Upcoming Webinar: What’s in it for Me? – The Value of New Technology

SHL Group has announced that it will be holding a webinar discussing the value of new technologies in digital health and drug delivery systems on June 29. The webinar, which will be broadcasted live at 3 PM London / 10 AM New York time, will be hosted in collaboration with Pharmafocus under the topic “What’s in It for Me? – The Value of New Technology.” The talk will be co-presented by SHL Vice President for Innovation, Rasmus Renstad and SHL Connect Managing Director, Markus Bauss.

With smart, connected objects becoming so widespread in every aspect of life and the Internet of Things becoming an increasingly prevalent phenomenon, the question of their inherent value is often left out. In the area of drug delivery, it is particularly important to remember that the ultimate gatekeeper of any innovation is the patient, and that all designs must be centered around making the patient’s life as healthy and comfortable as possible.

This webinar will guide you through the key lessons and insights to consider when thinking about digital health in general and connected drug delivery in particular. Topics covered will include:

  • Evolution of technology in drug delivery
  • The patient and his impact on driving innovation
  • Success stories of implementing the new technology in the market
