Life Sciences and Healthcare
Today’s pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies bring products to market in an environment of unprecedented challenge and complexity. They must continue to research new markets and innovate as an aging population demands a steady flow of breakthrough drugs, devices, and technologies. At the same time, life sciences companies need to manage individual product life cycles – not to mention their own operational efficiency – against a backdrop of diverse challenges, such as: ever-increasing regulatory oversight; evolving intellectual property concerns; rigorous clinical development; escalating marketing costs; and heightened merger and acquisition activity, to name a few.
The picture is no less challenging for healthcare service providers, who must navigate a constantly-shifting terrain of mounting costs, evolving privacy regulations, and changing reimbursement policies. The one constant is government regulation, which only compounds the already complex nature of the healthcare services business environment.
Now, more than ever, life sciences and healthcare services companies need leaders with the right blend of domain expertise and business acumen to deliver life-saving products and services to consumers, while building corporate value in the face of tremendous hurdles.
