Megatrends are sustained, global, social, economic, political, environmental or technological changes. They are here to stay and will make a considerable and durable impact on the healthcare environment by creating new opportunities, challenges and risks for our businesses.

The Swiss HLG 2017 Winter Conference, has invited renowned specialists from the pharma, healthcare, information technology, finance, insurance and academic worlds to address this theme. Along with other topics, they will review and discuss the implications of the following Megatrends:

  • Demographic/epidemiological changes, including a global ageing population and the increasing prevalence of chronic degenerative diseases
  • Economic changes such as the increasing financial pressure on healthcare care costs and the impact of evolving geographical and developmental disparities
  • Biotechnology advances, like new opportunities offered by gene editing and immune checkpoint inhibition
  • Information technology development, especially big data collection and connected devices with e-health applications

The presenters will challenge our present assumptions by sharing their insights on these Megatrends and the impacts on our business models and deal structures in the foreseeable future. There will also be exciting open panel discussions, where input from all participants will be welcome, to better define, describe and address these upcoming challenges.
