3 Key Takeaways from Vitalis 2024

Vitalis 2024, the largest eHealth event in Scandinavia, recently took place in Gothenburg, Sweden. It brought together industry leaders, innovators, and enthusiasts to explore the latest trends and technologies shaping the healthcare landscape. As a company involved in the sector, we at Elastisys were super excited to exhibit and engage with current customers and other eHealth professionals. Here are three key takeaways from the conference that highlight the shifting paradigms and emerging opportunities in health tech.

1. AI and Machine Learning: The Future of Healthcare Innovation

One of the standout themes was the huge impact of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) in healthcare. Just like at KubeCon 2024, AI and ML were hot topics, highlighting their incredible potential to transform the industry.

Key Insights:

  • AI in Diagnostics and Treatment: AI is increasingly being utilized to enhance diagnostic accuracy and personalize treatment plans. This technology promises to reduce human error, streamline workflows, and ultimately improve patient outcomes.
  • Data Management and Security: As AI grows, so do concerns about data security and patient privacy. The conference stressed the importance of strong regulations to protect sensitive patient data while making the most of AI's benefits.
  • Regulatory Landscape: It’s clear that regulating AI and patient data is necessary. The "wild west" approach needs to be replaced with stringent laws and guidelines to ensure ethical and secure use of AI in healthcare.

AI and ML are no longer just "nice-to-have" technologies; they are "need-to-have" solutions reshaping the healthcare industry. At Elastisys, we’re genuinely excited about the possibilities and are committed to helping our clients navigate this new landscape while complying with regulations.

2. Preparing for NIS2: Ensuring Compliance and Security

Another significant takeaway from Vitalis 2024 is the upcoming NIS2 directive, which will have major implications for healthcare. Organizations need to start preparing now to meet these new requirements.

  • Compliance Challenges: Many organizations are finding the complexity of NIS2 compliance daunting. There’s a clear need for expert guidance and practical solutions to help them through this process.
  • The Impact of NIS2: Our Field CTO, Lars Larsson, addressed these challenges in his talk, "The Impact of NIS2 on Swedish Healthcare Software Services," at Vitalis. He translated the complex regulations into actionable insights using engaging metaphors and real-world examples, making the cybersecurity landscape clearer for SaaS companies in healthcare.
