Digital transformation is taking our understanding of biology and how technology interacts with living organisms to a whole new level. As a hotbed of innovation and research, understanding how the latest innovations are impacting end users and patients is paramount. Hear about the core innovations across the BioTech sphere about innovations, scaling up production, and how the ongoing digital revolution is evolving healthcare. 

Much like other industries undergoing digital transformation, user data is in abundance, and this can be used to create products that are more tailored to users. Through health apps, diagnostic imaging and Electronic Medical Records, we now have access to far more data than ever before, which will be utilised in the BioTech industry. Medical devices are expected to become more user-centric, as medical devices have traditionally been manufactured with the user in mind being a hospital clinician. Companies will endeavour to build medical devices with consumers in mind, creating simplistic, user-friendly devices.
