Innovation as Strategy webinar: Enabling life sciences of the future

Innovation continues to drive the life sciences industry forward, propelled by the accelerating pace and expansive scope of digital transformation, with artificial intelligence (AI) emerging as a defining factor.

From revolutionising research and development to streamlining commercialisation processes, the latest technological advancements and business processes, as well as the evolving demands across health systems, have added a new layer of complexity and significance. Staying ahead in this evolving space is now more challenging, yet more critical, than ever. Innovation has shifted from being a mere “nice to have” to an indispensable element determining an organisation’s success.

‘Innovation’ is not something that should be relegated to one division or department. Rather, it is a mindset that should be embraced across the entire organisation. When harnessed correctly, it can act as a catalyst to drive others forward, do things that have never been done before, take measured risks, and adapt to new realities.

Thus, an innovative mindset must be adopted across all business units to stay ahead and tackle the most pressing healthcare challenges of our time.

Join the team at Healthware Group, an EVERSANA INTOUCH Agency, on Monday 25th of March at 15:00 GMT / 16:00 CET / 11:00 EDT as they explore their “Innovation as Strategy” framework, providing a guide for employing innovative strategies in life sciences. These expert panellists will reflect on what ‘Innovation as Strategy’ means to them, offering their perspectives, along with practical advice and real-world examples.

The webinar will cover the following key areas:

  • Digital transformation of brands
  • Connected experiences
  • Reimagining scientific exchange
  • Change management & shifting capabilities
  • Data driven enterprise
  • Digital Medical Devices and emerging business models

Attendees will gain a deeper understanding of how to innovate across business units, with inspiration for venturing into new technologies, approaches, and processes.
