What is the IHA?
The Intelligent Health Association (IHA) is a global, technology based and technology focused organization comprised of many new technology communities and societies all operating under one organizational structure with a common goal: to help drive the “Evolution to the Health Revolution™ ” through the adoption and implementation of new technologies in the health Eco-system. The IHA will accomplish this goal through the delivery of vendor neutral, technology agnostic educational programs in a partnership with the other health related organizations, academic institutions, government, technology community, and standards bodies. The Intelligent Health Association (IHA) is a “By Invitation Only”, organization, whose primary members are comprised of health related technology firms and other health organizations who have met IHA’s high standards for membership. IHA members have one goal in mind and that is to improve patient care and patient safety, while at the same time helping to reduce the cost of healthcare through the use of technologies. IHA invites representatives from the entire health eco-system to join our “Evolution to the Health Revolution™”.
IHP At Vitalis for a Second Year in 2018 – Returning May 21, 2019, Gothenburg, Sweden
Following a successful debut at Vitalis in Gothenburg, Sweden in 2017, the Intelligent Health Association returned with the Intelligent Hospital Pavilion from April 24 to April 26, 2018.
Building on our inaugural year, which featured an ICU, Patient Room and Leadership Theater, the IHA once again presented live, educational demonstrations at the award winning Intelligent Hospital™ Pavilion while delivering a number of compelling use cases across collaborating vendors that highlighted how multiple technologies can seamlessly, interoperate with state of the art, medical equipment and co-exist to improve the overall patient care environment.
New this year was the connected Smart Home/ i-HOME™ area where new software and hardware was demonstrated that can play a key role in positive patient outcomes, both pre and post- operative, while in the comfort of the patient’s own home.
Our HoloLens demonstration in the ICU provided visitors an opportunity to experience 3D mixed-reality hologram technology and learn how it can be used in pre-operative planning.
The Intelligent Hospital Pavilion will be back at Vitalis for a third year – May 21 – 23, 2019, Gothenburg, Sweden
