It estimated that digital products and services will grow to a market share of 12%, or nearly EUR 1 trillion, within the total healthcare sector by 2025 worldwide (and around EUR 232 for Europe). COVID-19 is expected to accelerate this digital transformation which will see a paradigm shift in medical care, moving from “reactive” to “preventive”.
On European level an increasing policy push from pan-European organizations (e.g. balancing the negative impacts from Covid-19, cross-border sharing of health data, strengthening and creation of new health related EU agencies) provides an opportunity for ESA to develop new strategic relations and activities and ensure a systematic integration of space technologies in the health sector. Satellites can support areas such as pandemic & disease surveillance, population and health management, but also the incorporation of environmental risks including air pollution, into planning, decision making and monitoring.
This session hosted will explore emerging domains in the health sector and invite industry leaders and stakeholders to discuss trends, needs, challenges and opportunities for the exploitation of EO derived data. Industry panellist will join the discussion in a round table format.
