Leveraging Digital Health to Predict, Prevent and Manage Future Health Crises

While COVID-19 continues to challenge health systems around the world, it is also prompting the acceleration of their digital transformation. Unleashing the power of digital health is clearly an essential and central key to promoting national and cross-border data collaborations, sharing real-time evidence with clinicians and citizens, mitigating health systems’ vulnerabilities, maintaining the provision of quality care in critical settings, and enabling a more precise and effective ecosystem response to future pandemics. Convening leading global health and technology experts this session will discuss how the current outbreak has influenced their digital transformation strategies and highlight their visions on how to leverage digital health to predict, prevent and manage future health crises.
