WHINN Pitchfire Competition

Part 1: Workshop

WHINN Pitchfire starts with an intense workshop in Odense. This is a day of training, discussion and feedback. The training session is arranged and moderated by CONNECT Denmark, which is a non-profit organisation specialized in helping start-ups and SMEs to the next level of commercialization.

We split you into tracks of 5 to 6 start-ups and SMEs. In two rounds you get to pitch for 5 minutes before a jury, which consists of members of CONNECT Denmark as well as invited experts and investors. The opposing jury gives feedback for you to strengthen your pitch. In the second round your pitch will be recorded for your own feedback.

Bits & Beers

Bits & Beers is an atypical event connecting businesses, creatives, entrepreneurs, and makers in a relaxed bar atmosphere, with the structure of a well organized business event. Talks are short, being held to a strict 10 minutes. The aim is that speakers get a chance to communicate their experiences and values, and the event creates opportunities for networking and interaction among the attendees.

Bits & Beers is held after work, where one can drop by for a drink and enjoy the atmosphere, including: DJs, interactive installations, performances, and other geeky/nerdy fun. In addition to the relaxed cafe area, we have a conference room with full presentation facilities where speakers from varied industries and walks of life join us to share their experiences and expertise on the theme of the event.

Digital Strategy

Connected Health - Can Cross-Border Collaboration Accelerate Deployments of Health & Care Solutions?

The track focuses on the consequences of patients getting out of the hospital early. How does that influence the collaboration across sectors, and can technology play a part in us giving the best patient care?

Sustainable Hospitals - Hospitals of the future: "health factories" or "wellness facilities"?

Hospitals have a new role in the healthcare ecosystem. Patients spend very little time at the hospital and only for very advanced diagnosis and care. The majority of their healthcare needs are now met in other sectors - but the hospital still plays a key part in the health and care process for people with acute and chronic conditions. The hospital must be very efficient in order to perform well in the short time patients are there, while at the same time contributing to the healing and care of the individual citizen in the entire care pathway.          

This track will feature sessions on the automation of hospital logistics, hospitals as 'healing spaces' as well as focus on the role and responsibility of hospital staff in the hospitals of the future.

Social Health - How do Social Factors affect the Health of the Individual?

Humans are inherently social beings and decisions about our lives are usually affected by the influence of the people and the environment around us. The same is true for decisions that affect our health and in this track we will look into how the community around patients affects choices of lifestyle and health – and how the health sector can actively involve not only patients but also their families, local communities and volunteers to improve the health and quality of life of citizens. The track will also feature inspiration from international work in the field of population health management where data is used systematically to design health services for communities and population segments.

Prevention - How is digital technology affecting our approach to prevention?

The track focuses on early prevention and how this is affected by the increased digitization and a high-performance culture.

Innovation and Sustainable Healthcare - What is sustainable healthcare and do we need to have the patient in focus?

The patient of the future & sustainable healthcare

Highlights of research and operational evidence from innovative healthcare solutions.

Implementing eHealth – is it really that difficult?

WHINN MATCHMAKING

At the official WHINN Matchmaking you can book meetings with the other WHINN attendees and design your own meeting schedule with pre-arranged face-to-face meetings. 

The event is a platform offering opportunities to meet potential partners and investors for new business and for R&D projects. You can meet representatives of companies, regions, hospitals, universities and research institutions offering or requesting innovative solutions, investigating new collaborations.

My Own Health - How to create personalised experiences in treatment and care?

Good healthcare outcomes can only happen when patients play an active role in the entire process from decision making to treatment and care to rehabilitation and lifestyle adaptation. The healthcare systems of today have had a tendency to view the patient as a passive receiver of healthcare, but the paradigm is shifting towards more patient-centered care – and new ideas such as personalized medicine and personalized technology are gaining ground. This session will take a look at some of the latest advances within the area of patient-centered medicine through sessions on personal devices for patient empowerment, personalized or precision medicine and the newer concept of personalized technology, where we realize that one size does not fit all when it comes to health technology and digital solutions.

Dementia - How can we facilitate a good life with dementia?

