On April 11, SHL Group, a world-leading designer, developer and manufacturer of advanced drug delivery devices, will lead a webinar titled "Personalization of Patient Care – The Next Frontier in Drug Delivery."
The webinar will look at the changing pharmaceutical landscape and discuss how connected therapeutics and personalized care converge to form the next frontier of drug delivery.
New FDA drug approvals are at an all-time high, with 59 new drugs approved in 2018.1 Despite the growing demand for medication options, the gap between the clinical efficacy of new drugs and their real-world effectiveness widens. Bridging this gap demands a systemic focus on medication adherence as typically 50 percent of people with chronic conditions fail to take their medications as prescribed.2
Non-adherence to medication is a complex and multidimensional health care problem. It stems from the diversity of patient behaviors and barriers, and can be solved with a personalized approach.
"Connected therapeutics, the augmentation of drugs through sensors and connectivity, are now providing patients with personalized ways to self-manage their condition and improve health outcomes. This next frontier in drug delivery, powered by connected therapeutics, will be data-driven, personalized, outcome-based, and accessible," said Dr. Ramin Rafiei from SHL Group.
Join the webinar to learn about where the healthcare industry is headed. Topics covered in this webinar include:
The talk will take place at 3:00pm (London)/10:00am (New York) and will feature speakers from SHL Group and QuiO Technologies. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up.
