MAIN STAGE: A NEW PRESCRIPTION FOR PHARMA INNOVATION

Creating Patient Value from Innovation

Wherever in the health value chain you are, and however you may be compensated, the power is increasingly being put or pulled into the hand of the end-user or patient. How can the Pharmaceutical industry best harness a new kind of R&D that creates integrated, long-term health solutions rather than medicines or devices?

Who this track is for:

For Pharma managers seeking innovation and innovators who want to work with Pharma, this track will share with you the success stories and how to approach the challenges of development of digitised therapeutics and patient experience. You'll leave this event will a strong sense of the next steps you need to take. Unlike other digital pharma conferences, this event is about empowering therapeutic evolution, not just selling more. It's not just for Pharma, but to bring together the emerging ecosystem. And it's not about disruption, but collaboration for change. It's not just about adherence, but innovating new styles of patient journey for better outcomes.

Machines are now able to identify the genomic information of brain tumors without a biopsy using deep learning. Neural Networks can recognise skin cancer lesions at the accuracy level of an expert dermatologist and the triaging and support of mental health patients using intelligent agents could be the next frontier for underfunded community support services.

This track looks at the “lifecycle” of an app so it aims to bring together all those involved at any stage of this lifecycle.

And in the middle of the app journey, we want app regulators, investors and users who all shape and define when an app really does go from an idea into tastefully simple but powerful addition to the ever-growing health tech world.
