About DMEA – Connecting Digital Health

DMEA is the successor to conhIT – Connecting Healthcare IT and represents a strategic evolution of that concept. Its aim is to mirror the entire digital supply chain including every process along the way. Step by step DMEA will expand into a platform representing every digital field of interest to all players in the healthcare system, both now and in the future. DMEA targets decision-makers in every healthcare sector – hospital managers, IT heads, doctors, nurses, healthcare policymakers and experts in science and research. As an integrated event combining a trade fair, congress, academy and networking events it gives participants an opportunity to find out about the latest digital healthcare developments and products, establish industry contacts and gain high-level qualifications.
