      Swissmedic is the National Authorisation and supervisory authority for drugs and medical products. It ensures high-quality, safe and effective medical products. As part of its mandate, Swissmedic regularly oversees online markets in the search for illegal medicinal products. This search is time consuming as well as resource intensive. To optimize this workflow, MediCrawl was developed by the innovation team within Swissmedic. MediCrawl is a machine learning-based platform developed in the Cloud that allows a centralized analysis of products of interest found online. These products are collected via crawling and are later presented to Swissmedic specialists. After two years of development, our results with MediCrawl are promising and a more permanent implementation in Swissmedic is underway as well as an international collaboration for this tool

      HEADLINER: Enabling better care, for more people, with AI Joland Rutgers, Vice President and Head of Innovation Excellence, Philips

      Around the world, healthcare is under immense pressure. Patient demand outstrips supply in many areas, patient experiences are falling far short of expectations and health systems are no longer able to deliver accessible, high-quality care consistently. AI can help us improve the future of healthcare by streamlining workflows and operations in the care settings, supporting clinicians with clinical insights, expanding the reach of patient care and enabling personalized self-care for patients. Many people can already feel the transformative effect of AI on healthcare. Data shows that 74% of healthcare leaders are already implementing, or plan to implement, AI in medication management and in remote patient monitoring, and 85% plan to invest in generative AI. Working in close collaboration with clinical and technological partners to develop AI-enabled solutions is essential to realising the full potential of this healthcare transformation and deliver better care to more people.
