Exclusive Interview of Board Member and Healthcare Innovator at Siemens Healthineers

Maëva Ghonda - ATARC Chair, IEEE Quantum Security Working Group Chair
Dr. Christoph Zindel - Member of the Managing Board, Siemens Healthineers

The global telehealth market is expected to grow at a CAGR (compound annual growth rate) of 37.7% and attain an estimated value of $191.7 billion by 2025, compared with an estimated value of $38.7 billion in 2020.[1] Telehealth is increasingly serving an important role in healthcare delivery because it grants patients access to care when and where they need it.[2] In the height of the global pandemic—which destabilized healthcare systems worldwide—telehealth facilitated expanded access to medical care and reduced disease exposure for medical staff and their patients. In Q1 2020, telehealth visits increased by 50%, compared with Q1 2019.[3] These Q1 2020 visits were generally from patients seeking medical care for conditions other than COVID-19.[4]

Siemens Healthineers—a global powerhouse—headquartered in Germany with over 170 years of experience and 54,000 employees worldwide (Stock Symbol: SHL) is shaping the future of this important telehealth category.[5] This industry giant is empowering healthcare providers worldwide on their journey towards digitizing healthcare, expanding precision medicine, transforming care delivery, and improving the patient experience. Additionally, the company is continuously developing its products and services with digital offerings and AI-supported applications that play a key role in next-generation medical technologies.

During this exclusive event, Maëva Ghonda will interview the great visionary: Dr. Christoph Zindel. They will discuss Dr. Zindel’s extraordinary path from medical doctor to titan of industry. They will also discuss Siemens Healthineers’ important role in defining the future of telehealth and how the company’s innovation engine runs at full speed—despite the pandemic.
