Challenges facing the life sciences sector
The pace of change in the life sciences industry has never been greater. Companies are under pressure to keep up with significant levels of market activity including M&A, technological advancement coupled with enhanced customer expectations, and heightened disruption from non-traditional competitors. At Gate One, we have a strong track record of patient-centric transformations in the life sciences sector, helping organisations to overcome these challenges.
For many organisations, M&A is a means of quickly gaining a competitive edge. The right opportunity enables life sciences businesses to accelerate research and development (R&D), while restocking their shrinking product pipelines. However, merging, acquiring, separating or divesting all come with their own unique challenges. Anticipating and resolving these quickly is critical to preserving shareholder value.
To stay ahead of the curve and satisfy customer expectations, organisations need to be able to deliver tailored therapies, support solutions and customer engagement (patient and HCP) – all of which are heavily dependent on optimising data and a wide variety of digital and technology solutions. The regulatory backdrop presents further complexity that must be factored into both design and delivery.
Disruption from non-traditional competitors is increasing the size and complexity of the industry. This is driving organisations to shift from a more focused portfolio approach to patient and customer-centric innovation, which brings with it the need to design, implement and optimise new working practices.
