Italian Healthcare Leaders and Communities to Collaborate at HIMSS24 Europe

From 29-31 May, Rome will become the epicenter for the best in Italian healthcare technology as global health leaders collaborate at the HIMSS24 European Health Conference & Exhibition. 

HIMSS24 Europe is the most influential digital health conference on the continent, drawing thousands of healthcare and technology leaders to the Centro Congressi Roma La Nuvola to discuss critical trends such as artificial intelligence, cybersecurity and patient data privacy. Registration is open for HIMSS24 Europe.

Attendees will get an inside look at Italy’s recently launched Fascicolo Sanitario Elettronico, a groundbreaking approach to health data that lets citizens trace their entire medical history online. Innovation funds like Smart&Start Italia are also helping cities across Italy build thriving healthcare startup scenes.

Partners from the HIMSS Italian Community will host sessions throughout the week including AISIS, AIIC, Donne 4.0, and Donne Protagoniste en Sanità. 

Italian speakers sharing the latest in healthcare innovation include: 

  • Elena Sini, Chair, HIMSS Board of Directors, and Group CIO, GVM Care & Research, 
  • Walter Ricciardi, Chair of the Mission Board for Cancer, European Commission, Professor of Hygiene and Public Health, Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore 
  • Dr. Alberto Tozzi, Head, Predictive and Preventive Medicine Research Unit, Bambino Gesù Children's Hospital 
  • Luca Chittaro, Head of the Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) Lab, Department of Mathematics, Computer Science, and Physics, University of Udine, Italy 
  • Fidelia Cascini, Professor of Public Health, Università Cattolica S. Cuore 

The incumbent Mayor of Rome Roberto Gualtieri is also set to attend HIMSS24 Europe.

Nicknamed La Nuvola (“the cloud”), the Roma Convention Center is located in the EUR district in South Rome. Completed in 2016, La Nuvola is one of Rome’s modern architectural wonders and a perfect place to connect with European health leaders and innovators.
