2018 Global life sciences and healthcare outlook  

What trends will impact the patient’s journey of care in the year ahead?

Overview

With increasing industrialization, life sciences and health care companies are adopting emerging technologies to develop ‘smart health care’ and improve the overall patient experience. These increased capabilities, while leading to growth, are also leading to constant evolution of regulatory policies, and other uncertainties in the marketplace. The 2018 outlooks explore factors that are likely to shape the life sciences and health care industry in the coming year and beyond.

In 2018, life sciences companies will need to embrace change and uncertainty. To adapt to the Fourth Industrial Revolution, they will need to build forward-looking organisations and establish new collaborative ways of working. The life sciences sector both globally and in Ireland is experiencing quite a bit of disruption and it’s creating transformative opportunities that should be embraced in the near term. The organisations that effectively manage this type of change will be better prepared to improve profitability and stay competitive.
