WiDH presents: Digital Health and Sustainability

October 6, 2022 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Join us at our live event and learn all about how digital health can contribute to sustainable development, and the role healthcare companies, healthcare professionals and patients can play in pursuing ESG goals to shape the future of health.   

What to expect  

What does the future of digital health look like, and how can we drive healthcare innovation that is not only more human-centric but also more sustainable – financially, socially, and environmentally? How can companies, healthcare providers, digital health startups, patients and governments collaborate to achieve sustainable development goals together?

Join us in an interactive discussion on the latest developments in digital health and sustainability this October with healthcare innovator Cécile Tardy-Srinivasan from DayOne, a leading healthcare innovation initiative run by Basel Area Business and Innovation, and Carol Anne Krech, Chief Operating Officer, MiSANTO AG, a leading telemedicine company that is at the forefront of tackling the COVID pandemic in Switzerland.

About Cécile’s presentation:
Digital Health has been trending since the Covid pandemic. Patients and citizens are eager to take their health in their own hands. Hospitals, healthcare professionals and policy makers are seeing an explosion of data generated, incl by patients themselves. Are these data really the key to personalized healthcare and innovation? How do we ensure that healthcare innovation doesn’t widen or create new financial or social gaps and/or an environmental disaster? We will discuss how incorporating different facets of Sustainability is key when we are re-shaping our healthcare systems.”

About Carols presentation:
Digitising health needs a shift in the health care system – not only for patients, but also for professionals, politics and the public. Digitalised medicine seems to be our only chance and thus unavoidable if we want to ensure adequate primary care. Her speech explains the “pains” of the current un-digitised medicine and the “gains” of the future digitised medicine by showing how we can reduce hurdles and increase personal, environmental and economical sustainability
