municipalities is about how we as a public organisation succeed, when we contribute to a positive change for the people and businesses we are here for. The track will be based on the yearlong experience in Odense, with challenges and solutions when developing the effect from the work of a municipality. The track will be conducted in a collaborative and exploratory environment, where we all become wiser about the challenges and possible solutions to succeed in supporting the work with effect in focus.
Track 1 and 3 will be conducted in Danish/Nordic, track 2 will be in English.
We share the same ambition of a long and healthy life for ourselves and our neighbors. We have trusted a health system but see the grounds shaking under it and as much as we need it, it cannot survive in its current form – it is expensive and outdated.
The innovation accelerators as Augmented and virtual reality, next generation security, 3D printing, IOT, Cognitive and Robotics are entering the health arena and are starting to be available at a price and scale which is attractive and it is time to act. We need to change. The current structure will need a reform, we need to make necessary technology investments and we need to take important ethical discussions – now.
At Adding Edge and IDC we share the vision that if we all come together we can create the world’s best health system – again. To succeed we need courage to take leadership and discover new grounds. We will throughout 2017 create a series of events where we look at what it takes to create the world's best health system and discuss with influencers where dreams can take us but also look deeper into the more specific areas needed to be discussed.
We invite you to join and are eager to collaborate to raise this important debate.
Most of us recognize how sound and light can influence our feelings and emotions, but can sensory effects also make patients healthy? We ask the questions - How can different sensory environments affect us and what is the evidence behind using sound & light as medicine? How can we take advantage of innovative sensory technologies like VR/AR when it comes to health? This and much more will be discussed at this conference.
The focus will be on emerging technologies and future trends, featuring groundbreaking research and inspiring industry cases and business applications. Whether you’re a business executive, IT- specialist, healthcare professional or just interested in the area, this conference will give you opportunities to gain a competitive edge in your field and get a glance into the future of your industry.
This conference will give the audience a chance to get a first impression of the possibilities in the realm of sensory intervention, and will also be engaged in discussing the technological possibilities for innovative medicine.
Robots and automation have been pushing their way in to the health and care sectors for a while, building on experiences from other sectors such as industry and agriculture – but what are the factors in play, when introducing robots in the "softer" field of healthcare? The technology has to be state-of-the-art but the elements of human-robot interaction and ease-of-use play perhaps an even greater part than the technology itself when it comes to user acceptance and adoption. Robots have been named the great savior in a healthcare sector struggling to find enough staff to diagnose, treat and care for an increasing number of patients – but also as a key element in both organizational logistics and personal care and rehabilitation outside of hospitals. How close are we to fulfilling any of these prophecies in Danish hospitals? And is it even realistic?
The conference aims at presenting the latest technological breakthroughs and future perspectives along with best practice examples and experiences from the health and care sectors where the robots are slowly but surely making their entrance. For a glimpse into the future, the conference will also address how drones could possibly play a key part in the future for Odense University Hospital.

Virtual og augmented reality bliver i stigende grad introduceret på sundheds- og velfærdsområdet, både i forbindelse med fysisk og kognitiv træning og rehabilitering fx på ældre/handikap-området og som pædagogisk værktøj eksempelvis i psykiatrien. Forskning og indledende erfaringer på området peger på et stort potentiale for virtual og augmented reality som supplement til og i visse tilfælde erstatning for medicinering og kirurgiske indgreb.

Big data/Open data is everywhere and most of the time we don’t even think about it. When watching Netflix, tracking your route on Endomondo or simply using electronic devices at home, which adds up on your electrical bill, data is gathered in vast amounts. So what can you use it for?
At this event we will discuss how Big data/Open data can be utilized specifically within the healthcare system. Through presentations we will take a look at what possibilities there are today when working with user generated (the citizens) Big data/Open data, how it is used, while also looking ahead to what might come next in the near future.
The National Service Platform (NSP) allows for a standardized and effective access to national health-IT services. By having data be available through the NSP, it will allow for a much smoother and more proactive healthcare as practitioners, clinicians and so forth can have access to citizen generated data, which will give them a more complete picture of the citizen’s/patient’s treatment and overall health.
We encourage and welcome everyone with an interest in Big data/Open data: municipal, regional, national, public and private players. By coming together, we will have the greatest chance of fully exploring the potential of Big data/Open data within the world of healthcare.
