HIMSS has selected an elite group of highly engaged and connected healthcare professionals from across Europe to join the Programme Committee for the 2024 HIMSS European Health Conference & Exhibition, taking place 29-31 May, 2024, in Rome.
Elena Sini, HIMSS board of directors chair and the founder of the HIMSS Italian Community, shared her excitement for the conference committee: "With the help of the Programme Committee and the HIMSS European Conference finally coming to Italy, this is a unique occasion to understand the efficiency of the investment of the Recovery and Resilience National Plan (PNRR) on the digital maturity of the Italian healthcare."
Members of the Programme Committee represent key players in digital health transformation, including HIMSS’s European Communities, corporate members, frontline providers and international organisations such as the World Health Organization. Together, their reach extends across Europe and deep into the different sectors that comprise the European health ecosystem.
Tjasa Zajac, a digital health expert, influencer, podcast host and former journalist, is one of the many members forming the new committee.
“I'm privileged to bring this insight to my role as a new Programme Committee member at HIMSS Europe and to offer a fresh outlook on essential discussion points,” she said. “In light of swift technological progress and growing healthcare needs, platforms like HIMSS Europe have become indispensable.”
Other members include Ana Pina, MD, Ph.D., head of Digital Health and Care at FHVC - Future Healthcare; Helen Caton Peters, technical officer at the WHO Europe HQ Data and Digital Health Team; Paolo Locatelli, scientific officer of Digital Health Observatory at the Politecnico di Milano; and Christina Roosen, chief strategy officer at Dedalus International.
The Programme Committee’s insights and connections will help create a lively, topical conference agenda in Rome that will drive the audience and address key challenges and concerns.
HIMSS24 Europe will take place in Rome from 29-31 May, 2024, at the Centro Congressi Roma La Nuvola. The European conference is expected to draw in thousands of healthcare leaders who are creating tomorrow’s health with education, innovation and collaboration with diverse nations.
