Global health has developed tremendously over the last 30 years with technologies now geared towards extending life, introducing advanced diagnosis, and newer treatments for previously incurable conditions. Nevertheless, nations worldwide struggle to provide effective and quality healthcare at bearable costs. For emerging countries such as Mexico the challenges are even higher. For both public and private sectors, making healthcare available to the totality of the population is a critical issue. Access and Sustainability are the main goals providers, industry, and payers should aim at in this new healthcare paradigm. In this sense, technology and democratic use of health information can be the pillars to build a more efficient, quality driven, and profitable healthcare ecosystem. We invite you to discuss the impact of the Digital Transformation in the Mexican healthcare market.

Oil & Gas and Digital Transformation: Expanding Opportunities

Roberta Gamble, Partner, Energy & Environment, Frost & Sullivan

The Mexican energy industry is ripe for change, growth and progress thanks to the market's policy reforms. The country has robust and under-utilized shale deposits as well as potential for growth in demand from key sectors such as manufacturing. However, the foreign investment that could help expand and modernize the market has not taken place but could be encouraged through digital transformation and other means.

  • Could Digital Transformation help usher in new strategies for better efficiency, security and profitability?
  • What are the opportunities for companies along the value chain - IT providers, operations experts, security companies and the oil & gas companies themselves?
  • What best practices can be taken from other emerging energy markets and applied to the Mexican situation?
