European Society of Cardiology – Radical Health Festival lead clinical partner

About the ESC

The European Society of Cardiology (ESC) is a volunteer-led, not-for-profit, medical society. Our mission is to reduce the burden of cardiovascular disease.

The ESC does this by uniting experts and sharing knowledge through its network of 57 National Cardiac Societies across European and the Mediterranean basin, and 48 Affiliated Cardiac Societies around the globe.

Our 110,000 + members and decision-makers are healthcare professionals. They give their time and expertise freely, while continuing their daily, high-paced clinical and/or research work.

Everything the ESC does strengthens the prevention, diagnosis and management of diseases of the heart and blood vessels and improves scientific understanding of the heart and vascular system. Ultimately, our goal is to advance cardiovascular science to help people live longer, healthier lives.

The ESC is synonymous with robust, trustworthy and cutting-edge cardiovascular recommendations, knowledge and education. ESC Clinical Practice Guidelines, our flagship peer reviewed European Heart Journal and ESC Congress – which attracts more than 30,000 delegates each year – are used and attended by the global cardiology community.

ESC and Radical Health Festival

“Digital health is transforming the way we collect patient information and conduct research, as well as diagnose, monitor and deliver healthcare to our patients. As a provider of education for the global cardiology community, digital health is a strategic priority for the ESC. However, those at the sharp end of delivering healthcare are not the only actors in the digital health revolution that the world is trying embrace, regulate, optimise and pay for.

Being at the cutting edge of digital health is more than a strategic imperative for the ESC. It’s essential that we are part of this diverse group of stakeholders at the forefront of pioneering how digital health technology is integrated into the lives of the professionals who use it and the patients who will greatly benefit from it,” Prof. Gerhard Hindricks – ESC Digital Health Committee Chair
