Among the most constrained in terms of safety and regulations, the Health sector is marked by an unprecedented health crisis which has further increased the pressure.
Actors Impacted By:
- Changes in health policy: gradual reduction in reimbursement rates, additional stocks,
- The emergence of new, more agile and digital players (Start up – biotechnology, etc.),
- Increasingly strong regulations with specificities per country and the need to invest heavily to comply,
- A transformation of professions with the arrival of digital and AI / Machine learning which are transforming the daily lives of teams (operations, Supply Chain, AI, clinical trials, traceability, etc.),
- Strong organizational and performance issues related to a very active sector: change of strategy, build up, carve out, business combination, active investment fund, etc.
A Sector Where Each Player Has Their Own Constraints:
- Medical devices: a constant search for technological leaps and innovation,
- Pharmaceutical industry: strong pressure linked to generics, an explosion in costs, particularly in R&D, control of CDMOs in terms of sometimes complicated QCD, political pressure on the subject of strategic reindustrialisation,
- Hospitals / clinics: a sector heavily used by economic pressure but also the demands of the patient,
- Home care: strong development, particularly due to the obligation to go on an outpatient basis for a large number of treatments, requiring an increase in home care.
Agility is at the heart of the challenges for the entire healthcare industry.
