Digital Data in Medical Research and Health Prevention
Päivi Sillanaukee, Ambassador of health and wellbeing at the Finnish ministry of foreign affairs
The Finnish healthcare system is world-renowned for the digitalised availability of patient data, which makes an important contribution to healthcare in both research and prevention. The interfaces and links between different healthcare systems and their databases enable efficient and cost-saving patient treatment and are a valuable basis in medical research.

Optimisation through innovative technology - Focus on the patient
Urs Seiler, Business Development, Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise Switzerland
Innovative technology enables companies to offer agile and customer-oriented services. Using a hospital as an example, it is shown that customer proximity, process optimisation, data exchange, human-human and human-machine communication are possible with a high level of data security at the same time. Hospitals, sector-related companies such as nursing homes and many other companies can benefit from this technology.

Health prevention and promotion: the role of the environment
Nicole Probst-Hensch, Head of the Department of Epidemiology and Public Health, Swiss TPH
Changing environments impact on public health and well-being. Environmental health risks are often not personally modifiable by individuals. Long-term studies with citizens provide the evidence for health promoting policies.
