Dear health 2.0 members,

#1 if you are RSVPed and cannot make it, please UN-RSVP asap on our meetup platform to free your spot to someone from the waiting list.
#2 doors open at 6:30pm at Spielfeld. We will have the RSVP list printed at 3pm on OCT 25th as our reference. Who is RSVP’ed and on location BEFORE 7pm is allowed to come in.
#3 if you are on the waiting list and suspect a no-show from someone on the RSVP list, you can give it a try and come to the event location at your own risk: if we have free spots left due to no-shows on our RSVP list after 6:50pm, we will give away the spots to the people who are on location AND on the waiting list.
#4 if you are RSVP’ed and arrive after 6:50pm, we cannot let you in due to the people who we share your free spot on the waiting list.
#5 We’re sorry we cannot make an exception this time, no matter what title, relationship to us or bright smile you have. We appreciate your interest very very much and are looking forward to welcome you on time tomorrow at Roland Berger Spielfeld, kindly respecting the guidelines as stated above.


The digital transformation of healthcare has only just begun. Across Europe people use the benefits of electronic health records, AI assisted symptom checkers, certified med tech devices to continuously monitor body vitals to adjust their medication and share their data with their doctors.

In Germany we look at our insurance chipcard with our address on it, we phone specialty doctors for an appointment and cry tears of happiness when we get one in 6 months. We still run with our doctor’s prescription on paper to the pharmacy next door, video consultation is doable but not available and we lose our network connection on our mobile phones when travelling from Berlin to Hamburg. We hear a lot of talking that our system is one of the best, but where exactly are the beneficial digital health products and services for Germany in the next 3 years?

Join our panel discussion on what we can experience coming up until 2020. Discover best practice examples on how they are going to be implemented and find out if there’s still room for more.
