The Covid-19 pandemic has highlighted how we need to better respond to public health crises around the globe, adapting the current focus from designing solely sustainable healthcare systems to building ones that are not only sustainable but also resilient.
Technological advances in data science, real-world-evidence and digital therapeutics are underpinning this evolution and transforming the experiences of patients and physicians, but they mean nothing unless health systems maintain adoption and use in the post-pandemic world.
The first episode of the series, taking place on Thursday, November 12 with Janssen EMEA’s group chairman Kris Sterkens and Greg Williams, will explore the new and emerging technologies that are underpinning the evolution and turning point in healthcare allowing it to not just survive, but thrive.
