Jim, what do find most exciting about working in digital health?
“The way we deliver healthcare has to change. Despite amazing advances in pharmaceutical therapies and medical devices, our health systems today are still based on a reactive model of urgent, episodic care delivery. Digital health has the potential to change that and enable a new era of preventative, personalized, and precision medicine. Leveraging technology, we can help patients to manage their conditions and empower clinicians with the best information and systems to provide the best possible care.”

Piotr, what do you find most exciting about working in digital health?
“It has to be the potential it has to improve healthcare. The healthcare industry still hasn’t fully embraced digital technology and a data-based approach. This impacts everything from extremely long research cycles in both pharma and medtech, complex regulatory pathways, and inflexible clinical protocols, to a lack of integration of health data and insufficient engagement of patients in their own therapies and well-being.
Digital health has the potential to improve all of these aspects. By collecting data and turning them into insights, all stakeholders can optimize the way they provide and receive care. This means more efficient, more available, and cheaper healthcare that will result in healthier individuals and societies. Slowly but surely, we’re making it happen.”
