Advancing innovation, increasing access, and improving outcomes
The development and global distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine in record time are historic accomplishments that demonstrate the contributions the healthcare and life sciences sector makes to society and the global economy. However, as the industry moves beyond the pandemic, healthcare leaders must grapple with a number of challenges. New entrants are redefining the healthcare ecosystem; demand for cost-effective healthcare and innovative treatments continues to grow; shifts in public policy are proliferating; and the risks of litigation and political scrutiny remain constant.
