  • Panel - Evolving Business Models in Medtech with Focus on Digital Health

Building a successful digital health business involves several strategic steps. Although many digital health products and services feature cutting-edge technology, innovative technology alone does not succeed in isolation. Monetizing the digital health assets as a standalone or being a part of medical device solutions needs innovation in business plans to engage with various stakeholders, patients, providers, and payers. The panel will focus on digital health business models and challenges to success.
