While searching the solutions to address many of these challenges, the enormous evolution of technology innovation in the health sector happened. In the last decades have been developed many innovative and disruptive solutions, with a great impact on patients, health professionals and organisations themselves, not only at the technological, but also at the organisational and managerial level.
The Congress language will be Portuguese, with the exception of the Opening Ceremony that will be in English.
