Session objective: 
Digitalisation continues to transform healthcare at its core. Take inspiration from the bold strategic moves of key healthcare players, how they ready themselves rethinking business, capabilities and fostering a long-term innovation mindset. 

Being digital is imperative as the only way to keep pace with mounting complex real-world evidence from data sources like environment, genomic information, healthcare financing and social patterns. Harnessing digital innovation demonstrates differentiated health and economic outcomes. Despite this, the lifesciences industry has been slow in transforming from doing digital to being digital. Even large organisations are digital only in specific areas like patient engagement, product development life cycle, financing – given the complexity of operationalising a digital strategy.

Come join us in this unique forum with cross industry experts sharing their early successes and challenges of being digital in clinical development, IP, implementable use cases for AI and finally, the Swiss government’s perspective on the volume, velocity and variety of digital health.
