Session Abstract – PMWC 2019 Silicon Valley
Session Synopsis: The “collective impact” movement has resulted in successful collaborations in the social sector as it brought together various stakeholders within an ecosystem to help remedy some of the most urgent problems. This multi-stakeholder panel – patient, payor, regulator, and venture representatives – will dissect this model and review its potential application for the precision medicine sector to understand what is required to create an ecosystem of shared value within PM, what obstacles need to be overcome, and what structure is needed to enable effective collaboration to reach common goals.
