37 °C Health Tech Conference in Stavanger – Tomorrow’s healthcare innovations today

Today we live in a technology rich, digitally enabled world that has influenced many aspects of our daily lives, such as how we shop, socialize and communicate, to mention just a few. However, the health and social care services have been lagging behind in adopting and utilizing health tech and innovation to support better care provision. 

Designed by the healthcare industry, for the healthcare industry. The conference looks at that year’s innovations in the area of health technology and presents new wellness apps and digital diagnostic tools.

We connect digital leaders and champions with world-leading health technology innovators, provide real-life case-studies and learnings from expert speakers, and make it easy for you to network with the people that matter – all designed to help drive digital transformation across the healthcare sector.

The #conference that takes the temperature of the #digitizedhealthindustry


Digitizing is a part of our health life, and those who analyze trends and user behavior also see a range of opportunities that both change and personalize the #healthcaresector in many different ways. #Digitization was the headline for the year’s #37-degree #LifeScienceconference in #Stavanger. Find out more about event!


Konferansen som tar temperaturen på den digitaliserte helseindustrien

Digitalisering av er en del av helsehverdagen vår, og de som analyserer trender og brukeratferd ser også et hav av muligheter som både endrer og personaliserer #helsesektoren på mange ulike vis.

Digitalisering var overskriften for året #37grader #LifeScience-konferanse i Stavanger.

Teknologi hjemme og ute

-Hva gjorde du sist du kjente på symptomer?

Josep Carbó fra selskapet Mediktor Corp fra Spania/USA stiller forsamlingen det enkleste av alle brukerspørsmål. Men usikkerheten brer seg i salen. Hadde han spurt «Hva bør du gjøre når du kjenner symptomer?» så hadde alle visst svaret, men når spørsmålet er «Hva gjorde jeg?»

Carbó kjenner godt atferdsmønsteret vårt. Handlingsmønsteret vårt er som følger: De aller fleste ringer sin mor først, før de googler, før de eventuelt drar på legevakten, før de bestiller en time hos legen. 70 prosent av oss verken oppsøker eller kontakter en lege for å få et kvalifisert råd eller en vurdering av symptomene.

-Mediktor er en robot som i løpet av få minutters dialog tolker dine symptomer og gir deg et råd om hva du bør gjøre; oppsøk sykehus, ring fastlegen, gå å legg deg – slike forslag. Mediktor forteller deg ikke hvilken sykdom du har, men gir deg et medisinsk faglig råd. Vi kommer nok aldri til å trumfe nr 1 på din ringeliste, men målet er å komme inn på listen før Google. Vi vet nemlig også at når folk få valget mellom en sikker kilde og en rask kilde, så velger de den raske. Det er Google raskest, men på langt nær den sikreste. Derfor har vi laget en AI-symptomtolker, sier Carbó.


TETTERE PÅ PASIENTEN: Josep Carbó, nr 2 fra venstre, i selskapet Mediktor bringer AI-doktoren helt inn i stua til pasienten. Thorleif Jansen, medisinsk direktør i KRY, nr 5, utvikler videokonferanser. Alle deltok i parallellseminar om hvordan teknologien driver fram nye helsetjenester. Diskusjonen ble ledet av Arild Kristensen, daglig leder i NSCC, (stående)

For det er en mitch-mash mellom den teknologien som de informerte og aktive brukerne har i sin hverdag, og den helsevesenet tar i bruk i dialog med pasienter og brukere. Som 2018-mennesker er vi mer eller mindre ubevisst vant til at teknologien faktisk vet ting om oss, og at algoritmer personifiserer forslag og valg.

Derfor var også et av hovedpunktene i parallellseminar om AI og velferdsteknologi og om hvordan teknologien driver fram tjenester og service i helseverden.

Det svenske selskapet KRY er en annen teknologibedrift som utvikler løsninger som bringer legen hjem til deg, istedenfor omvendt.

-Jeg er lege og spesialist i familiemedisin. Det vi si; jeg var en frustrert lege som ønsket meg bedre verktøy til pasientflyt. KRY driver med videokonferanser mellom helsefagfolk og pasienter, også i Norge. Selskapet er drevet fram av helseutdannede folk og ingeniører, sier Thorleif Jansen, medisinsk direktør i KRY.

Lærerik konferanse

Stavanger forum er leid inn til Life Science-konferansen som ble arrangert for andre gang. Konferansen retter seg særlig mot internasjonale og nasjonale aktører innen med.tech og har både et messeområde og et svært innholdsrikt faglig program med foredrag, debatter/samtaler og workshops, i år med et fokus på digitalisering. Hovedseksjoner, parallellseminar og workshop fra tidlig formiddag til ettermiddag, var tettpakket med interessante foredragsholdere, både innen forskning, med.tech og generell helseindustri.

Stavangers ordfører Christine Sagen Helgø ønsket deltakerne velkomne sammen med helseminister Bent Høie (H) som stod for den offisielle åpningen av konferansen.

Konferansen hovedforedragsholder var Erik Halvorsen, direktør for TMCx Accelerator innovation institute på Texas Medical Center. Han holdt en gripende og personlig innledning som satte den økonomisk, sterke helseindustrien i perspektiv om hva det hele egentlig handler om.


SPØRSMÅL: Engasjerte deltakere i salen spurte panelet spørsmål om deres #velferdsteknologiløsninger.


STANDS: Selskap fra inn- og utlandet hadde tatt oppstilling i messeområde på konferansen #37grader #LifeScience for å snakke om sine løsninger.


MINGLING: En viktig ingrediens på en konferanse er at folk møtes og diskuterer løsninger

37 ºC Life Science Technology & Business Conference – 20.06.2018

Yesterday , June 19, saw the successful opening of the 37 ºC Life Science conference and expo. Well attended sessions and positive feedback were the order of the day.

Below are some comments from our esteemed speakers who were happy to share their expertise and experiences with participants.


Dr. Norbert Windhab, leading the strategic project team for business and healthcare of Evonic Nutrition & Care.

Dr Windhab stated that this forum gives him the possibility to connect & understand where other people stand in digitalizing health, when asked what makes this event exciting.

His main message would be that Digitalizing Health for him is the evidence we have today in hand for a true paradigm shift, which is Prevention: If someone dries out you give him water and not necessarily drugs.

Dr. Norbert Windhab,Evonic Nutrition & Care

Mr. Eric Halvorsen, Director of Texas Medical Center.

Mr. Halvorsen mentioned that they have over 150 Healthcare Start-Ups at the institute, which they train and educate to develop their products.

His family is Norwegian so it is exciting for him to be at this event, and to connect with other like-minded leaders who are trying to transform medicine & healthcare from a digital perspective.

His main message is that Digital Future of Healthcare is here. The challenge is that there is so much amazing innovation going on, so many great start-up companies developing different products to help patients- Now it becomes a problem of how to stand out, how to differentiate. His message is: “Prove you’re different and show benefit”

Mr. Eric Halvorsen, Director of Texas Medical Center

Ms. Rajji Mehdwan, General Manager of Roche Pharma in Norway.

Ms. Mehdwan mentions that with her living in 7 countries really makes her appreciate this conference.

It is exciting that this event is bringing like-minded people together in one place. Having such a comprehensive program and great group of speakers on different topics in healthcare for two days and being able to learn from it is truly valuable.

Her main message is that we are at a pivotal point in healthcare, with technology clashing with health in a good way. “Look forward to great things.”

Ms. Rajji Mehdwan, General Manager of Roche Pharma in Norway
