Top Pharma Industry Trends to Watch in 2023 and Beyond

Editorial

This week, let’s dive into the exciting world of Pharma, shall we? As we continue to navigate through the pandemic, the pharma sector has been under the scanner like never before.

In 2023, we’re expecting to see some major developments in the industry. However, it’s not all smooth sailing. The sector is facing a range of headwinds, from inflation and talent shortages to increasing competition and patent expiries.

One of the major trends we’re seeing is decentralized trial structures, which will require pharma companies to focus more closely on cybersecurity and protected health information (PHI) while managing costs. Additionally, the world of cancer vaccination is taking centre stage, with personalized medicine and innovative R&D in the spotlight.

But what really caught our attention are the latest medical devices and technologies that are likely to make a big splash this year. From skin patches that manage diseases to emotion AI that can detect your mood, to smart TVs that offer remote care, and even affordable vein scanners that make needle pricks a thing of the past, the future of healthcare is looking mighty impressive.

In this issue of This Week in Consulting, we have covered a lot — the strategies that will help pharma companies navigate this evolving world, the changing financing models to fund research and innovations, the latest breakthroughs in cancer vaccination and more!

 

So, dive right in and enjoy your read. And don’t forget to share your feedback with us.
