Agenda

ROUNDTABLE TOPICS


Designing partnerships in digital health


Why does collaboration make sense in DH? How should one think about approaching a potential partnership - what are the key ingredients in a suitable and good partner, how does one determine success parameters together, what are the challenges of partnering in healthcare?


Getting a good return on our health investments


Digital health success cannot be defined only by investment statistics. We must see evidence of efficacy, both clinical and financial, in order to declare a company a possible success. How do we enable our industry to succeed?


Wellness overtaking healthcare & the technologies enabling consumerization of healthcare


The move towards patient as consumer implies that there is greater understanding and demand by the patient to take charge of their health. It also implies people want more personalisation, more choice and more transparency. The combination of big data, mobile apps, social networks, and quantified self has created a market for better living and prevention. There's no going back.
