"Last week, a select group of healthtech shakers and breakers headed to a remote place
in Bavaria, Pfarrkirchen. The epicentre was the Deggendorf Institute of Technology campus.
The magnet was the DigiHealthDay (DHD). Prof. Georgi, the force of nature that brought us together.
Away from flashing lights and tsunami-size conferences, DHD felt boutique. Not because of bling,
but because it lets shine what matters the most: People.  Digitalhealth is about humans
helping humans, powered by technology. Thanks for your reminder.

To me, digital health is about humans taking care of humans, powered by technology.

My head is still buzzing from the conversations and great insights shared during DHD.
The energy of the students was contagious and it makes me very optimistic for the future of #digitalhealth.
Congratulations on a great event Prof. Georgi Chaltikyan and team!"

Pilar Fernandez Hermida (UAE & UK)



"Es war uns eine große Freude beim Digihealthday dabei zu sein, ich persönlich habe viel gelernt
und neue Perspektiven betrachtet. Und, was mich beeindruckt hat ist diese große Neugierde
der Studentinnen und Studenten. I like!"

Birgit Bauer (Germany)



"Excellent speakers and overall conference! I am truly honored to be able to have given a talk
at your conference. I want to say thank you for making this possible, and I look forward to meeting
everyone in person next year."

Dr. Harvey Castro (USA)



"Hosting those illustrious speakers at Pfarrkirchen for the DigiHealthDay 2023 is a
remarkable performance, but the true marvel lies in gathering students from over 100 countries
in this small little German town, crafting not just an event, but a lifetime of global experiences."

Philippe Gerwill (Switzerland)



"When we engage in active listening and learn from each other by having conversations,
we create an opportunity to shift our perspectives and change our minds on what we should
or could do to make improvements. Thank you. Looking forward to next DigiHealthDay already :-)"

Dr. Lars Lindsköld (Sweden)





"This conference was one of the very best experiences I have had the pleasure of attending.
This would not have been possible without the contribution of all of the people behind the scenes:
organizers, speakers, participants, and volunteers. I would like to publicly acknowledge my immense
gratitude to Prof. Georgi Chaltikyan for being the mastermind behind this experience. It was truly
touching seeing how many people’s hearts he has impacted; he is a clear example of how far
dedication and kindness can take you as a person, and I admire that.

As an AI master’s student who attended BIP program, I see a clear need for pushing the
advancements of technology in favor of humanity and making the shift towards digitalization
in the healthcare sector not only to save lives, but also to improve the quality of life of mankind."

Sergio Serrano Hernández



"… Intensive doesn't begin to describe this massively impactful week. With a limited background in AI,
my contribution was driven by my passion for health, my love for challenge, and my will to learn.
In a field historically dependent on human skill, it is beyond fascinating to hear experts unveil
the steps we can take toward enhancing precision, security, and revolutionary medicinal discovery.
Prof. Georgi Chaltikyan, renowned expert and head organizer of the DigiHealthWeek,
THANK YOU does not begin to express my gratitude for having me as a student. You really did
bring the family sentiment to this entire event and to all of us. Your masterliness and natural
disposition as a leader is inspiring, and I very much enjoyed our captivating conversations. To many more!"

Saga Brilioth



"Had a great experience this past week attending my second DigiHealth Day hosted by
Deggendorf Institute of Technology. It was a day full with insights and innovation in digital health,
thanks to Prof. Georgi Chaltikyan. Love the interconnected community in digital health.
Grateful for this opportunity and looking forward to DigiHealth Day 2024."

Dr. Rajendra Pratap Gupta, PhD Once again, DigiHealthDay has left us in awe with its
remarkable, international assembly of top Digital Health professionals, discussing
the latest challenges, opportunities, and breakthroughs in the field. A day filled with diverse
sessions and insightful plenaries, offering a comprehensive view into AI, Metaverse, Patient_Engagement,

host & venue

The faculty European Campus Rottal-Inn is a semi-autonomous branch of the Deggendorf Institute of Technology (abbreviated to DIT. In German the DIT is titled THD – Technische Hochschule Deggendorf, a university of applied sciences in Bavaria). ECRI was established in 2015 as a cross-disciplinary educational institution preparing multilingual, global graduates for international careers in applied healthcare and technical sciences. ECRI offers two full-time study programs in the field of Healthcare Information and Communication Technologies: Bachelor of Health Informatics, and Master of Medical Informatics, both taught in English, targeting not only local but primarily international students.

ECRI is located in the district centre Pfarrkirchen, in the region of Lower Bavaria (South-East of Germany). It is a charming touristic town, nestled among rolling, picturesque hills, close to the Austrian border and only one hour’s drive away from Deggendorf. Attractive cities nearby are Salzburg, Regensburg and Passau, and Munich is just a 90-minute drive away. The proximity to Austria and the Czech Republic puts the district in the heart of Europe. Pfarrkirchen has excellent school and education facilities, and offers many leisure activities. In the recent years Pfarrkirchen has become culturally renowned in the area due to its exceptional art exhibitions, museum nights and numerous festivals and events throughout the year. In the summer, the old town festival tempts thousands of visitors with its multicultural culinary and musical events.

The Deggendorf Institute of Technology (DIT) strives for academic excellence and ranks among the best universities of applied sciences in Germany. Founded in 1994, it is a young, modern and excellently equipped university offering relevant and practical courses set in a friendly, relaxed and safe environment. DIT supports its students with many facilities, such as student clubs, a sports programme, an international office, career services and child care centre. It is the perfect environment for students to shape their futures and move forward into academic success.

Over 8,500 students study in a range of bachelor and master level courses held in English or German (of which 45% are international students from 100+ countries). More than 1,500 students are at ECRI, in exclusively English study courses. DIT is committed to producing global graduates with international degrees: 165 partner universities around the world provide students with many opportunities to gain experience and earn credits towards their degree through foreign exchange semesters, internships and double-degree studies abroad. Additionally, great value is placed on German language training, which is tremendously beneficial for international students, helping them integrate easily into the Bavarian lifestyle.

The university focuses in three areas: firstly, full-time education; secondly, applied research & development; and thirdly, further education. Full-time education concentrates on the bachelor and master courses, whilst in applied research & development a vast range of research topics lead to practical scientific solutions that are used to develop new, marketable products, processes and services. In fact, many doctoral students are engaged in cooperative PhD programmes in this important field. Finally, further education is organised by the Deggendorf Institute for Further Education; its courses are geared towards students who work full-time whilst pursuing further education to advance their careers.

Review of past events

On 9 and 10 November 2023, the fourth DigiHealthDay (DHD) was hosted by the European Campus Rottal-Inn (ECRI). The international scientific symposium received an impressive 1,323 registrations from 105 nations and brought together more than 450 people on-site and online. Academics, students, policy makers, company representatives and digital health enthusiasts came together to discuss the future of technology use in healthcare. The amount of positive feedback marks the DHD as a leading platform for digital health research, education and networking.

Three plenary sessions, three online sessions, fifteen keynote speeches and one panel discussion: the event’s programme – this year focusing on ethics and regulations, innovation, entrepreneurship, and AI research – gave the DigiHealth community a platform to exchange ideas, discuss challenges and spark future collaborations. It was a rare opportunity for on-site attendees whose level of expertise ranged from academic backgrounds to simple interest, to engage directly with some of the world's foremost experts on digital health. International speakers included Dipak Kalra, PhD (United Kingdom), Rajendra Gupta, PhD (India), Anne Snowdon of HIMSS Analytics, PhD (Canada), Miklós Szócska, PhD (Hungary) and Lars Lindsköld, MD (Sweden), to name but a few.
