2 PM - 4 PM ET

WEBINAR
FORMAT
2 PM - 3 PM ET I Disease Management

In what ways can these new technologies contribute to the realization of better outcomes for patients at less cost to overburdened health systems?

3 PM - 4 PM ET I Clinical Trial Management and Wellness Care

Are researchers, physicians and regulators ready to embrace advanced, low-touch approaches to streamline the cumbersome infrastructure of clinical trials? And are insurers and health systems prepared to reward software-driven patient self-care technologies, particularly by recognizing prevention and wellness as an integral element of service provision?

Fed by the demand for remote technology applications in the midst of an unprecedented global pandemic, digital health is having its moment. Evidence suggests that digital applications in disease management and personalized care and wellness solutions can lead to significant gains in the productivity of health services. Among the benefits are a lowering of the cost of care, improvements in individual patient outcomes and helping regulation and clinical protocols become more targeted and efficient. The economic payoff is equally impressive – worldwide, the digital health industry is forecast to generate more than $800bn in revenue through the end of this decade. In many ways, the advent of personalized medicine would be impossible without digital health products – a rate of progress exemplified by the 13 software-based devices and apps nominated for this year’s Prix Galien for best innovation in the digital space. The sessions will be chaired by a member of the Prix Galien Digital Health Committee and will include a representative of the research team for each nominee product.

2 PM - 3:30 PM ET I Disease Management

Incubators and accelerators are pivotal in developing innovative solutions to address humanity’s most pressing health challenges. Why are academic institutions, major medical centers, and significant life science companies launching incubators and accelerators to offer guidance to biotech, digital health, health information, and medical device start-ups? Beyond financial resources, how are these groups working to advance ideas into the marketplace, and what is their impact?

3:30 PM - 4:30 PM ET I Clinical Trial Management and Wellness Care

An innovator’s connection to a leadership accelerator, incubator or private equity organization is a strong indicator of success. Financial support is part of the commitment, as are experience and connections. How do these investment and counseling groups help start-ups with their clinical trial design, navigate regulatory and payer system complexities or build a go-to marketing plan? Beyond access to cash, what makes the innovator’s connection to an accelerator, incubator or private equity group success critical?

11 AM - 12 PM ET I Hematologic Cancers and Gene-based “Tumor Agnostic” Therapies

How much more mileage is in store for blood-based cancer survival rates, which have been increasing steadily in recent years? And what is being done about the flip side of this success, expressed in more treatment-related morbidities, disease relapse and higher incidence of other malignancies?

12 PM - 1 PM ET I Solid Tumor Cancers

What is the state of progress in extending cell-based gene therapies to fight solid tumor cancers? How successful has the pharma industry been in building new therapeutic and diagnostic platforms to fight major cancers and address their prevalence in vulnerable populations, including the aged, minorities, and pediatric patients?

1 PM- 2 PM ET I Chronic and Autoimmune Disorders

Chronic non-communicable diseases now account for three quarters of annual deaths worldwide, with a fast rising percentage taking place in low and middle income countries. With this in mind, how important is incentivizing more industry investment in costly clinical trials and other research targeting key areas of unmet need in major chronic conditions like CVD? Will a better understanding of the common molecular signatures that underlie many serious autoimmune disorders result in more progress in therapeutic interventions, including prevention?
