“Thanks to some outstanding pharmaceutical science and grit, vaccines are on the way, and an end to the pandemic is in sight,” said Intouch Group CEO Faruk Capan. “Nevertheless, our clients tell us they still need solutions they can implement now. This whitepaper is filled with data, lessons, and new ideas for what’s happening now, plus solutions for what comes next.”

“Most brands recognize the world changed – perhaps forever – in 2020,” said Mark Bard, co-founder of DHC Group. While a minority of brands and organizations are content to ‘wait and see’ what 2021 will deliver, the majority have already put innovation efforts into overdrive as they prepare for the data-driven, tech-enabled, and outcomes-focused future of healthcare.”
