The pharma and healthcare industries have been undergoing a period of rapid change and digital transformation over the last few years, and this trend is expected to continue as established businesses race to catch up with other industries and new market entrants.
Our Managing Director, Rob Verheul, joined the Digital Leaders from the NHS and Public Health England at their ‘Transforming healthcare in the digital age’ summit on 13th Feb 2019. He came away encouraged that there’s a tremendous challenge to undertake, but things have started well, with the right people doing the right things. Here’s an overview of the day.
Digital is an area that has caused big healthcare and pharma businesses to invest in new teams and capabilities, spawned thousands of startups bringing great innovation, created plenty of conversation, conferences, meet-ups and dedicated events. It’s clearly not a subject that is going to die down, as the industry looks to bolster the established ways of treating patients with new tools and services that can improve patient outcomes and their overall experience.
