What is it?

DigiHealthEx World Forum is a dynamic, outcome orientated forum for C-level executives, innovators and disruptors working in the field of digital health. For those bridging the gaps in digital, data and life sciences.

This is a 40-person Chatham House Rule, formatted forum in which industry leaders discuss and shape the future of their sector behind closed doors. They are hollow-square formats and not your standard one-dimensional meeting format meaning all executives engage in meaningful strategic and sector debate and discussion. The forums will address the key industry challenges head on, providing genuine outcomes for the executives and the sector as a whole.

The 40 seats will be allocated with no fewer than 36 executives and KOLs, with the remaining seats taken by  Forum Co-Hosts that may include 1 Pharma, 1 Global Advisory, 1 Law Firm, 1 CRO and / or 1 Investor. The GEO breakdown will roughly be 40 US, 50% UK and EU and 10% RoW and as we are focused on diversity, we are looking to ensure that at least 30% of the attendees are women Executives.

who is it for?

CEO, CFOs, CBOs, CTOs and executives of digital health innovators including from: Big Data, Health Analytics; Personalised Medicine and Quantified Self; Wearables and Sensors, Devices, mHealth applications; Payers and Providers; TeleHealth, Digitally Enabled Healthcare delivery platforms; patient engagement and digital therapy and Life Science companies (pharma, biotech, Dx, medtech). It is not for Technical specialists, engineers, business development and sales roles in digital health.

the case studies

CEOs and/or event partners put forward case studies – either success stories or current challenges and use the group as “consultants”. Each case study follows this format:

Headline – short and enticing
Nutshell – a concise statement of the issue
Background – the players, the issue, what was at stake, etc
What Was Tried? - what worked and what didn’t
Questions - clarifying questions from the group.
Peer Consultation
Review - what are you taking back with you? what will you try?

the general discussion

All the attendees in the room will be asked: “If you could have the answer to one question, that would fundamentally help change the way your business runs, what would it be?"

The questions will be scored– the highest score going to the question asked by the most people, and that becoming the focus of the discussion.

General notes:

  • Time will be managed carefully, with plenty of time for discussion
  • Each speaker will be asked to communicate a clear message & solicit specific feedback
  • The moderator will be briefed to guide the discussion to touch on all participants' concerns
