The launch of the Digital Pharma Circle (DPC) brings decision-makers in the pharmaceutical industry together to facilitate meaningful discussions regarding the advancement of digital health. By collectively addressing the key topics and challenges in the space, the DPC helps expedite the progress of pharma’s digital health initiatives and transform concepts into products that achieve a real-world impact.
The Digital Pharma Circle is a new initiative that brings a select group of leaders from within the pharmaceutical industry together for virtual events that help direct the development of digital health initiatives. Events are held throughout the year and focus on the topics that are most relevant for the practical implementation of digital health tools within pharma in a manner that generates value for patients, HCPs, and the broader healthcare industry.
The group of founding members of the DPC includes individuals from several major pharmaceutical companies, all of whom are directly involved in the implementation of digital tools in a variety of capacities. Beyond the founding group, DPC membership will be available to individuals working in a relevant position via online application. This approach ensures that members of the DPC are not only those with knowledge and experience in digital health, but are also in positions to act on findings, advance progress, and shape changes in how pharma utilizes digital technology.
“This initiative brings together many of the pharmaceutical industry’s most influential decision-makers in the field of digital health,” says Sebastian Gaede, CEO and cofounder of smartpatient, one of the companies behind the formation of the DPC. “In doing so, it creates an environment for meaningful discussions among people responsible for driving the advancement of digital health. The common thread throughout everything we are planning is how pharma can achieve a real-world impact with digital.”
DPC events are also being organized and moderated by knowledge and content partners. One such partner is Flying Health, a company with extensive experience in connecting innovative startups with established firms throughout the healthcare sector.
“As a knowledge and network partner of the Digital Pharma Circle, we are looking forward to sharing our knowhow on unlocking the potential of digital health data and digital patient engagement,” says Laura Wamprecht of Flying Health. “Digital health is becoming a mature market and pharma companies need to dig deeper into the areas of digital patient engagement, DTx and health data to create value.”
The first DPC events will be held in the fall of 2023. For more information about the Digital Pharma Circle and to apply for membership, visit www.digitalpharmacircle.com.
