Digital health: collaboration models

My, your or our project?

Find the best way of collaborating on digital health projects

The healthcare industry has been and continues to be criticized for lagging behind in the field of digitization. However, a lot has changed in the recent past – there is no shortage of numerous ideas and initiatives. So the question of “whether” has been resolved. But let’s go one step further and tackle the question of “how”.

How can digital project in the challenging healthcare industry be successfully realized? In-house, in cooperation with a start-up, through an accelerator program? What are the advantages and disadvantages of the different approaches? Which properties do have corporates to bring in and which ones possible partners? And which approach could be the best for you and your digital aspirations?

Munich is one of the outstanding locations of the biotech and pharmaceutical industry in Germany. So there is no better place to discuss the different ways of collaboration with this local community.

Decision makers from leading pharmaceutical companies, health insurances, hospitals, start-ups and company builders and accelerators will share their insights and learnings and will jointly identify the relevant success factors for implementing digital health projects. The event will also special offer the opportunity to have close look at and discuss one’s own digital projects with the experts and guests on site in a relaxed atmosphere.

The event is invitation-only.
