Preparing industry leaders for digital transformation

on demand
digital transformation

Digital transformation is taking root in every major industry, and healthcare and life sciences are no exception.

In fact, digital technology may prove to be more transformative in the healthcare sphere than in other industries as it forces us to rethink core concepts like episodes of care and small molecules in favour of emerging models and tools like ongoing virtual care, digital medicines and therapeutics.

The healthcare world is changing fast. Maybe even too fast for healthcare organisations and individuals to keep up.

That’s why the Politecnico di Milano Graduate School of Business is teaming up with digital health consultancy Healthware Group to offer a training course for today and tomorrow’s digital health transformation leaders. The Executive Programme in Digital Health & Innovation will cover telehealth and telepharmacy; managing open innovation; digital medicine and digital therapeutics; data science in healthcare; digital R&D; customer engagement innovation; and more.

In a fireside chat hosted by pharmaphorum’s Jonah Comstock on Tuesday 17th March at 17:00 GMT / 18:00 CET, Healthware Group CEO Roberto Ascione (author of the recent book “The Future of Health”) and Politecnico di Milano Professor Emanuele Lettieri will discuss recent trends in digital transformation in healthcare and life sciences that prompted the creation of the Programme as well as share a little about the Programme itself.

Comstock, Ascione, and Lettieri will discuss each of the modules mentioned above and dive into what innovators can do to prepare their organisations to meet this exciting future.
