Mannheim, Germany: – Leading European integrated healthcare provider PHOENIX group has partnered with data provider INSIGHT Health to host the first Healthcare Executive Forum (HCEF) in Deidesheim, Germany.
The HCEF provided the basis for a select group of healthcare leaders to focus on ‘Patient Centricity in the Digital Age’ and the potential for new technology to prove more individual and tailored services for patients.
Improved patient experience
The two-day event on 24th and 25th January took place at an old winery in Deidesheim. Several executives from industry partners were invited by PHOENIX group and INSIGHT Health to hold a series of focused debates on possible future programmes to improve service, individual therapies and patient experience across Europe.
The event kicked off with a wine cellar tour followed by a gala dinner.
In the keynote speech given by Dr Angela Coulter, a UK-based research scientist from Oxford University with focus on patient and public involvement, the diverse opportunities in engaging with patients more directly within the Digital Age were discussed. Dr Coulter is internationally recognised as an influential health policy analyst and researcher in the field of patient centricity.
As part of its All-in-One Services, PHOENIX group already provides individual solutions for client specific needs by leveraging IT and data to improve delivery and end user experience.
Representatives from the PHOENIX group and INSIGHT Health shared their own insights on future challenges with the participants.
“To me, the most important aim was to talk in a very pragmatic way about how to put patient adherence into practice,” said PHOENIX group board member Frank Große-Natrop.
“PHOENIX is offering a lot of services that hinge on this challenge and I am really looking forward to finding solutions on behalf of our patients,” he added.
Innovative digitalised solutions
The PHOENIX group presentation was delivered by Nemanja Janković, Head of Commercial Partnerships Europe and Stefan Jung, Head of Corporate Pharma Services & Sourcing.
Stefan Jung commented: “The challenge for us as healthcare professionals is to come up with innovative solutions for patients and be more proactive in this area using all of our modern digitalisation tools.”
Jan Tangermann, Head Sales & Commercial Excellence at Sandoz was one of those invited to the event. He commented: “I am a strong believer that in our digital environment we need to engage in connecting the dots even better than we are currently doing and drive partnerships. In this complex environment partnerships are crucial, and this event allows us take our partnerships to the next level.”
