LS-M3 - Technology Forum: How digital health is changing care delivery for pharmacists and improving public health



Dr Lars-Åke Söderlund (Co-chair FIP Programme Committee, Sweden)
Mr Jaime Acosta-Gomez (FIP Technology Forum, Spain)


The FIP Technology Forum brings together experts from within FIP membership to exchange views on current activities, problem areas, best practices, and more, in technology. It also serves as a networking platform for finding new contacts among fellow pharmacists and allows members to work together on joint projects that bring added value and are aligned with FIP’s Strategic Plan. In this session, participants will learn more about the activities led by FIP Technology Forum as well as be exposed to an array of topics related to digital services in pharmacy, the challenges and benefits of digitisation in pharmacy and the impact on pharmacy education and training.
