Precision medicine or personalized health depends on good data and genomics. The Copenhagen Institute for Futures Studies is preparing a conference on “Data & Genomics: Realising the Nordic “Data Goldmine”.
Health will be disrupted by the potential of molecular and digital data, especially when in combination with advances in the Internet of Things (IoT), 3D printing, robotics and nano technology.
The Nordic Countries ( Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Iceland, Faroe Islands, Greenland, Åland) have collected a vast amount of social and health data that can be considered a research, development and commercial gold mine – and even be a of use in both individual health and population health. But we do not see this data used enough; is there a need for such data, what can it benefit and where are the bottlenecks?
What are the possibilities with Genomics & Data for health?
What do we need to develop and/or change to make genomics more applicable?
How do we “set the data free” so it can be used efficiently and effectively?
Can the Nordic Region become a driver for data-driven genomic health models?
The conference will be organized with the following four sessions
Genomics, ICT & Data in Present and Future Health
Danish/ Nordic Health and Social Data
Activating the Danish Data Goldmine for Health and Genomics – who are the enablers?
Early Bird price until 1th August: DKK 3150/ EUR 420
Middle Price until 1th September: DKK 3750/ EUR 500
In many countries, health and social care are managed in different sectors. Data are often not shared between the two sectors and problems occur, when social factors impact a patient’s health – and the other way around. Citizens and patients, and the health professionals and social workers who meet them, are victims in this fragmented system. Citizens and patients must be at the centre to ensure continuity of care in its entirety, both from a social and a health perspective.
In this conference, we focus on the experiences and challenges – organisational, legal and digital – we meet when trying to promote data sharing between the two sectors, seen both from a Danish and an international perspective. We take a look at strategic and practical approaches and we hear from policy makers as well as from the everyday life in a municipality, for which this is a real life issue.
The conference is organised by MedCom in collaboration with Local Government Denmark (KL) and Danish Regions.
Infection Control and Innovation – New Solutions to Old problems?

Infection control and innovation – New solutions to old problems?
- Opposites attract? Combining basic infection control methods and highly advanced innovation in modern healthcare
Conference in Odense, October 6th 2016.
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. At the conference we wish to examine aspects of this duality. Which of the new technologies actually delivers an answer to a known problem and which are superfluous demonstrations of design and technology that can do more harm than good when it comes to infection control? Are we addressing the real problems of infection control? And how do we ensure that proper infection control measures are taken when implementing new technology such as surgical robots?
The 1-day conference event in Odense seeks to examine these questions and give room for discussion and networking. The purpose is specifically to bring together people from different areas who all work in the field of infection control, from scientists and researchers to practitioners in hospitals and technicians and vendors from the industry. There is an identified need for technology experts to learn more about infection control standards and likewise for experts in this field to gain more insight into the pros and cons of the many new solutions they are constantly presented with. Innovation is both necessary and inevitable, but we have to find the right solutions to the right problems.
Large-scale telemedicine deployment in Denmark – A look at the results and the questions people are afraid to ask (In Danish)
Wednesday October 5th the Centre for Innovative Medical Technology will host a national conference around the topic of large-scale telemedicine deployment in Denmark.
In recent years a number of telemedicine services for patients with chronic conditions have been implemented at large scale in the Danish regions and comprehensive evaluations have been carried out. It is now time to join the researchers and practitioners involved in each of these projects to collect insights and experiences gained, and form a shared understanding of both positive results and the not-so-positive aspects that have come from these large implementation processes. Based on this discussion, the conference hopes to shed lights on both opportunities and challenges and give recommendations about future large-scale telemedicine initiatives in Denmark.

Get a first hand impression of the possibilities, explore the music universe, and join us to discuss about new technological music intervention solutions could be a contender in an innovative medicine without side effects.
Man has used music in the tens of thousands of years. The Greek philosopher Plato believed that music was primarily used to express aggression, defence, persuasion and to create social harmony. When we listen to music today the pleasurable aspect is mainly highlighted, but the music can do more than just get you in a good mood – music naturally affects the brain and body's physiology, and has thus unique health benefits. The question is whether detailed insight into how music affects our brain and body together with new technology solutions can help alleviate widespread diseases as stress, chronic pain, and poor sleep?
In the health sector there is great attention to how the environment contributes to the well-being and rehabilitation. Results from the last ten years of research have shown that music interventions, i.e. deliberate use of music to influence patients is an effective treatment for both physical and mental illnesses. Music cannot substitute for good medical treatment, but can be complementary for more individualized and effective treatment. In addition to this exposure to music is usually enjoyable and without side effects, cheap, easy to use and can be adapted to individual preferences. Despite the music's effect on the body and brain are well documented, and that the range of technology platforms and products specialized for music is great, there are very few scientific evidence-based solutions and commercial music interventions are often based on anecdotal knowledge.
The conference is organised by Danish Sound and Innovation Network for Health and Welfare Technology

Afternoon Debate on Improving Innovation Capacity of the Danish Health Care System
04 Oct 2016: 14.00-17.00
Odense Congress Center
How are evidence-based data and financial incentives in the system impacting industry’s role to deliver products and services to the Danish health care system? What are the metrics to further advance and sustain the system in this respect?
Our interest is to secure the best possible conditions for patients, researchers, authorities and industries in the Danish health care system involving public health and associated social care.
We believe this is achieved by working together and understanding the conditions and needs of each stakeholders of the system. We see great value in maintaining and developing a patient-focused healthcare system of international standard.
In this debate afternoon, we’ll pitch on the needs from a set of stakeholders, and we’ll challenge those needs from the patient-focused perspective by also assessing the opportunities to work together to further optimise the conditions for patients, researchers, authorities and industries in Denmark.
This Afternoon debate is organised by the three leading cluster organisations in Denmark within the space of health and social care; biotech, pharmaceutical, medical devise and welfare technologies, namely, MedTech Innovation (www.medtech-innovation.dk), Welfare Tech (www.welfaretech.dk/innovationsnetvaerket) and Biopeople, Denmark’s Life Science Cluster (www.biopeople.dk).

Design and Technology for People with Disabilities
06 Oct 2016: 10.00-17.00
Odense Congress Center
The subjects of design and technology are widely discussed, both individually and as one. It applies to many different areas but within the area of developments for people with disabilities, there is still great potential to improve products and thoughts with respect to both design and technology. We need to bring attention to the possibilities and importance of both design and technology as individual matters and as one subject, when it comes to meeting the challenges and needs of the future for this group of citizens.
And when speaking design – it is not all about looks! Also thinking and promoting new ways are designs related – that we will explore further too.
Therefore we are glad to be able to host a conference on this matter inviting speakers and profiles in from both companies, with the political angel, users, relatives and designers with special insight into this area. We welcome you to participate in this one-day conference on where are we today, what do we want for the future and how do we get there.
On Friday 7th October 2016 you may join us at the Music Award for People with Disabilities.
The conference is organised by The Nordic Council of Ministers and the City of Odense.
