Webinar: Healthcare innovation: How do you set priorities?

Category: Webinar

In our upcoming webinar, Professor Pascal Verdonck and Professor Walter Van Dyck discuss this complex challenge.

Healthcare innovation focuses on enhancing quality of life, life expectancy, diagnostics and treatment options – as well as improving the efficiency and cost effectiveness of the healthcare system. But how do we decide which innovations to prioritise?

Join us to discover how hospitals, medtech, pharma and biotech can all contribute towards value-based healthcare. We’ll explore diverse perspectives and different decision-making processes – and debate the balance between the health benefits and economic impact of innovation.
