The Digital Age: Tackling the Challenges and Embracing the Opportunity

The life sciences industry has always been incredibly innovative in its R&D and bringing new life-saving and -changing medicines, devices, diagnostic tools and products to market. However, it has often been a late adopter of new communication technologies, platforms, and channels – perhaps understandably, given the highly-regulated life sciences operating environment. In this digital age, with information instantly available with a few keyboard strokes or taps on the latest smartphone or wearable, our world is changing exponentially, and with it, the needs, wants, and demands of patients, carers, healthcare providers, and payers across the globe. Susan Macdonald, Founder and Director at Macdonald Lewis Associates (MLA) guides us to the digital age, by focusing on the challenges and opportunities.
