partners4patients 2022 | matchmaking event with speed dating session for startups and health insurers, for new and needs-based solutions for patients

The digitalisation of European healthcare is advancing at an increasing pace in doctors' practices, telehealth platforms and hospital management. Insurers are also increasingly recognising the potential of new digital solutions to make access to treatment more targeted and easier for patients. In contrast, digital health start-ups are faced with the task of meeting patient needs and system requirements during development - especially with regard to reimbursement systems.

Insuring Digital Health, organized by Health in Innovation and the 5-HT Digital Hub for Chemistry & Health is a matchmaking event where health insurers and startups will come together on September 15, 2022 to discuss onboarding opportunities for innovative solutions.

For the fourth consecutive year, the event will provide a platform to connect the healthcare sector: on one side, health insurance companies, insurance companies, patient organizations, service providers, and on the other, startups developing and offering Digital Health solutions. In 2022, the event "Insuring Digital Health" gathers patient solutions that develop new approaches to improve diagnosis, treatment and mediation through the sensitive use of available databases, technological devices and algorithms. Startups that already have Digital Health solutions with a working prototype and proof-of-concept in this area can present themselves and their approaches to insurance companies and health insurers, and then explore opportunities for further collaboration in one-on-one sessions.

The goal is to integrate the startups' innovative solutions in the field of digital health into the service portfolio of health insurance companies.

The event with pitches and subsequent speed-dating sessions is the optimal setting to present new solution approaches and to get to know the needs of the providers in a practical way.

A review of previous Insuring Digital Health events

Over the past three 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.

Florian Brandt, IKK Südwest

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.

Cristina Montesinos-Handtrack, Techniker Krankenkasse

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.
