Radical Health Festival Helsinki (RHFH) is a new pan-European and truly cooperative conference where international key players in digital health come together to create one of the largest health markets. RHFH is driven by a genuine, shared ambition to transform healthcare, deliver value, improve clinical and financial outcomes, and make health systems sustainable. Join the EHTEL activities and networking opportunities in Helsinki and be part of the radical revolution.

At RHFH in Helsinki, in 12-14 June 2023, EHTEL will facilitate Thought Leader conversations that share people’s experiences in managing the digital transformation of health and care systems in Europe.

12 June I 1300 1430 1

On Monday 12 June 2023 afternoon, EHTEL will facilitate two sessions developed in collaboration with leading European Union (EU)-funded projects and large-scale pilots that are members of the European Health and Care Cluster, like GATEKEEPER, SHAPES, ADLIFE and more. The sessions will focus on:

  • Challenges and opportunities of AI deployment in hospitals


With this session, we would like to discuss with key stakeholders what these challenges are and how to approach them from their perspective. We want to encourage healthcare organisations to involve multidisciplinary teams in the design and innovation process and focus on: data quality, patient privacy and ethical considerations, integration with existing systems, and resistance to change.

To support the discussion, we will start with a brief presentation of a few carefully selected use cases. The session will be chaired by the ODIN project with inputs from the AICCELERATEHosmartAI and GATEKEEPER projects.

  • Scaling Up Digital Health Services for Active and Healthy Living


The session will showcase use cases from large scale pilots in Europe with a specific focus on active ageing and with a holistic approach to health. Specific attention will be given to the factors which influence users’ adoption and upscaling.

A very concrete and informative session which will be of high interest for both the demand and the supply sides, it will be chaired by the project GATEKEEPER with inputs from the SHAPES, PhaRAON, SMARTBEAR and ADLIFE projects. Since 2019, these EU-funded projects and 9 others have been actively collaborating together and exchanging resources and best practices in a continuous way.

Learn more about the agenda here.

An EU Project Pavilion in the RHFH exhibition area will enable participants to engage in conversations with representatives of these large-scale pilots throughout the festival.

On Tuesday 13 June 2023 afternoon, EHTEL will facilitate a master class on:

  • Redesigning Hybrid Models of Care: a collaborative process.


Let’s look together at concrete experiences of regions that have been successful in redesigning their services, introducing new technologies, and involving stakeholders. Collaboration is a vital new ingredient. These three practical experiences from regions that have transformed their health and care system(s) demonstrate that redesigning services and digital health introduction cannot be successful without the appropriate engagement of all the affected actors.

Have a look at the detailed programme and the speakers.
