Startup track

A new addition to this years FHIR DevDays is the Startup Track! We invite innovative health IT startups to attend DevDays at a discounted entrance fee and compete for a prize.

Your product will compete on:

  • how FHIR enables your concept to work
  • how innovative your idea is
  • the business value your product offers

The three pillars for DevDays are: education, sharing of ideas and networking. Don’t miss this opportunity to rub shoulders with the people from Google, Microsoft, EpicCerner and many other giants in healthcare and FHIR! This is a great opportunity to learn FHIR, network with the community, validate and market your idea, and get implementation advice.

Spots are limited: up to 5 companies (2 attendees per) will be accepted for the startup track, so don’t delay! If you don’t make it in, you can always come as a regular event attendee.

When

Thursday, 15 November 2018 in Amsterdam.

How

The Startup Track will run for the entire day on Thursday. We’ll start with a briefing in the morning, afterwards you are encouraged to attend the morning sessions, have lunch, and then work on your product in the afternoon. The product pitches (5 minutes each) and prize awards will wrap up our time in the venue and then we’ll all head for the night out!

The Startup Track runs on Thursday only, entry is 250 EUR per person. You will get access to all tutorials, speakers, and events. The winner receives a cash prize of 2500 EUR.

If you’d like to attend all of the conference days and not just Thursday, that is possible for 1350 EUR total (30% discount).

Track leads Abigail Watson and Vadim Peretokin will be on hand to assist you and answer any questions!

  • you have a product or a proof-of-concept with FHIR connectivity (or are close enough to have something working on DevDays)
