HBI 2021 | New Vistas, New Opportunities


Sharon Lamb, Dr. Stephan Rau and Hamid Yunis will be attending HBI 2021, a key industry event which this year will have a particular focus on how the sector has been affected by COVID-19. Where does it create new opportunities? Might it lead to for-profit being side-lined by the public sector?

Digital health will also feature heavily. Is it really leading to productivity and outcome improvements? Or is there more hype than substance?

Panels of expert speakers will also be evaluating regions from the Middle East to the Nordic region and from Latin America to CEE.

There will be spotlights on the opportunities, dynamics, and business models in sectors as diverse as hospitals, assisted living, elderly care, and dentistry. Attendees should also expect a particular focus on fast-moving consolidation in the outpatient sector. And HBI’s famous investment sessions provide a unique forum to look at the sector’s financial prospects.
