Digital Transformation for Medical Affairs Summit

Building an Innovative Digital Roadmap to Help Redifine the Journey of Medical Affairs as a More Proactive Force in Customer Engagement

May 24-25, 2022- Philadelphia, PA, United States

Medical affairs teams are traditionally staffed with science, medical information, and health outcomes experts, but not digital transformation experts. To engineer high-quality customer experiences common in the consumer world, med affairs teams must internalize what "good" looks like to their customers, and what it means to their responsibilities.

With the pandemic waning in some areas, sustaining digital transformation momentum is paramount. The mission of this event is to provide perspectives and guidance on what companies need to do to improve their digital capabilities within Medical Affairs and deliver good customer experience through digital capabilities.
