On February 13, 2019, we organized our first webinar in collaboration with Ingrid Maes (Inovigate), a true expert in the health sector. For this webinar, we decided to address the role of digital health in the healthcare sector in general, and in the pharmaceutical and life science industries in particular.
Thanks to this online seminar format, we were able to organize a real international conference: our three speakers were all located in a different time zone! Ingrid Maes, our expert guest speaker, was present from Belgium, while Vincent Keunen (CEO & Founder of Andaman7) was in Boston at the time of the webinar, and David Levesque (VP Sales North America of Andaman7) joined us from our Californian offices.
Digital Health in Outcomes & Early value generation
Personalized healthcare is holding great promise, but health ecosystem stakeholders are finding personalized healthcare challenging to do at scale. Digital technology is to be a major enabler toward achieving the personalized healthcare vision.
Digital health is the convergence of digital technologies with health, healthcare and society to enhance the efficiency of healthcare delivery and make care and medicines more personalized and precise. Companies have to switch from selling products to selling outcomes and care providers have to switch from delivering interventions to delivering outcomes. The best outcomes can be achieved based on a patient-centric digital health solution, connecting industry, HCPs and patients to deliver personalized and cost-efficient outcomes.
This vision opens up many doors, brings new perspectives, but also raises many questions for the organizations concerned. Questions that our speakers tackled during the February 13 webinar.
- How do I demonstrate value to payers, providers and patients?
- How do I leverage technology to power my clinical research and improve PRO?
- How can I use digital platforms to promote communication with my customers?
- How can I deploy commercial engagement model innovation to strengthen my competitive position and better meet the changing needs of my customers?
- How do I navigate a changing landscape, to gain access to both providers and patient volume?
