Radical Health Festival Helsinki 2023 welcomes Lead Clinical Partner: European Society of Cardiology

The Radical Health Festival Helsinki is happy and proud to announce its partnership with the European Society of Cardiology (ESC), one of the largest medical societies in the world with over 120 000 members.

“A big warm welcome to ESC for joining this unique, radical community striving to revolutionize the current healthcare field. The best way to accelerate change, implement innovations and share the best concepts is to bring together people with ideas, knowhow, and a powerful mission”, says Päivi Sillanaukee, Ambassador for Health and Wellbeing at the Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland.

CEO Janne Aaltonen from the Finnish Medical Association says; “Most of Finland´s health data has been digital for 30 years. We recognize how valuable this abundance of data is. However, we have only taken baby steps in leveraging all these records to improve clinical and financial outcomes. Like many other countries around the world, we have a long way to go on the road to unleashing the full potential of data. Venues like the Radical Health Festival Helsinki are the perfect forum to strategize out-of-the-box together and make great advances toward this vision.”

Chaired by Prof. Gerhard Hindricks, the ESC Digital Health Committee will offer a 2-day accredited curriculum diving into topics such as:

  • Digital health innovations vs. regulations (MDR/AI-Act)
  • Connected health (mHealth and wearables/patient monitoring)
  • Adoption, implementation, and reimbursements
  • Electronic health records (EHR) and standardisation/sharing of data
  • Cardiovascular digital health success stories
  • Education/teaching
  • Digital therapeutics, in-silico trials (diagnostics and regulatory)
  • Big data, analytics, and perspective: connected health (mHealth and wearables/patient monitoring)
  • Patient empowerment

Prof. Gerhard Hindricks comments; “We are delighted to be at the heart of Radical Health Festival Helsinki and look forward to bringing the clinical and scientific perspective to this meeting. More importantly however, this collaboration is about creating exciting new synergies and carving innovative, practical and safe ways forward, with the many groups from the digital health arena who will be there.”

Part of the event´s exhibit area will be dedicated to digital solutions for cardiology.
