Digital | Health Days – 21/22 Sept 2016 Sweden

By 11 October 2016

Last week Eventum Partners attended and presented at Digital | Health Days in Sweden. The event was well attended by a strong international audience, and addressed some excellent topics affecting the adoption of digital health solutions including Engaged Patients, Accelerators, Investors, Health Consumers and Augmented Reality.

Darren Spevick, Managing Partner of Eventum Partners was part of the panel with Jovan Stevovic from Chino.io; Magnus Ehrnrooth from Evondos and Petter Klingofstrom from Atrium Ljungberg, discussing the challenges for European digital health start ups in relation to Recruitment, Regulations, Sales and Locations. In summary, there will be pro’s and con’s of different locations because of access to talent, cost of living, employment laws, and that start-ups need to do their research to be in the best place for their business. When asked why should the UK be a place for European start-ups, Darren commented that “The environment in the UK is now very positive towards digital health, and during the last 9-12 months we have seen a big shift and move away from lots of pilot studies, to initiatives such as Medcity, Digitalhealth.london, the AHSN’s and various accelerators to enable new technologies to be brought into the NHS.”

Thank you to Nima Jokilaakso and his team for continuing to support digital health in Sweden and across the world, and thank you for serving lunch in large tin cans – a truly unique experience!
