Festival of digital health to achieve the virtualization of essential medical care
In the medical environment, where the situation is getting tight due to the COVID-19 pandemic and while expectations for digital healthcare services of therapeutic apps, medical AI services, and telemedicine systems are growing, there is a big gap between medical institutions as users and companies as providers because it is difficult for the former to know how they should select and introduce those services. In light of such circumstances, DOCTORS and RX Japan will co-sponsor this trade fair in which we showcase digital healthcare services that can truly be utilized on the medical front together from the perspectives of doctors to diffuse and promote those services to medical institutions.
This trade show is going to be held within the Medical & Elderly Care Expo, which annually expects more than 14,000 visitors, including doctors. We will have many doctors from medical institutions experience all categories of digital healthcare services physically on-site to experience the usefulness and possibility of digital health themselves, and we will also propose what the digital healthcare platform should be into the future. In addition to the regular exhibitor slots, we have set special ones at this trade show to companies that intend to more proactively distribute their own digital healthcare services to medical institutions. The exhibitors with these special slots can continue the distribution to medical institutions by several wholesalers not only during the trade show but also after it.
