The rapidly evolving world of digital health, including content development, digital communication, digital sensors, data analysis and data systems integration, is colliding at top speed with the world of healthcare and life sciences. The digital industry is turning to hospitals, physicians and life scientists to tap into their know-how and expertise on a range of topics — from developing healthcare content to accessing data, developing meaningful ways to analyze big data, validating new tools, and understanding hospital information flows so as to develop better integrated data ecosystems. At the same time, hospitals, physicians and life scientists are looking to the digital industry on a range of issues, including designing, supporting and marketing apps; creating more efficient digital communication systems such as patient-physician or physician-physician; designing and implementing sensor-effector healthcare systems; and analyzing in a meaningful and useful manner the exploding amount of "omics" and other data.  Join us to explore new models for academia-industry collaborations in the digital health space. This session will discuss the value proposition for each partner— from financial benefits such as revenue-generating models, exchange of in-kind services and overall healthcare system cost-savings to non-financial benefits such as increased efficiencies in data translation, expanded public relations and marketing opportunities, and improved patient services.
