Pharma in the Future: How to Build an Innovation Practice Today to Become a Life Sciences Company for Tomorrow

Hosted by: MATTER

October 27, 2019: 9:00am – 12:00pm

One day a doctor will reach out to you before you even know you’re sick. Care will shift away from the episodic, reactive and impersonal healthcare paradigm we have today to a model that is continuous, predictive and holistic.

In the not-too-distant future, patients will have a completely different dialogue with their healthcare providers, using digital technologies to diagnose and manage disease in a more precise, experiential and continuous fashion. Healthcare will be increasingly delivered outside of acute care settings, with a focus on comprehensive care and wellness that reduces the need for traditional pharmaceutical therapies. Even where drug and device therapies are needed, precision health tools, new payment models, and consumer demand for therapies that seamlessly deliver a better patient experience will converge to force life sciences companies to rethink and adjust their value proposition — or be left behind.

The life sciences companies that are able to succeed in this new reality have already begun working to implement a culture and practice of entrepreneurship and innovation, combining their current capabilities with those needed for the future.

Join MATTER in this session to learn what’s at stake for the pharmaceutical and life sciences industry and hear directly from pharma innovators on how they are building an innovation practice today that ensures they remain relevant tomorrow. Informal networking will follow the session content.
