A @pharmaguy podcast recently addressed this issue, featuring Bertalan Mesko, MD, founder and managing director of, Silja Chouquet, owner and CEO of whydot GmbH, and our own Spitz (@SpitzStrategy). Listen in to get a good overview of the open letter that spurred the conversation, and discover how these questions lie at the very heart of challenges facing digital health today.
