Types of Presentations

With the exception of e-posters, there is an opportunity for up to 10 minutes of audience engagement immediately following concurrent sessions at the networking and open roundtable.

Panel & Discussion
DURATION: 30 minutes

Panel presentations allow a team of presenters to offer different perspectives on a topic, initiative, or experience in a single session.

Oral Presentations
DURATION: 15 minutes

Oral presentations allow a speaker(s) to focus on a selected topic and share their experience, challenges, and successes. They consist of a discussion / presentation component and an audience engagement component. The duration of each component is at the discretion of the presenter, who may choose to assign appropriate presentation and Q&A time within the allotted time.

Rapid-Fire Presentations
DURATION: 7 minutes

Rapid-fire presentations spark dynamic networking discussions around important digital health topics. Multiple speakers in the same stream present in a tightly controlled format that keeps information and conversation flowing.

Each presentation covers the following three items on three slides:

  1. The healthcare challenge.
  2. An outline of the existing barriers.
  3. The solution.

DURATION: 5 minutes

An e-poster is a digital presentation of a project or case study that informs or advises the delegates of key findings or lessons learned.

e-Posters will be reviewed based on:

  • Content, clarity and impact
  • Concise messaging
  • Appropriate use of graphics
  • Creative use of media
  • Originality and overall visual appeal