People with dementia get their diagnosis earlier in life. This creates new needs for support at home, and also new demands for technology and tailored care. But how do the public sector, and the private and voluntary sectors balance these needs, and the seemingly endless possibilities, with the ethical aspects of ensuring good quality of life and the rights of the people with dementia and their next of kin. This track shines a light on the mix between person centered methods, new technology and the questions and dilemmas that arise, when we want to help and support families with dementia.

Advancing e-mental health in Denmark – what needs to be done and how can we work collaboratively to ensure user-centered digital mental health and wellbeing?

Mental health is a major public health challenge, and mental disorders are the leading contributor to the burden of disease in European countries affecting more than 20 % of the population each year. The need for treatment is growing and the resources are limited - we need do something different.

E-mental health provides new opportunities for preventing and providing treatment for mental health disorders. Digital technologies in mental healthcare are envisioned to offer easier, faster and more cost-effective access to mental healthcare. The scope for integrating digital technology into mental healthcare is vast: video conferencing, developing novel treatments using interactive software, mobile applications and sensor technologies. However, despite a rapidly expanding evidence base demonstrating the efficacy of e-mental health, its implementation in clinical practice and healthcare systems remains low.

How can we succeed in advancing e-mental health? How do we integrate these new technologies into a clinical practice traditionally defined by conversation and face to face contact? How do we engage users in co-developing digital mental healthcare services?

Leadership and change in Healthcare: What are the opportunities and the challenges that follow the increasing requirements in organisations' sustainability performance?

Leadership and change in healthcare

What trends have a huge impact on the future of healthcare?

It is the dawn of a new era in healthcare. As global demographic shifts drive the course of healthcare worldwide, the medical industry is working collectively to respond to new demands. These global trends spell change, but also present opportunities for an industry to push the boundaries of what is possible through innovation that will impact lives worldwide. This session will take you on a ride to a smarter future.



What makes the new generation so significant?

The new generation's most unique characteristic may be their relationship with technology. They’ve also been described as highly generationally interdependent and they have strong opinions on how the healthcare system must be in the future. As patients, they tend to be more participatory in their health and well-being. Consequently, they demand to be well-informed, involved and closely consulted about the care they receive.

Knowing our future consumer,what should our approach be and how can we empower?



How do we design sustainable healthcare for a new generation?

This session will be a Design Thinking Workshop

We will address how hospitals in the Southern Region work with the patient in focus. Insights will be transformed into concrete recommendations and new solutions.

What is the new black in private-public cooperation?

The Nordic supplier survey follows up on last year’s study, where leading hospitals in the region revealed their challenges and priorities in environmental and sustainability work. This session will focus on how the mainly state-funded sector of healthcare inter-plays with private companies. However in Denmark

Traditionally, each sector is based on its own role in a patient course. Today, the trend is that healthcare should take care of patients across sector transitions. In Southern Denmark we work with private companies to develop and implement solutions that meet this need, for example Co-lab Denmark.



If we need to move from a performance driven strategy to a value based strategy – what changes do we need to make?

Panel Discussion



What's on the modern sustainability agenda & Value based healthcare – the new mantra?

When it comes to the modern sustainability agenda within the healthcare sector, the Nordics are among the leading regions. However, in other parts of the world there are organizations willing to work for better sustainability. Join a trip where leading decision-makers and experts from the Nordics and the UK discuss how they improved the sustainability performance of their organizations.

More value for the patient: policy makers are looking for new ways to manage the economy and quality in health care. Value-based management is one of the new mantras - a form of management that puts the patient's needs into focus.



What can we learn from Scotland & Why is it important, knowing our values, when we want new changes in our organizations?

This session will assess the impact of the integration of health and social care on service delivery and considers the next steps for overcoming challenges arising from the integration process. Development.  

The Scottish Government’s Health and Social Care Delivery Plan is supported by £128 million in 2017/18, which outlines steps that will be taken in order to improve the system, particularly in relation to patient experience and population health – and coincides with the development of new National Health and Social Care Standards.

Why is it important to know our values when we want new change in our organisations?

It is both time-consuming and complex to implement new changes. Often we can end up re-inventing the wheel and looking in the same direction. What if we navigated by values and invited users to help us redesign new organizational changes? This session will present several case studies, for example Rigshospitalets Heart Centre, the Heart Centre's work with value based leadership and the Capital Region, Bornholm Hospital and the new value based paradigm.
