Implementing Digital Health Tools in The Clinical Environment: DOCSF Berlin at Frontiers Health 2019

Bridging digital health and clinical practice

Frontiers Health is designed with the audacious goal to accelerate the pace of progress in health innovation. We are fully aware that to pursue this goal we need to unite the entire ecosystem to solve concrete problems and improve patients’ lives. 

This year we are delighted to add our strategic partner, The Digital Orthopaedics Conference San Francisco (DOCSF). DOCSF is the iconic movement of like-minded innovators and leaders, coming together annually to bridge digital health and clinical practice. 

DOCSF is coming to Europe for the first time. We are honored to host their gathering on November 13th, as a partner event, with the aim to share its high impact experience focused on digital technologies and to encourage a fruitful debate with European digital healthcare influencers. 

“We are very excited to launch the Digital Orthopaedics Conference San Francisco (DOCSF) in Berlin alongside our partners, Frontiers Health,” said Dr. Stefano Bini, founder and chair of DOCSF and Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery at the University of California, San Francisco.

“We are very proud to support Stefano Bini in bringing for the first time to Europe from the SF Bay Area his DOCSF event. As DOCSF is designed to explore the real impact of digital health innovations into the clinical practice, it will be great to see how this will apply to Europe. DOCSF unique angle and mix of people goes well beyond orthopaedics offering meaningful models to any area of medicine”, said Roberto Ascione, CEO & Founder at Healthware Group and Chairman of Frontiers Health.

Execution Is Everything

The theme for the DOCSF Berlin is “Execution is Everything.” The workshop will focus on implementation of technology, rather than its potential. There are other conferences that focus on the technology. At DOCSF we want to talk about how to select a digital solution, justify the expense, socialize its adoption, and document the ROI.” Dr. Bini added. “We want to see if there is an appetite in Europe for our model, so we partnered with Frontiers Health which attracts the same high caliber attendees as our flagship event just before the J.P. Morgan Healthcare conference in San Francisco.”

What to expect in Berlin
