Health is a unique area of innovation, and the digital transformation of this sector represents a great opportunity, whether it is to create jobs, improve access to care for the greatest number of people, or reduce the costs of health systems under pressure facing the ageing populations.

In the South Med region, while the Covid-19 pandemic has exacerbated the fragility and unpreparedness of these countries’ health systems in the face of health emergencies, it has also forced them to adopt innovative solutions to deal with unprecedented disruption.

There is an urgent need to restructure these health systems by deploying new technological and innovative solutions capable of providing a modernized and efficient service that meets the growing expectations of the populations. Moreover, the integration of digital technologies in health systems will encourage private sector participation and foster entrepreneurship in this field.

This session addressed the situation of this sector in the region and the conditions for a successful transition towards more efficient health systems.

This live stream gathered around the table:

  • Policy makers and national authorities launching specific provisions for Health Tech players
  • Tech hubs launching dedicated acceleration programs for entrepreneurs and who catalyze a pool of opportunities for investors
  • Startups from THE NEXT SOCIETY community renewing the Health Tech sector and bringing new solutions
  • Clusters, first witnesses of the sector’s value chain transformation and voice for the sector’s needs.
