The fifth annual Meditech conference, an international health fair, is coming to Colombia’s capital from June 28 to July 1. The four-day gathering, held at Bogotá’s Corferias convention center, will feature more than 70 international exhibitors from countries across the globe to discuss all aspects of the health industry, including dentistry, while placing an extended focus on the tech aspects of care.
The main event, the International Congress of Hospitals and Clinics from June 29 to June 30, will play host to high-level sessions on the leading processes and emerging trends of the industry, with the highlights centering on the different ways that healthcare is delivered throughout the world. Exhibitors from throughout the world will share their experiences, including those from the United States, China, Germany, Mexico, Brazil, France, Argentina, Spain, Portugal, and Taiwan.
“Through the voice of international experts, we can understand the difficulties encountered by the implementation of reforms to health systems of Chile, the Netherlands, and Puerto Rico,” said Dr. Juan Carlos Giraldo, director of the Association of Colombia Hospitals and Clinics (ACHC), the association organizing the conference. Through these first-hand lessons, he says that the conference will help those within Colombia and the Latin American region learn new strategies to incorporate into their healthcare systems.
New tech trends will also feature heavily in the agenda. Google Colombia will be a headline presenter, for example, offering its perspective on how new collaboration and communication methods can help to transform how patients, healthcare providers, and a new generation of doctors interact.
Another session, run by Felipe Tabares, ACHC’s ethnological manager, will address working with the young personnel in the industry. He will attempt to illustrate how health professionals can better develop a relationship with millennials in the industry.
After all the sessions and panel events, the Colombian Association of Hospitals and Clinics will give away its most prestigious honor in its closing ceremony. It will hand out the National Hospital Insurance Award to the organizations that are striving for excellence in the safety improvement processes in health care for Colombians.
The larger event will also include the two-day Odontotech forum from June 30 to July 1. Now in its fourth year, Odontotech will focus on the key developments and trends in dental technology while celebrating 90 years of history in Colombian dentistry.
