External And Internal Convergence - A Cross-Sector Approach To Healthcare’s Biggest Challenges.

Wednesday, November 11 - 14:45 GMT

As health economies face challenges of improving outcomes while lowering cost, among many others, a cross-sector approach to health and care is vital. Alongside new biotechnologies and combination therapeutic approaches has come the rapid expansion of AI in multiple settings, new digital technologies and, importantly, the more tech-savvy and engaged patient, convergence is starting to make meaningful impacts. How is the industry developing new core digital capabilities, alliances, partnerships and innovative ways to drive better outcomes? 

  • In which ways are health and care industry leaders’ driving solutions to healthcare’s biggest challenges through different therapeutics, digital, and device combination approaches? 
  • To what extent and in which ways does external innovation fit into this picture for pharma companies like J&J? 
  • How can the wider industry work towards true and meaningful convergence to improve outcomes? 
  • How can this holistic approach and personalised medicine approaches go hand in hand?
