Barcelona Health Hub is a non profit association on a mission to promote innovation in digital health and facilitate its transfer to the sector, connecting all the different actors from the health and innovation ecosystem: startups, corporations, health organizations, investors, etc Ideally locally in Barcelona, a reference place when it comes to technology and healthcare, Barcelona Health Hub wants to become a global digital health reference. BHH positioned itself as an international hub from day 1 and has been creating partnerships with relevant entities across the world.
#BHHSummit is the annual event of Barcelona Health Hub bringing together forward thinking innovators from across the world. A unique opportunity to discuss relevant and timely topics, showcase technological solutions and create synergies between the different actors through powerful networking.
In 2021, the conference was hybrid: it took place in Sant Pau Art Nouveau Site, the biggest modernist centre in Europe, where BHH is located and it was also accessible online.
The topic of the Summit this year was The Patient Journey of the Future. The role of the patients has been evolving: They are more empowered, take a more central part in their own health and decision making process… and technology is a big ally.
We looked at the whole spectrum of the patient journey, from prevention, to symptoms and disease management as well as the interactions with the different players of the systems: family, care team, peers etc. Other topics that were addressed during the Summit were Liquid Hospital: how the care is changing within the hospital setting and Data Economy: collecting quality data and making sense of them.

The concept of liquid hospital refers to the evolution of the care within and beyond the traditional hospital setting. The concept of hospital as we have known it for many years is evolving leveraging new technologies to expand the care while creating a more collaborative care involving the patients, their care team and their family.
In this panel, we will discuss how we can expand the care outside of the hospital walls through telemedicine, remote monitoring or home care while focusing the resources of the hospital on the more serious cases; how the concept of liquid hospital has been affecting the patients’ care and how we can overcome its current limits.
Covid-19 has raised a new context in society in general and new challenges for the National Health System. The digitalisation of the health sector has been on everyone’s lips for some time as a possible pillar for improving processes, but in the current circumstances it has become a necessity and a complementary tool for making our healthcare model much more efficient. In addition to improving the sustainability of the National Health System by optimising resources and reducing waiting lists, it has a direct impact on patients by saving time and unnecessary journeys. We must be able to translate the world of ideas into reality in order to improve accessibility for all patients, especially chronic patients.
In a globalized and constantly changing world, discover new ways to innovate trough an entrepreneurial ecosystem, promoting collective intelligence and impacting the territory.
In the past 18 months, we have radically shifted how we deliver healthcare. While many innovations used today seem new or novel, the truth is patients have been asking for them for years. What trends do the future hold? Let’s ask patients to find out.
Through our global network of innovation hubs, we focus on finding digital solutions that drive and accelerate drug availability, early-stage research, optimization, and access to clinical trials. We work in partnership with healthcare professionals to accelerate research and development, and foster operational excellence processes, creating a range of services that extend beyond just medicines.
Healthcare has been shifting from curing sick people to keeping them healthy as long as possible, by focusing on prevention and value based care. People are also better equipped with technology tools making wellness and care accessible when and where they want to and personalized to them.
In this panel, we will discuss the empowerment of the citizen-patients and the impact of this shift in mentality as well as the use of technology on the lives of both the citizens focused on their wellbeing and keeping healthy and the patients suffering from a chronic condition requiring regular medical attention.
We are collecting more and more health data every year. Each of us is a great source of data and a potential data donor. Those data can play a key role in empowering healthcare professionals to make better decisions, researchers to make progress identifying new treatments for patients or new diseases, all of this resulting in better health outcomes. Nonetheless those data are often protected, not accessible by those who need it or not of good enough quality.
In this panel, we will discuss the importance of using data to advance healthcare and how we can make the flow of data more accessible with concepts like OpenEHR or data economy a well as the obstacles that still remain to overcome.
