Digital Innovators: Wellthy Therapeutics' Abhishek Shah
Dr Paul Tunnah, pharmaphorum's founder, continues his Frontiers Health Digital Innovator's series by joining CEO Abhishek Shah live at Frontiers Health conference in Milan. According to Abhishek, COVID allowed Wellthy to focus on areas in which it could genuinely have an impact, and the company evolved to become a platform that enables life science, & MedTech companies to build and deploy regulatory compliant digital health solutions. Abhishek describes how forced digitisation affected the company and enabled change within the healthcare sector, unlike any force previously seen. The digital health realm has become more customer-focused. Still, Abhishek says customer obsession has always been his central part with Wellthy. He describes how his experiences and learnings as CEO, especially during COVID, made concentrating on the customer even more critical. Wellthy developed partnerships with pharma companies across Europe & Asia, which Abhishek says is helping his company address unmet patient needs through digital health solutions. He provides insights into pharma companies' structural changes and tips on telltale signs of good pharma partners. Check out the video to learn more about Abhishek's aspirations and inspirations and what it's like to be in-person at a conference after so much time away.
