The Good Morning from Finland show is a hosted, live, internet TV morning show with unique content on some of the latest developments in digital health. It showcases some of the coolest and most promising uses of new digital technologies in healthcare. 


Data, innovation and health. It’s going to get a lot more personal.

Can we marry unregulated data with regulated data for new, individual digital services and a fairer data economy? Do we have a happy couple or an unrealistic alliance? How can data help health and well-being services become more tailored? What role does data play in disease prevention? Come and hear our MED Talk answering these questions and unveils some findings in Sitra’s recent European Consumer Wearables Survey.

Finnish Biobanks as Biodata Resources: From FinnGen to Fingenious

Finnish biobanks have joined together in a large nationwide project called FinnGen, which will generate a vast amount of genome data from up to 500,000 biobank sample donors. The collaborative project aims to improve human health through genetic research, and ultimately identify new therapeutic targets and diagnostics for treating numerous diseases. All sample-related genome data will return to the originating biobank where it can be further utilized in subsequent biobank studies.

Fingenious® is the one-stop digital portal that provides researchers with a fast access to Finnish biobanks’ high-quality specimens and biodata, including genome data returned from FinnGen. In addition, information on possibility to find specific patients for further biomedical studies can be linked to samples. In this session we will discuss the value of Finnish biobank data in development of new treatments.

Digital innovations for stroke prevention and diagnostics

Stroke Data is a project targeted to co-creating new types of technologies and artificial intelligence innovations for stroke prevention and diagnostics to enable early identification of stroke cases. The aim is to support patients in preventive measures and to assist nursing staff in planning the care path and treatment. The aim is to reduce healthcare costs, the incidence of stroke, the mortality of stroke, and to improve the quality of life of those who suffer from it. How do the medical expertise, commercial and research perspectives come together to explore the needs and opportunities for future digital innovations?

Deep learning for image-based medical diagnostics

Interested in AI? Machine learning is one of the most promising new technologies in healthcare, greatly assisting the work of medical professional by improving the accuracy of diagnosis and saving time in the clinical setting. Come and hear from our experts on opportunities to utilize this exciting technique, what they have learned, and how they see the future of machine learning in healthcare.

Virtual reality and mixed reality aiding medicine

There is a burning need for efficient 3D visualizations in radiology. In healthcare the solutions hold a big promise e.g. radiological diagnostics, surgical planning, surgical operations and education.

The DPI project creates immersive ways to view medical imaging data in natural-feeling 3D environments. It applies VR, MR, AI, intuitive control by voice, gaze and gestures, and visual & haptic feedback, enhanced by AI. These technological advances, when integrated with new medical workflows, will deliver far improved clinical results with lower costs. Osgenic as a DPI member has developed an online surgical training platform, that leverages virtual reality for enhanced perception of 3D anatomy. The vision is to make surgery safer by providing meaningful and intuitive tools for structured and competency based surgical training.
