18 - 19 January 2012, Brussels, Belgium.
The IT @ Networking Awards 2012 (IT @ 2012) is an open competition for implemented, fully operable healthcare IT and medical technology solutions in healthcare. The goal is to raise awareness of some of the world's finest and most innovative local, regional and national healthcare IT projects.

Recognition
High-tech, high-cost medicine; ageing populations; patient mobility and staff shortages are only some of the challenges healthcare providers face today. Intelligent IT solutions increase cost-effectiveness, productivity and safety and help healthcare facilities to confront these problems. IT @ 2012 brings these innovations into the global spotlight and provides them with the recognition and media attention they deserve.

Their stories will inspire others, proving that challenges can be transformed into future opportunities and success stories.

Novel and Interactive
The core aim of IT @ 2012 is to learn from the mistakes and achievements of different top IT installations. The unique peer-to-peer voting system empowers daily users such as CEOs, CIOs, CMIOs, hospital and IT managers to vote for their preferred projects, as they are best placed to judge the real value of projects.
