Healthcare Innovation

The DayOne Conference is ready for take-off on November 12, fully online, in close collaboration with the BioData World Congress and presented by presenting partner Arcondis.

For the fifth time Basel Area Business & Innovation will bring together the best of its healthcare innovation initiative: hot topics, open debates, smart insights, bright ideas, high energy personalities and tangible expertise. At the DayOne Conference, all is set up to inspire and engage the growing community of healthcare innovators poised to shape the future of health.

Session 1 starts with the patient champions who will share their experience of the DayOne health hack together with the ecosystem partners who have been supporting this journey. After that, we will learn about four bright ideas that will change healthcare as we know it, followed by a panel talk with Thomas Szucs, Professor at the University of Basel and President of the Board of Helsana.

Session 2 will present stories from hard proven entrepreneurs and a discussion on what it takes to bring a digital health venture to success.

In session 3, all participants are invited along with the 25+ projects champions to engage in an interactive design thinking experience to help plan their innovation journey and contribute with their insights to these great ideas.
