International law firm Simmons & Simmons has conducted a global survey to gain a better understanding of how digital health will shape the future of collaborations and investments in healthcare. In Q4 2018, the firm surveyed 441 decision makers and investors across the UK, the rest of Western Europe, North America, the Middle East and Asia-Pacific. Respondents worked for TMT companies, Healthcare and Life Sciences (HLS) companies and payors or were active investors in the sector. The convergence of digital technology and healthcare – digital health – has become a key driver of change for healthcare systems globally, with the mass adoption of digital technologies set to revolutionise healthcare and patient wellbeing. Payors and HLS companies must learn from the mistakes made in other sectors – and find ways to become the disruptors, not the disrupted.
