The Future for Health (FTR4H), an international platform and think tank focused on digital health, will be a part of MEDICA 2017 (November 13–16, 2017 in Düsseldorf, Germany) for the first time. The FTR4H LAB will be located within the USA Pavilion, allowing U.S. companies to exhibit and highlight their latest technological advancements in the digital health space. The LAB also explores how digital transformation, such as mobile, IoT and data, are affecting the healthcare industry.
