Branded by the International Medical Informatics Association (IMIA), Medinfo is a worldwide key event in digital health that gathers scientists, physicians, teachers, students, companies, institutions, and decision-makers. After having hosted its previous editions in Brazil and China, in 2019, Medinfo is back to Europe. For the first time, the event will be held in France, in Lyon, also called the “French Tech metropolis”. The city is located in the heart of the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region, which also happens to be a major player in health technologies.
AIM (the French Association for Medical Informatics) is organizing Medinfo 2019 and is happy to welcome you in Lyon on August 26-30, 2019. At each Medinfo conference, participants have the opportunity to share knowledge in an international context in order to improve health and the well-being of interconnected citizens everywhere in the world! So, come to discover, discuss, and share your opinion and experience about this year’s topic: “Health and Wellbeing: E-Networks for all”.
Hosting Medinfo 2019 is an honor for France, the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region, and the City of Lyon. You will discover numerous emblematic e-health projects implemented in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region. This is the French “Silicon Valley” with one of the largest digital entrepreneurship ecosystems of Europe. Lyon, Grenoble, Saint-Etienne, and Clermont-Ferrand account for tens of thousands jobs in health and biotechnologies with over 100 public laboratories and over 10,000 researchers in this sector. In addition, Lyon covers many attractive aspects.
