Technology - Virtual Roundtable

Accelerating the changing landscape of healthcare

4th November 2020 | 2:00pm BST
Healthcare remains front of mind as we continue to battle the ongoing global pandemic.

However, digital solutions are helping many medical and pharmaceutical facilities put their best foot forward.  Tech-enabled healthcare is dramatically improving the doctor-patient relationship by removing boundaries and giving patients an easier way to find and consult with doctors, pay bills, and understand testing results.

The possibilities for health technologies are endless. They include disease prevention and the prediction and management of population health needs. However, the fundamental role of digital technology is to improve the quality of data and information to advance the safety, efficiency, and quality of care.

Over the past decade, countries worldwide have explored the adoption of digital solutions with varying degrees of success. Key challenges include the complexity of different health stakeholders, as well as privacy and cybersecurity concerns around sharing data and allocating resources.

While the need for clinical autonomy and robust regulations to ensure patient safety is indisputable, how is it impacting the extent to which data is shared and innovation is adopted at scale? How can you better enable and engage patients on their care journey? How can you work to adopt and embrace digital technologies such as 5G, AI and IOT to evolve patient care while ensuring safety and clarity?
