The View of the moderator
Question 1: What drives you?
Developing and implementing personalised Closed Loop Medication which is safe, effective and affordable. My joy is to do this in close cooperation with all stakeholders: from the physician and pharmacist to the patient.
Question 2: Why should the delegate attend your session?
I try to achieve that attendants of the congress get a coherent and complete overview of the status quo of 3D pharma printing.
Question 3: What emerging technologies / trends do you see as having the greatest potential in the short and long run?
I think that technologies that provide a seamless pharmacotherapy care for patients are the most interesting. Therefore they have to be digital, add true value to the therapy and be efficient and affordable. To be practical they should support healthcare professionals in their daily work.
Question 4: What kind of impact do you expect them to have?
Support healthcare professionals in such a way that they can dedicate their time and attention to the most difficult and valuable tasks and personal care for the patient.
Question 5: What are the barriers that might stand in the way?
I think the affordability of new technologies, just like new medicines, could be a hurdle to take. Another one is the interoperability. We should not have to work in silos anymore.
