ISG experts say that the future of healthcare depends on technological innovation and connected systems

STAMFORD, Conn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Digital innovation and new operating models shaping the future of healthcare will be the focus of the upcoming ISG TechXchange: Healthcare and Life Sciences event, hosted by Information Services Group (ISG) (Nasdaq: III), a leading global researcher in technology and consulting firm.

Executives from Novant Health, Whoop, Baptist Health South Florida, Health Union and Alexion Pharmaceuticals are among the speakers scheduled to speak at the Oct. 12-13 event at Convene-Commerce Square, 2001 Market Street, in Philadelphia.

The healthcare and life sciences industries are undergoing a seismic transformation in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, as life sciences companies shift from a “blockbuster” to a “patient-centric” approach to drug development and delivery while adapting to new rules and calls for greater transparency, according to ISG experts.

Meanwhile, healthcare payers are grappling with accelerating digital transformation, regulatory and other pressures to fend off competition from hyperscalers and other disruptors, while providers struggle to cope with rising cost pressures and changing patient demographics by adapting to telemedicine, the Internet and more. medical items and other new trends.

In response to these changes, the future of healthcare will become increasingly digital, personalized and interconnected, say ISG experts.

“Personalized digital medicine is no longer coming, it’s here, and it’s going to become more common,” said Jenn Stein, Partner, Leader of ISG Life Sciences and co-host of the event.

Stein pointed to a number of digital innovations that are changing the healthcare industry, including “mobile and peripheral computing that facilitates decentralized clinical trials, digital tablets that report critical consumption statistics, a wearable device that records vital biometric data, and imaging technology that enhances treatment effectiveness. and procedures. All of this will depend on interconnected, interoperable, cloud-based systems and sustainable supply chains.”

Automation could be the key to overcoming the current staffing crisis among healthcare providers and attracting younger patients, according to ISG experts. Eric Eskioglu, MD, executive vice president and chief medical and scientific officer of Novant Health, will explore the role of intelligent platforms in improving patient engagement and provider efficiency during his October 13 industry presentation.

Later, Ellen Reilly, strategic advisor for health and life sciences at fitness and wellness apparel company Whoop, will explore the critical role of digital therapy in expanding patient access, care and efficiency in a fireside chat with Stein from ISG.

Digital systems connecting clinical development, patient care and supply chain processes are part of a growing collaboration between ecosystem partners that will be explored during a panel discussion between Tony Ambrosi, senior vice president and chief digital officer at Baptist Health South Florida; George Liado, former senior vice president and chief information officer of Alexion Pharmaceutical, and Ganesh Natella, head of healthcare at Mindtree

Olivier Chateau, co-founder and CEO of Health Union LLC, will join a panel discussion on how data can drive a better, more personalized future in healthcare.

Due to the pandemic, supply chain resilience will also be a key topic of discussion during the event.

“More than 90 percent of Fortune 1000 companies have experienced significant supply chain disruptions in the past two years,” said Bob Krohn, partner at ISG Healthcare and co-host of the event. “Building greater resilience in the complex healthcare and life sciences supply chains that deliver critical healthcare products and treatments means preparing for external factors such as geopolitics, regulation and competitive cost pressures, as well as internal forces, such as human talent and working capital, which can affect the supply cycle.’

Successful responses to supply chain threats, according to Krohn, include “organizational restructuring, targeted acquisitions and strategic divestitures to gain greater control over the supply chain, as well as digital transformation curated by chief innovation officers, driven by business leaders and facilitated by technology experts and security. »
