The social nature of today’s constantly connected patients and consumers means life sciences organizations must provide on-demand access to information and support. While scientific advancements have led to miraculous treatments, technological advancements have the potential to facilitate unprecedented innovation. This new wave of innovation is dependent on capturing environmental determinants of health and the delivery of real-time care and collaboration.

The changing landscape of life sciences and pharmaceuticals

To adapt and succeed in this changing landscape, life sciences organizations are responding by digitizing and improving processes across the product lifecycle using a digital transformation platform approach.

The recent Gartner report, Business Drivers of Technology Decisions, provides insight into the key decisions for CIO’s in life sciences, as well as an analysis of business priorities in the industry:

These drivers impact business priorities, and the role of IT in life sciences organizations has expanded as a result. The operating model of the future for life sciences is centered around value to the patient and must happen on a global scale, all while maintaining compliance to regulations.

IT leaders must consider the key trends and align business drivers with shifting priorities by leveraging technology like the Appian Digital Transformation Platform that allows data integration from disparate systems within the enterprise. By automating manual, siloed processes, such a Platform can enable the organization to streamline R&D as well as clinical, regulatory, supply chain and manufacturing operations, and thus speed time-to-market.

Digitization is more than an opportunity for life sciences leaders; it’s also a priority. Many organizations are struggling with developing their digital strategy to enable innovative ways to deliver care in a shifting environment.
