With so many pressures on healthcare systems, faster, lower cost healthcare innovation is an imperative of our time. “How to achieve more medical innovation, more affordably?” is one of the Great Challenges in health and medicine. So are there solutions?
You don’t have to be an industry insider to know that healthcare systems worldwide face massive challenges. From aging populations and the rise of chronic diseases, to soaring costs for some and lack of access to basic care for others – healthcare issues are constantly in the public eye.
The solutions are often as much financial, organizational or political, as technological. Nonetheless, new therapies, devices and aids to healthy living have an important part to play. Typically, bringing a new medical device to market takes seven to ten years. Drug discovery and development can be longer still.
So it is not just only about innovation for the healthcare market, but also about how to realize that within technical and financial boundaries. Open innovation can be a strong solution for that and is all about collaboration as well. With the current state of technology, a single-firm solution is a thing of the past. Specialist companies, knowledge institutes and governments are increasingly joining forces. As a result, innovations are achieved more rapidly, more cost efficient and are of better quality. This gives them a clear competitive edge in a highly competitive market.
This event will cover open innovation in the following healthcare topics:
