5th Mainfranken health symposium

Digitalisation and telemedicine hold enormous potential for a better quality of life and good health care, especially in rural areas: on the one hand there’s the high quality of care, participation in medical progress and last but not least patient autonomy, on the other hand the secure handling of extremely sensitive health data presents stakeholders with major challenges.

The 5th Mainfranken health symposium provides information about future opportunities and a dialogue with representatives from science, business, healthcare and regional policymakers.
