Decoding Digital Health Conference

Improve Patient Outcomes, Realize Business Value, and De-Risk Innovation through the Thoughtful Application of Digital Health Strategies and Solutions

June 14-15, 2022- Philadelphia, PA, United States

Life sciences commercialization is at a crucial inflection point.

Evolving customer behaviors and needs have raised a number of core questions that pharma need to ask of themselves in order to optimize from top to bottom, remove barriers and isolate real life outcomes:
  • What role does industry play beyond the product supporting quality of care and outcomes?
  • How can solving customer challenges and improving outcomes translate into supercharged brand strategies?
  • What does digital health really mean for commercial pharma?
  • How do we collectively work towards better patient outcomes as a result of all our digital health efforts?
  • Are we too quick to allow perceived regulatory complexity to limit better customer experiences?
  • How can we ensure that senior management understands the why and supports the what to enable traction in digital health?
The 2nd Decoding Digital Health for Life Sciences event is focused on helping life science commercial teams successfully navigate the path to digital health innovation, investment and patient impact.

Participants will leave the event with the basis for their own digital health action plan; and an ability to better clarify a problem, evaluate options, reframe risk, and think strategically/tangibly on how to engage with digital health.
