Year after year well-known Health IT experts shape a Congress programme for the conhIT, appreciated highly by its visitors achieving reviews with top marks. One reason for the success of the participants is the practical orientation of the presentations, preparing strategic-theoretical subjects for practical use. A voting tool during each Congress session provides direct feedback as well as constant quality assurance. All the Congress sessions are translated simultaneously into English.
Every day in three parallel sessions key issues of Health IT were illuminated from all sides and lined with examples from daily IT life. In 2018 the entire Congress was performed under the motto "conhIT 2018 – Transforming Healthcare". Priority issues included "Cross-sectoral Care Management", "Process Management" and "Securing Revenues through IT-based Management".
The congress is organised by German Association of Healthcare IT Vendors (bvitg)in cooperation with the following associations: the German Association for Medical Informatics, Biometry and Epidemiology (GMDS), the German Association of Medical Computer Scientists (BVMI). The National Association of Hospital IT Managers (KH-IT) and the CIO-UK (Chief Information Officers – University Medical Centers) have provided contributions to the subject matter.
The program is then worked out by the Congress Advisory Board, consisting of stakeholders of science, politics, users, industry and health insurance companies.
