Enriching knowledge and enhancing care through health data

i~HD @ LIFE SCIENCE LIVE - May 2019 - Finland

Following on from its successful conference in Gothenburg November last year, i~HD continues its Scandinavian tour, to the city of Turku in Finland. i~HD is running a scientific track within the LIFE SCIENCE LIVE 2019 conference, 15 and 16 May 2019, on “Maximising the value of health data to all”.  

Life Science Live is a new international event for professionals in the fields of pharmaceuticals and healthcare.

The Life Science Live conference is structured by plenary keynotes and three parallel tracks:

  • Scientific programme
  • HealthBio Partnering Day
  • i~HD track

The i~HD track consists of three half-day sessions:

  • The value of health data for Learning Health Systems
  • How hospitals can measure and improve EHR data quality
  • Complying with the GDPR when reusing EHR data in care and research

ach session will include presentations, panel discussions and plenty of time for audience questions.
i~HD’s President Dipak Kalra will also give one of the opening keynote talks at the conference.


The science content at Life Science Live will be coordinated by the University of Turku, Åbo Akademi University, Turku University of Applied Sciences and Turku Science Park Ltd (HealthTurku). The HealthBio event by Turku Science Park Ltd. is organized simultaneously with Life Science Live.

This momentous event will bring international experts in the field to Turku. The participants will include companies, professionals, researchers, students, buyers and investors. The exhibition stands at the event will present the latest innovations. The main theme for the 2019 event will be artificial intelligence and its application in healthcare, pharmaceutical development and biotechnology.

In biomedicine and medicine, the path from basic research to application is getting increasingly shorter. Turku’s universities have strong traditions in developing both pharmaceuticals and diagnostic methods. They are constantly on the lookout for new Finnish and foreign partnerships that will, through more intensive collaboration, lead to health innovations with a global impact. New forms of interdisciplinary collaboration are the best way to achieve this in future, says Kalervo Väänänen, Rector of the University of Turku.
