We are in the midst of a digital transformation. Digital health innovation has the potential to change healthcare and the pharmaceutical industry. Yet, we aren’t seeing many successful deals between pharma and digital health startups. In this HIMSS Accelerate Health podcast, Kerry Amato interviews Naomi Fried PhD, founder and CEO of PharmStars, a recently launched pharma-focused digital health accelerator. Naomi describes the “pharma-startup gap”, the chasm that exists between big pharma and digital health startups, preventing more successful partnerships. Naomi also discusses how PharmStars plans to bridge the gap, yielding more successful deals and improved outcomes for patients.
