In this Spotlight on Frontiers Health 2022, we will showcase notable highlights and discussions from the conference, including resources from pharmaphorum and Frontiers Health, as well as expert insight and analysis from those driving digital health adoption.

This year, attendees in Milan and online will discuss the future of digital therapeutics – improving patient and provider workflows, standardising definitions and regulatory schemes, and focusing on the patient experience. The conference will also showcase advances in digital care delivery and telehealth, diving into the realities of “hospital at home” offerings and the opportunities created by real-world evidence (RWE) from sensors and connected devices.

Other focus areas will include digital health funding, scaling, and business models; digital public health; and taking innovation inspiration from industries outside healthcare.
