Get ready for our third event of the Open Mic Next in Health Series: Healthcare meets the Metaverse. The series invites leaders from vastly different backgrounds to take the mic and share their view on the trends, which will influence the transformations in healthcare. At the brand-new Novartis Pavillon, we already made AI projections, discussed about the carbon footprint of the healthcare and life sciences industries, and plan to further spice-up the conversation by unfolding futuristic scenarios in the Web3 and digital pharma, thus fostering progress in the Basel Area.
As the Metaverse is still being defined, it seems increasingly clear that real-life benefits are already emerging for early adopting users and companies, and that technological innovations are shaping the healthcare experiences of the future. Yet, looking beyond the buzz-word, can this new ‘Internet of Place and Ownership’ branch out new channels for delivering care and have the potential to enable greater access, lower costs and improve patient outcomes? Are we prepared for the patient journey in the Metaverse?
