About the Content

COVID-19 has taught us that while planning for the worst-case scenario may seem like a costly and complex endeavor for any organization, it’s essential to be prepared for the unexpected. That’s especially true for the Life Sciences industries who are on the front lines in the event of a pandemic. Fortunately, digital technologies like artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML) and the internet of things (IoT) are helping by connecting disparate data to yield better insights for improved decision making and planning while keeping patient information safe. Connecting this data requires a secure and interconnected, digital ecosystem.

Discussion Topics

  • The Life Sciences technology network and infrastructure of the future
  • Overcoming the challenges of interconnected infrastructure including security, privacy, and organizational culture/change management
  • Driving better health outcomes through interconnecting distributed data on a global platform
  • Enabling new medical and IT technologies by shortening the distance between ecosystem partners
