Marketing Healthcare Innovations

Head of IoT & Digital Health
Ericsson NikolaTesla d.d.

Marc Ortmans Brand Communications, Chair, GEN UK

Ericsson Nikola Tesla has over last 20 years participated in and led several big eHealth projects worldwide and has been, ever since, evolving in adapting information and communication technology usage in healthcare. As a company that has innovation in its core with more than 15 years of managed innovations process, we are stimulating innovation and collaboration within and outside the company in healthcare area. In this presentation we will provide an overview of different projects, use cases and prototypes we developed as well as technology impact of 5G on healthcare.

2020 is ripping up many of the established ways we think, how we behave, what we consume and what we now believe matters to us.

Previously consumer demand and behavior changed relatively slowly so when we introduced a new product or service it was playing with relative known constants.

Marc will look at several brands from different sectors and how they have either chosen or been forced to pivot. Driven by the desire to survive in pandemic challenged markets some of these companies’ offerings are unrecognizable this end of the year from the beginning of the year. What has been the secret of their success and what lessons can the innovation focused healthcare sector draw and apply.
