In collaboration with Deloitte, the Swiss Chamber of Commerce is pleased to host a discussion to kickstart the topic of digitalisation in healthcare.

The healthcare industry is standing on the precipice of change – as healthcare leaders face the new challenge of driving sustainable digital transformation. In the last five years, the healthcare industry got a productivity boost through technology solutions that streamlined the process of diagnosing and treating an expanding range of conditions and diseases. But technology in itself is not enough to drive sustainability across the healthcare industry.

As we move into a new era where healthcare providers strive to become lifelong well-being partners, the entire industry must move concertedly towards making healthcare more personal yet accessible to the public. Several hurdles need to be addressed: Silos must be eradicated. The right structures must be set up. And this is where leaders have a new role to play.  How, then, should the healthcare industry evolve, as we march forward in Healthcare 5.0? 

We invite you to look into the future of healthcare with our upcoming DX Leaders episode – “Effective Leadership: A Panacea for Healthcare’s Sustainable Digital Future?”

The episode will delve into how we can build a sustainable future for healthcare 5.0 and how DX leaders can play a pivotal role in helping the healthcare ecosystem better adapt and digitally transform through cycles of disruptions across the healthcare value chain in today’s new reality.

The following are the panelists in the second episode:

Blaise Jacholkowski, Principal Consultant, Pharma and Life Sciences/Digital Health, Zuhlke

Miguel Rivera, Business Transformation Head, (Asia) Novartis

Dario Heymann, PhD & Chief Research Officer, Galen Growth

DX Leaders will be hosted by Andreas Enderlin, Chair of Digital Transformation Award and Lars Voedisch, Founder & Managing Director, PRecious Communications.
