Insights into Telehealth, Health Technology and MedTech

Clients and candidates in our Life Sciences & Healthcare practice are seeing the recent pandemic as a turning point in Telehealth, Health Technology and MedTech. Physicians, consumers and regulators are increasingly using connected or fully-digital technologies, with some describing it as a major revolution. After 20 centuries of medicine in which doctors invariably met patients in person – the same room at the same time – the use of telemedicine is a real paradigm shift.

A successful digital transformation requires the repositioning of IT in the organisation; IT must evolve from a cost centre into an integral part of the value chain. Many asset-heavy companies transform into “technology” companies, where data replaces many of the assets previously listed on the balance sheet, drives customer experience and allows the creation of new business models. As a result, many formerly outsourced or “bought-in” IT functions and solutions are brought in-house. 

In this series, we talk to IT leaders across a range of industries about how the choice between “making it” versus “buying it” has affected IT in their organisations, the interactions with business stakeholders, and the impact on talent acquisition and retention.

Digital Transformation and Leadership Competencies
You only see it when you understand it. 

Lewis Carroll once quipped that if you do not know where you are going, any road will get you there. Similarly, if you cannot define digital, any transformation will take you there.

Like a case of bad acne, “digital” sprouts a plethora of truisms. Too many offerings, channels, messages. Creative destruction and hyper-competition. Old barriers to competition disappear. Uncertainty and unpredictability multiply. The end of sustainable competitive advantage. Almost anything

Insights into the influence of Covid-19 on the current and post-pandemic Life Sciences & Healthcare market

The word “quarantine” is derived from the Italian word quarantena, the 40-day isolation period demanded during the Middle Ages before a ship was permitted to enter port, in order  to protect the port city from disease. Humans are social animals, and as we endure our 40 days of self-isolation and lockdown across the globe, we are starting to feel stressed and to long for some short to mid-term perspectives.
