About the Event

The ongoing digital transformation has disrupted nearly every industry and all aspects of the ordinary life. Patient engagement backed by the advanced information technologies in the medical service delivery process has been greatly changed, which has even more profoundly reconfigured the medical service industry. In this research, we study the cases from US, China and Canada on patient engagement to explore the emerging trends, and we discuss important theoretical insights on business model innovation implied by this vibrantly changing industry.
