Date: Thursday, February 16th, 2023
Time: 10:30AM – 11:30AM PST
The theme of 2023 is the importance of clinical outcomes in digital health. Investors, health systems and payors are putting more emphasis on this than ever before, and for good reason. In a recent GSR Ventures survey, 50 investors in the healthcare technology space were polled and it was found that ROI and clinical outcomes will be the most significant indicators for success for digital health companies in 2023. Join this panel of experts as we dive into this shift for the industry, the reasoning behind the call for clinical outcomes and what to expect moving forward.
In this webinar, we’ll cover:
- Clinical evidence and outcomes — what digital health companies need to prove and to whom
- What goes into a substantial health economics analysis
- Key results from the recent GSR Ventures 2022-2023 Survey
- What digital health companies need to demonstrate evidence and quality of care
