Event description
Explore the healthcare community in Europe with us by playing Healthtech Jeopardy at SXSW 2020!

About this Event

Are you tired of panels and keynotes? Well, so are we! At SXSW 2020, we want to connect entertainment with education. After a successfull Healthtech Innovation Day at SXSW2019 where we inspired you in a traditional way, we decided to try out a bolder concept.

We will play HealthTech Jeopardy on stage at Berlin Saloon - an official SXSW 2020 venue !

How does it work? We will have five categories - just like the trend topics you usually get information on by keynote speakers and panelists - and 4 healthcare experts that battle to win the highest amount of money for answering some questions on healthcare trends across the world correctly. The trickier the question, the higher the amount - just like in old-fashioned Jeopardy you might have seen on TV.

------------------------------------------------

What topics are we going to cover?

We will explore the healthcare trends in Berlin, Barcelona, Paris, Antwerp, Stockholm and more - and of course Texas! Europe is a booming startup hub - and yes, we are Europeans. The opportunities are endless. One industry, however, that is experiencing a much-needed rejuvenation and disruption right now is Healthcare. Did you know:

  • Germany’s new "Act to Improve Healthcare Provision through Digitalisation and Innovation (DVG)" has opened up new freedoms for healthcare innovators.
  • Are you ready of the new EU-MDR's deadline in May? Do you actually know it?
  • Have you ever looked into the groundbreaking healtchare innovation coming out of IMEC in Antwerp - yes, Belgium!
  • Have you ever considered exploring the data-friendly healtchare ecosystem in sunny Barcelona?
  • Learn how international healthcare startups can enter the European market.

Our Jeopardy categories will therefore be:

  • Berlins Healthcare Scene: Berlin has a strong healthcare ecosystem and is a great health tech hub in Europe to start a company
  • Tech rocks Health: Technologies are being used in healthcare to support patients, empower healthcare professionals (physicians,, nurses, etc) and improve processes
  • Texas revealed: Texas is one of the key healthcare ecosystems in the US and a great place for foreign companies to enter the US
  • DTx: Digital Therapeutics are apps or softwares that can complement or replace a drug or traditional medical treatment
  • Money, money, money: Let's talk investment, reimbursement, resources, salaries, prices, etc

----------------------------------------------

For each topic we have won a "category host" that will give you some valuable insights before the game starts. Be prepared for 5 topic introductions, and yes, if you listen well, you might get some hints on the answers that might come up later in the game!

  • Lina Behrens, Managing Director at Flying Health (Berlin, Germany)
  • Nora Belcher, Executive Director at Texas e-Health Alliance (Austin, USA)
  • Stay tuned for more category hosts!

Meet some of our "Contestants":

  • Francesca Wuttke, Chief Digital Officer at Almirall (Barcelona, Spain)
  • Jonas Duss, Co-founder Kaia Health (Munich, Germany/ New York City, USA)
  • Stay tuned for more contestants!
