The safe circulation of data that digital health allows is proving to have many benefits, among them improving patient monitoring and treatment
Europe has a promising and rapidly-developing health innovation sector and, as Healthware founder and CEO Roberto Ascione tells pharmaphorum, an ecosystem approach is crucial to continuing the digital transformation of health
Over the last few years the healthcare sector has been going through a fundamental transformation the world over as stakeholders grapple with how best to use digital technology.
Europe is no exception, and the region has been gradually increasing its focus on the digital area, driven by the strong institutional support for telemedicine, remote monitoring, big data-enabled personalised screenings and - soon - the adoption of artificial intelligence-based solutions for improving prevention and diagnosis procedures.
Someone who knows the European health innovation scene better than most is Roberto Ascione, a serial entrepreneur and global thought leader in digital health who’s also the founder and CEO of next-gen health consultancy Healthware Group.
Roberto adds that patient associations also play a key role within this scene, not only by promoting a more patient-centred approach to healthcare in general, but by supporting patients’ increased empowerment through their backing for new digital technologies.
