Conference: Lateral Approaches to Innovation in Healthcare Conference: Lateral Approaches to Innovation in Healthcare

Date: 06. 12. 2017 at 08:00 yearly conference on digital health will take place on 6th December 2017 in Ljubljana – aiming to tackle main challenges in innovation in healtHcare with a different - lateral approach.  The main discussion will be around significant challenges in innovation processes in healthcare industry; lengthy commercialisation processes, access to financial resources to develop innovations and weak collaboration between innovators and health experts.

Healthcare innovation is hard.

We come to realise this over and over again. It's also why this time we want to approach innovation laterally, in a different way. We've all tried to innovate head-on, yet three problems keep reappearing: 1 - the innovator has a great idea with obvious health benefits for the patients, but the physicians won't listen, 2 - the product is very effective and reduces costs, yet the insurerers don't want to consider it, or - 3 - the sales cycles are extremely long, which makes financing hard to find.

Same problems can't be solved by always applying the same approaches, which is why we present you "Lateral Approaches to Innovation in Healthcare"
