“COVID-19 forces us to rethink digital, healthcare and future oriented technologies. Artificial Intelligence (AI), Blockchain and other digital tools can contribute significantly to fighting the current pandemic but also future global public health challenges”, emphasized Nicole Formica-Schiller during her keynote address. “But to maximize this digital potential it is necessary to understand the entire ecosystem from using the right health data, global AI regulations and aligning with the appropriate digital infrastructure. This refers to all areas of the health value chain including healthcare systems, life sciences and biotechnology”.
During a panel discussion, moderated by Nicole Formica-Schiller, and with other industry experts from Pfizer Biopharmaceutical Group United Arab Emirates, Siemens Healthcare, Mott MacDonald and Pharmamed, a spotlight was placed on “Women in the Health Sector: Navigating the Pandemic”.
“For the best benefit of people’s health but also for economies and societies, we must be open and pro-actively approach the variety of digital opportunities nowadays available. This refers to global leaders and health innovators in research, policy making, the private sector and beyond but also for each individual”, Nicole Formica-Schiller asserted.
The event was brought to an international audience by GAWBL.connect together with the German Emirati Joint Council for Industry and Commerce and Sanad.
