Providing world-class healthcare is one of the key six pillars of the UAE National Agenda, which is in line with Vision 2021 that aims at enabling the country to achieve a world-class healthcare system. To achieve this goal, the UAE government is encouraging public-private partnerships to ensure all public and private hospitals offer patient-focused and quality healthcare.
Taking this objective forward, Eugene Borukhovich, Global Head Digital Health at Bayer, hosted a session titled ‘Pharma Digital Transformation: Changing the Experience of Health’.
“Digital transformation has brought sweeping changes within the healthcare industry. It has changed the way we work, do business and meet customer expectations,” said Borukhovich. “Keeping this in mind, Digitrans 2019 served as an ideal platform to lay emphasis on the importance of leveraging emerging technologies and the potential demonstrated by start-ups accelerate the cycle of innovation within the healthcare industry, while keeping pace with the evolving digital age.”
