Healthcare and life sciences
The Healthcare market is shaped by Life Sciences companies, Medical devices manufacturers, Healthcare service providers and Payers. Many internal and external drivers impact industry: population habits & pathologies, government policies, regulation, technological innovations…
Traditional players are facing major ongoing disruptions, enabled by technological revolutions in two major areas: Pharma & Biotech R&D enablers, and Healthcare devices & service enablers.
For instance, High-Throughput Screening (HTS) robotics bring speed and scale to testing, thus accelerating the identification of targets and hits and discovery of new biotech drugs, thanks to robotics, data processing, and sensitive detectors.
In the field of Healthcare service enablers, smart payers are disrupting healthcare insurance offers. As governments and insurers are rethinking their cost-control strategy, they are shifting from reimbursing by treatment to outcome reimbursement, are focusing on prevention.
Key technological enablers
Machine Learning brings together all the technologies needed to automatically calibrate a model to make it more reliable. The improvement of computing power and the increase in the amount of usable data allows computers to automatically adjust their predictions and behaviors, and the development of more accurate and efficient predictive and decision-making algorithms.
Sensors & MeMS
Microelectronics has led to fundamental advances in sensors and actuators. More compact sensors (nanotechnology), less expensive, with embedded intelligence, with more autonomy and sometimes self-sufficient in energy, allows more precise control of assets, production lines or the operation of complex systems.
Augmented reality (AR) adds virtual elements (indications, clothing, furniture…) to the real environment. Advances in image recognition and digital modeling not only allow the emergence of new and enhanced customer experiences, but also the assistance of any field operator in real time.
The Cloud brings together all the technologies that allow remote data storage and processing, often on shared solutions. The pooling of material costs and the development of platforms give any company access to flexible, high-performance, secure and cost-effective IT infrastructures and services.
Advances in molecular chemistry, nanotechnology and biotechnology are enabling the emergence of “intelligent” materials, which can be programmable, with shape memory, miniaturized or with better physical properties.
Robotic technologies allows the machine to perform operations that require an interpretation of the problem – where the automaton performs repeated and systematic operations. The multiplication of programmable and interconnected machines makes it possible to drastically expand the field of automation, or even to associate robots and humans with “Cobotics”.
