Inspiring networking organised by EIT Health InnoStars Partner in Portugal
The representatives of the HINTT Prize 2018 final projects had a chance to share their main motivations and challenges faced during their design, assembly and implementation phases in health units. As a relevant hub for the promotion and encouragement of potential innovative projects in the digital transformation of the health sector, Glintt, an EIT Health Partner, organised a Networking Session for the finalists of the HINTT Prize 2018.
The goal of this annual prize consists of promoting the best technology adoption practices focused on a paperless environment, which leads to relevant benefits to patient safety, clinical decision support and global efficiency. The event, which was organised by the Innovation and Business Development Team, and Healthcare Market, took place on 26 October.
The Networking Session was an opportunity to submit some of the projects to the most interesting calls promoted by EIT Health. The open questions triggered a discussion on the major needs of both patients and various healthcare providers.
Moreover, the audience discussed the potential adaptability of each idea to other contexts and entities in the health system.
Finally, the variety of backgrounds within the present InnoStars associate partners enabled the exchange of innovative strategies to strengthen healthcare systems in Europe, contribute to a sustainable health economy and promote better health for European citizens.
This event gathered six out of the ten HINTT 2018 finalists. Therefore, medical doctors and nurses from Instituto Português de Oncologia (IPO), Centro Hospitalar do Tâmega e Sousa (CHTS), Centro Hospitalar Lisboa Central (CHLC), IT providers in the health sector (Glintt), delegates from Universidade de Lisboa (UL) and start-ups formed a group of 20 participants who gathered to evaluate disruptive projects with an impact on the health sector.
