Welcome Message

We are pleased to announce that the International Symposium on Digital Health (ISDH) 2019 will be held on 29th May to 2nd June 2019 in Hong Kong.  The symposium is co-organised by the Jockey Club (JC) School of Public Health and Primary Care of the Faculty of Medicine, and Stanley Ho (SH) Big Data Decision Analytics (BDDA) Research Centre of The Chinese University of Hong Kong with the support of The Hong Kong Management Association (HKMA) Institute of Healthcare Management and the National eHealth Living Lab (NeLL) from Netherlands. 


Digital Health has been steadily gaining attention as a relatively new field for improving public health due to recent technological advancements.  Many healthcare applications and insights have emerged, especially by harvesting the strengths of big data or machine learning.  As such, this symposium strives to promote interdisciplinary research on Digital Health by bringing experts from both healthcare and engineering sectors together to share their innovations on different aspects of the field, including eHealth, mHealth and other emerging areas such as big data and artificial intelligence.


You are cordially invited to participate in this exciting programme to share your insight and experiences in digital health.  We are looking forward to seeing you in this symposium!
