Following a successful collocated event in Sitges in May 2018, HIMSS and Health 2.0 continue to strengthen their ties and choose one of the most innovative countries worldwide to host the 2019 conference.

Over the course of the three days, the conference will focus on five overarching topics:
- Integrating health & social care
