- Pharma and Digital Therapeutics: A Partnership For Success?
We don’t want to talk about DTx at a high level anymore. The devil is in the details. How are DTx planning to make money? We’re seeing two key trends. Stand alone therapies and those that add a new value proposition to existing interventions when used adjunctively with drugs. Drug-device combinations have some advantages in that they act as an adjunct to pharmacotherapy, they come with an audience in physicians and patients, they have a valuable partner in the pharmaceutical company for all their industry know-how and potentially accelerated path to federal approval. But despite the oh-so-obvious advantages, these combination DTx are yet to make their way into point of care at scale. We want to explore the existing landscape and future possibilities of this industry at HXLGGNY.
- Innovation in a large organisation: Identifying new business opportunities, and collaborating with internal and external stakeholders - A Northwell case study.
- All Things Amazon
The healthcare industry is curious to see how Amazon performs in the healthcare sector. Amazon in pharmacy and supply chain, Amazon in EMRs, Alexa in the hospital and at home, Amazon as a care benefits manager - the possibilities are numerous. What strategies does the company plan to use to enter new target verticals? What business models are at-risk with the advent of Amazon? Will Amazon’s success in areas such as retail translate across healthcare? How will today’s healthcare environment enable Amazon to succeed? We hypothesize and brainstorm as the different stakeholders in the industry who are all going to be affected by Amazon.
