How the data revolution is transforming biotech and healthcare--and why you can't afford to let it pass you by
We are living through a time when the digitization of health and medicine is becoming a reality, with new abilities to improve outcomes for patients as well as the efficiency and success of the organizations that serve them. In The Patient Equation, Glen de Vries presents the history and current state of life sciences and healthcare as well as crucial insights and strategies to help scientists, physicians, executives, and patients survive and thrive in the current disruptive, tech-driven landscape. The biggest challenge facing biotech, pharma, and medical device companies today is how to integrate new knowledge, new data, and new technologies to get the right treatments to the right patients at precisely the right times. This book shows you how to meet that challenge and embrace the data revolution.
Drawing on the fascinating stories of businesses and individuals that are already making inroads--from a fertility-tracking bracelet changing the game for couples looking to get pregnant, to an entrepreneur reinventing the treatment of diabetes, to Medidata's own work bringing clinical trials into the 21st century--de Vries shares the breakthroughs, approaches, and practical business techniques that allow companies to stay ahead of the curve and to deliver solutions faster, cheaper, and more successfully--while still upholding the principles of traditional therapeutic medicine.
