Shaping the Future of Health

DayOne Conference – Shaping the Future of Health

September 9th 2019

Make September 9 your personal DayOne of healthcare innovation. More than 400 innovators, patients and experts across industries and disciplines will come together to explore, discuss and help shape new ideas and redefine healthcare. This year’s edition of the DayOne Conference will take place at the FHNW Campus Muttenz, just a couple of minutes by train from Basel. Save the date now!

As technology continues to develop at a great pace, the DayOne Conference will seek answers to crucial questions: Is the industry ready for the future? Can we deliver on the promise of digital transformation? Do we have the right mindset? Additionally, what fundamental changes need to be considered concerning society, future skills, ethics and business models enabling the next big step?   

The 2019 edition of the DayOne Conference aims to tap into the basic contradiction which stands at the very heart of every innovation: How can we create a better world and provide the needed return on investment? We will take a closer look at the ethical and economic principles that will have to guide us if we want to drive a future where emerging technologies will change health as we know it forever.

In the second part of the conference, participants will be invited to actually walk the talk by supporting and advising more than 20 innovation projects including the applicants for DayOne Accelerator. This hands-on design thinking exercise will bring together industry expertise and entrepreneurial energy. Your innovation projects are welcome, simply fill in this form. If you have questions, write an e-mail to Thomas Brenzikofer.

At the DayOne Conference, we aim to foster an open dialogue across industries on real world challenges and to deliver tangible results in a large-scale innovation workshop. Building upon the strength of the Basel Region – Europe’s leading healthcare innovation hub – makes the DayOne Conference a unique experience for every bright mind wanting to shape the future of health.

Previous DayOne Conferences

DayOne Conference 2018

The 2018 DayOne Conference - Shaping the Future of Health was held on September 11th at the Congress Centre Basel.

This was the first year as a Patients Included conference that helped to bring a stronger focus on the patient. The morning had excellent keynotes from Patient Expert Marie Ennis O'Connor, Maneesh Juneja and Bram Stieltjes and Andreas Wicki from the University Hospital Basel. These were followed with two monster panels capturing a diverse range of opinions.

The afternoon was given over to group work helping 23 projects to define their superhero story and then a final keynote from Koen Kas and recap on the day.

This year there was also a significant number of volunteer mentors and also a number of willing volunteers who helped make the day run smoothly. DayOne and the BaselArea team would like to thank them for their effort and enthusiasm.

This page will be updated with photos, keynotes and presentations from the day as they become available.
