In the Journal of mHealth, Phillip J. Meister, Within3 Vice President, Business Development – EU and APAC, writes about how med tech improves pharma’s public image. Better insights management can help pharma organizations increase and maintain trust among their most important stakeholders, including patients. He writes:

If pharma is going to capitalise on this approval bounce, there needs to be a collective shift from past behaviours. For many companies, med tech tools will be the root of sustained progress in the right direction.”
