The healthcare industry has long been ripe for disruption, and with the rise of MedTech innovation, transformation is finally starting to happen. Significant advances in digital technology and clinical solutions have driven the development of smart devices, companion applications, early diagnosis algorithms, and the delivery of better care to patients. Nevertheless, the associated explosion in data has exacerbated healthcare’s fragmented and siloed data ecosystems.
Kyle Fenelly, Head of Digital Health Solutions - MedTech, Innovaccer, moderated conversations between industry leaders Christian Howell, Chief Commercial Officer, Cognito Therapeutics, and Dr. Kenneth Stein, Senior VP and Chief Medical Officer, Boston Scientific. The duo shared insights on some of the key challenges and opportunities at the intersection of healthcare and MedTech, including the importance of natural language processing (NLP) and the need for more contextualized patient data, among other topics.
