Session 102
The Power of Strategic Alliances–Real-World Data and AI to Help Achieve Precision Health

Emerging current and rapidly developing digital technologies offer great opportunities for healthcare to achieve visions of providing personalized precision health. For biopharma, in particular, getting to decision support, improved diagnostics, genomics, and the identification of in-depth populations for clinical trials are all made possible through the use of artificial intelligence.

Integrating AI into workflows across the care continuum can help ensure patients receive the right therapy at the right times and improve patient care. As the pharmaceutical industry accelerates its adoption of these technologies, strategic alliances will be critical to AI initiative success. These alliances will create long-term partnerships that can assist every part of the organization in access and leveraging RWD (Real-World Data) and AI to deploy innovations that improve patient care across the care continuum.
