Matchmaking event with speed-dating session for startups and health insurers, for new and needs-based solutions for patients.

Important note: Due to the corona situation, Insuring Digital Health will again take place in an online format in 2021. In the run-up to the event, registered participants will receive log-in data and further information.

Insuring Digital Health is a meeting platform for startups and health insurers to establish contacts and explore cooperation opportunities.

The event with pitches and subsequent speed-dating sessions is the ideal setting to present new approaches to solutions and to get to know the needs of providers in a practical way. The focus is on patient-oriented solutions for improved and individualized diagnosis, treatment and medication options.

The aim is to integrate innovative solutions from startups in the digital health sector into the service portfolio of health insurance companies.

Mature startups that can show at least prototypes and proof-of-concept are invited. In addition, decision-makers for digitalization from private and statutory health insurers. We also welcome stakeholders and those interested in digitization in healthcare as guests.

Participation in the event is free of charge. The first part of the event is also open to external audiences, the following speeddating sessions will be held in closed groups.

The organizers of this event are EIT Health and 5-HT Digital Hub Chemistry & Health for a potent digital health network in the Rhine-Neckar region.

A review of previous Insuring Digital Health events

Over the past two years, the Insuring Digital Health event has brought together startups and well-known representatives of statutory health insurers with pitch sessions, speed dating and networking opportunities. The aim was to present high-tech solutions with high patient relevance and potential cost reduction and to integrate innovative solutions from startups in the field of digital health into the service portfolio of health insurance companies.

Innovations are problem solvers. They are also of central importance in improving health care. Against this backdrop, the format provides important impetus by bringing together innovators and ideas from different fields.

Insuring Digital Health offers start-ups an early-stage conversation and consulting service with health insurers on the world of care in the primary health care market.

Not packing the meeting of start-ups and health insurance companies into an event where lectures are given in a "frontal lecture format", but instead enabling an interactive exchange, gave the event a pleasing freshness. The speed-dating format in particular favours direct communication between the participants and promotes the networking idea of such an event.

Sonja Noll, mhplus

The organisers have made an exciting selection of different start-ups, which have found a suitable forum here for a first meeting with the health insurance representatives present.
