Executive-Level Program: Achieving Disruptive Innovation: Four Perspectives

There are many challenges confronting innovation in pharma and healthcare. With drug development costs and the costs of healthcare, biopharmaceutical companies and healthcare systems are trapped between the pressure to reduce development costs and the need to ensure better outcomes and provide enhanced value for patients, all while continuing to innovate and to manage the complexity of clinical trials.

New technologies will drive innovation in the pharmaceutical and healthcare industries in the years to come. Unlike other industries, the “Uber” of the life science industry has yet to emerge and the market remains ripe for digital disruption. The ability to disruptively innovate will be a critical factor in pharmaceutical and healthcare industries’ success in the future. Companies will have to embrace scientific advances, new processes and technologies to move new and innovative therapies forward.

Join us for this informative session featuring a panel of four experts on technology in the pharmaceutical and healthcare industries.
