The pharmaceutical industry is under increasing pressure to deliver and communicate value to regulators, healthcare providers and patients. In addition, companies struggle with managing the variability caused by product lifecycles, reactive governments, and increasing consumer influence on healthcare policy. Rising development costs, increased competition, and intensified pricing pressure mean that pharmaceutical companies must work harder to maintain robust pipelines, improve internal efficiency, and secure market access.
