Advancing precision medicine via novel digital solutions

In an era of precision medicine, massive amounts of structured and unstructured data are accumulated per patient. The amount of medical data is expected to double every 73 days by 2020. Big Data is becoming a major topic for the biopharma industry, despite a low level of digitization compared to other sectors. Adopting digital technologies is a prerequisite for gaining actionable insights from health and disease related data and to deliver on the promises of precision medicine. Global tech companies are investing heavily into novel ventures and initiatives and big pharma is scaling up their digitalization efforts. Smaller players such as start-ups and biotechs have limited resources and capabilities to implement novel digital solutions. However, they need to do so to advance and improve their R&D efforts.  The PERMIDES EU Project aims to accelerate the digitalization of biopharma SMEs via connecting them to suitable bioinformatics and IT partners and funding joint innovation projects. The session will discuss trends, challenges and opportunities associated with the digitalization of the biopharma value chain. Speakers with complementary backgrounds and expertise will share their insights and discuss with SMEs pitching their case studies and innovation projects facilitated via PERMIDES.

Digitization of chronic condition management

Life spans are increasing but so is the number of people living with conditions that require constant management outside of a hospital environment. From drug regimens to glucose monitoring, pain management to physical therapies, patients themselves are becoming more involved in their own treatment. Practioners and companies are developing ways to facilitate not only greater patient control over their own condition, but also tools and systems to manage chronic conditions effectively as well. This panel will explore some of these developments and the experience of the companies and organizations engaged in this space.
