In the latest episode of InnoStars Talks, we dive deep into the cutting-edge world of healthcare innovation with Maurizio Ferrari, Chief Medical Officer at SYNLAB Italy. As a global leader in diagnostics, SYNLAB operates in 33 countries, employing over 27,000 people and performing more than 600 million tests annually. Their unwavering commitment to innovation and actionable diagnostics is transforming the global healthcare landscape.

“Innovation in this century is mandatory for any type of activity. If you aren’t able to innovate, you lose something. Losing means a loss for the patient,” Ferrari passionately explains. This sentiment underscores SYNLAB’s relentless pursuit of advancements that ensure better patient outcomes.

Ferrari emphasizes the critical role of AI in healthcare, advocating for its proper use to extract meaningful information and deliver clear, actionable insights to patients. He also highlights the dual benefits of sustainability, which enhances business operations while improving patient care.
A notable highlight is SYNLAB’s partnership with EIT Health.

This revolutionary diagnostic tool exemplifies the profound impact of innovative partnerships in healthcare.
