9:10-10:15AM | Part 5 – Pharma Gets Techie and Consumers Score!

Traditional pharma has been one of the least trusted industries in the minds of consumers. Yet, thanks to incredible advances in genomics and other “-omics” powered by cutting-edge technology, the old pharma model is evolving from a “one-size-fits-all” to much more targeted therapies and is going well-beyond the infamous pill.

9:10-9:35PM
Venetian, Level 2, Bellini 2004

In an age where 80% of the economy is service-based, pharma is also reinventing its model. And as new technologies are enabling untapped insights into the human body, wearables may serve as the foundation of a “beyond the pill” approach to delivering value.

This session will explore the future of personalized medicine, and how an unconventional partnership between Pharma and Wearable Tech is disrupting healthcare.
