We live in an era where digital technologies have radically transformed everything from how we get our news to economies around the world. And, of course, healthcare is no exception. However, digital innovation presents many, many opportunities, but also significant challenges. Among them include how we can prove that digital technologies can significantly improve health outcomes, drive the discovery of new medicines and positively impact health and well-being globally. Another is how the cautious global health industry can best adopt to the rapid and massive changes sparked by digital tools and technologies.
