From Real-World Data to Digital Twins: Paving the Way for Personalized Healthcare

3:00pm - 4:00pm Tuesday, February 12
Orlando - Orange County Convention Center


Knowledge in healthcare is rising at unprecedented speed, soon by a factor of two - in less than a month. Better understanding of disease evolution, new diagnostic tools such as molecular testing and advances in treatment options have shown that this continuous growth of knowledge is the foundation for personalized healthcare.

On the other hand, this growth of knowledge creates also complexity at such a level, that its use for decision making - in both research and clinical care - requires more and more the use of digital tools. Moreover, vast amounts of clinical trial and real-world data is being generated across institutions and geographies that could provide appropriate scale to gain actionable insights for decision support tools.

Prof. Okan Ekinci, Chief Medical Officer for Roche Diagnostics Information Solutions, will provide insights on Roche’s Personalized Healthcare strategy. He will discuss how data-driven Clinical Decision Support Solutions evolve and help healthcare institutions in their digitization effort to ultimately improve patient outcomes as well as clinician satisfaction - at an increased level of efficiency and quality.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Outline personalized healthcare as a transformation journey
  • Identify the value of meaningful data at scale: how advances in imaging, tissue diagnostics and molecular diagnostics provide a high-res characterization of patient and disease
  • Examine the increasing role of the patient as a data donor
  • Identify what we can expect from advanced analytics, from Hindsight to insight and foresight
  • Ascertain if the digital twin of a patient enable simulation and prediction of outcomes
