Patient Outcomes-Driven Simulation
2:55 PM - 3:45 PM
In the field of medtech, simulation is revolutionizing patient care by enabling more precise, effective, and efficient healthcare. Companies along all points in the healthcare supply chain are using dynamic, digital representations of their patients, which we refer to as virtual twins, from pre-operative planning to post-operative monitoring. They are able to simulate and test treatments on virtual cohorts when in development and use streams of real-world data fed from sensors to the virtual twin when used in clinical trials and ongoing care. These insights allow medtech organizations to more efficiently bring new products to market, treat and manage patient conditions, improve outcomes and reduce costs. Most importantly, they are essential to creating true patient centric care, allowing the individual to understand their disease, treatment progress and take a proactive approach across the care continuum. This session provides an overview of the progress and visionary potential of Virtual Twins in medtech and highlights the key benefits and challenges of its adoption.
Learning outcomes for attendees:
- How this technology can create scale to reach more patients
- How this technology can anticipate and optimize for patient outcomes
- How to engage in a collaborative partnership with tech companies to be a part of building this world together.
