The Start-up Report – A sneak preview into the most innovative start-ups that have made an outstanding contribution in healthcare and lifesciences.
Keynote: Moving to a value-based healthcare system which is key to patient centricityWith healthcare consumerism on the rise facilitated by information technology, it is imperative that the healthcare community now reorients its focus from measuring success by volume or amount of healthcare delivered to its value. Defining value as the outcome per rupee spent, value needs to be clearly stated and rigorously captured. Let us understand from the leaders practising value- based healthcare models on what is the concept, how is value defined, why should it be adopted, and does it facilitate patient centricity.
Strategies for Patient Engagement beyond drug discovery and developmentDespite growing efforts to engage patients in research the pharmaceutical industry has yet to investigate and maximise patient involvement in the drug development process. As healthcare systems continue to evolve and establish patients as the primary stakeholders in their own healthcare decision making, the pharmaceutical industry will need to find innovative ways to demonstrate the value of its products relative to the outcomes experienced by the ultimate consumers of healthcare: patients. The session will talk on what strategy needs to be adopted since patient perspective on value is especially important now.
