Webinar: Treating the individual patient (Empowering early disease detection and personalized care)

Digital therapies have shown value in improving patient access and increasing engagement, but can they also drive an overall better standard of care? This panel will explore how digital medicine gives us the opportunity to move beyond merely treating the symptoms of a disease, and begin to manage patient care in new ways that allow individuals to be evaluated and treated holistically based on their specific condition.


  • What is needed to enable the personalization of treatments based on the patient’s unique symptoms and conditions?
  • How can digital therapeutics be designed to address early disease detection and individualization of care?
  • What new opportunities do digital therapeutics provide us for supporting patients and their entire care circle?


The panelists will share examples and successes they have experienced, and discuss strategies for getting these new care innovations into the hands of patients.
