    09.00 Coffee and registration

    10.00 The patient – what is important for me and MYiHealth?
    Despite the intense technological development in general and regarding digitalisation in particular there is a paradoxical lack of asking the patient what is needed and what would make a difference. Cristin Lind will kick off the 2 day conference setting the right focus from start – the patients’ perspective.

    11.30 Whole genome sequencing in clinical medicine in the era of Big Data
    Professor Wedell and her team provide nationwide diagnostics and expert advice on all aspects of inherited metabolic diseases. She will present how they have implemented whole genome sequencing for clinical diagnosis of monogenic disorders, with dramatic consequences as large numbers of patients now receive specific molecular diagnoses and treatment in early disease stages, improving outcome. Utilising their approach Professor Wedell and her team have discovered a number of novel monogenic diseases affecting brain metabolism, opening novel avenues for treatment.

    09.30 Parallel sessions

    Workshop 1: Making Patient outcomes come alive in reality
    Why is it so hard to have real-time analysis on how health care providers are doing for their patients? This workshop will provide three examples of how it can be done and what it takes to measure and create new patient care pathways.
    Speakers Karolinska example: Anna Göjeryd Ulander, Head of Healthcare Delivery & Andreas Ringman Uggla, MD PhD, COO, Karolinska University Hospital.

    Speakers: Professor Helene Svahn, VP Research and Innovation Permobil & Jamie Heywood, CEO PatientsLikeMe

    Workshop 3: Legal constraints and solutions on using patient data
    Are you struggling to understand what is allowed and not when it comes do data privacy and data protection? This workshop will give you an insight to issues related to patient integrity and legal regulations that may impact the development and implementation of new digital health systems. Cecilia will together with Magnus bring up current challenges and discuss issues that the participants suggest.
    Speaker: Professor Cecilia Magnusson Sjöberg, Faculty of Law, Stockholm University & Docent Magnus Stenbeck

    Workshop 4: Digital tools for behavioral change

    Speaker: Jen Hyatt, Entrepreneur

    Digital diabetes control beats drugs
    For the first time in human history, more people die from chronic disease than infectious disease. To solve this macro-economic problem, we at Holmusk believe that "early detection & early intervention" is the only feasible solution. Holmusk mission is to build full-stack chronic disease platform- scalable, clinically effective, patient centric digital health solutions - using technology and data sciences.

    11.00 – 12.00 Debate
    Combining social media and molecular medicine. What’s next?
    Today knowledge is extracted from isles of data to serve patients and society. The aim is for people trying to prevent disease as well as for patients control and access to data about themselves and compare to similar patients with a focus on patient outcomes. But is it just about collecting tons of data and having the largest social network? What’s next to deliver true prevention and health? Who is to benefit?
