    The event is BTW inspired by Almedal Week (www.almedalsveckan.se ) in the town of Visby, Gotland in Sweden, so in itself the festival testifies to Danish-Swedish collaboration and exchange of ideas and knowledge.

    What is your opinion about personal healthcare data? – Focus on COPD

    Would you be willing to share your anonymous healthcare data if you knew it could potentially save lives? Daily there is valuable data being generated within our healthcare systems in Denmark. This data generated in our healthcare systems, such as for ex primary care units, wards and hospitals, could after analysis lead to improved treatments, a change of treatment guidelines, or detect patients in an early phase of the disease; all potentially life saving. In this day’s event we will present a series of examples where patient data has been used in studies around the disease area COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease). COPD is a a chronic and severe disease, where both primary and secondary care is involved. This disease affects the patient’s daily life and is potentially life threatening. We will show what and how data was used and what important insights it could generate. Come and see us we would really like to know your opinion.

    Taber vi til Sverige, igen?

    Fra Zlatan til Zara Larsson. Svenskerne kan noget med talent. Men det er ikke kun i fodbold og popmusik, de er bedre til at nurse unge talenter.

    Der er også grønnere på den anden side af Øresund for iværksættere og start-up-virksomheder. I hvert fald, når det kommer til medicinal-, biotek- og medico-branchen. Alene i 2017 blev 36 virksomheder fra denne branche børsnoteret i Sverige – heriblandt var to af dem danske (2curex og Initiator Pharma).

    I november 2017 blev Orphazyme det første danske biotekselskab, der gik på børsen i København siden 2010. Noget må vi gøre for at undgå at tabe til Sverige igen, men hvad? Toppolitikere, danske Med-Tech-iværksættere og eksperter stiller skarpt, når vi spørger, hvordan vi sikrer, at fremtidens Novo Nordisk også er dansk.

     What can your personal healthcare data learn us about Type 2 Diabetes?

    Would you be willing to share your anonymous healthcare data if you knew it could potentially save lives? Daily there is valuable data being generated within our healthcare systems in Denmark. This data generated in our healthcare systems, such as for ex primary care units, wards and hospitals, could after analysis lead to improved treatments, a change of treatment guidelines, or detect patients in an early phase of the disease; all potentially life saving. In this day’s event we will present a series of examples where patient data has been used in studies around the disease Type 2 Diabetes. This is a disease with increasing number of patients around the world. It is called a ”lifestyle disease” connected to factors such as overweight, diet, and lack of excercise. But new data based on genetic data, hints in the direction that diabetes is a more complicated disease than previously known, and this creates a need to review treatment guidleines to optimally treat the patients. Come and see us we would really like to know your opinion.
