Digital healthcare is taking strong footing as a complementary element of healthcare services, this has shown to dramatically improve clinical and patient outcomes. More so in recent times, telehealth platforms have “virtually” transformed the way healthcare is delivered to consumers. And they have been growing at a tremendous pace. Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, the public interest has skyrocketed with some parts of the US witnessing a 10-fold increase in virtual engagements. McKinsey is particularly bullish about the telehealth sector and has pegged its value at a whopping USD 250 billion industry post-COVID-19. Read the blog for more.


Intelligent Automation: Redefining value across the Life Sciences enterprise
Aniruddha Saladi - Pursuit Manager, Life Sciences & Healthcare | January 22, 2021

Intelligent Automation (I.A.) is the driver of the new frontier of transformation for the digital savvy enterprise. It enables Intelligent Business Process Automation and Management, as compared to the previous IT process automation, which offered value generation from standalone processes alone, instead of improved process efficiency and quality across the enterprise, as promised by I.A.

In Life Sciences, this represents an opportunity to embrace a technology that promises better time to market, reduced cost, improved process compliance and a more immersive customer experience.

Intelligent Automation draws from the outputs of the following:

  1. Business Process Management Systems cater to the functional layers in an organization and make the collaboration between people, system, and data efficient via automation of complex processes to minimize human intervention. An example of this is digital health solution platforms, which offer seamless end-to-end patient management capabilities
  2. Robotic Process Automation automates repetitive tasks, reducing human intervention in computer applications. This is the current frontrunner of Automation implementation in the industry, through its ease of implementation and availability of established tools. Examples of RPA are platforms which ensure automated pharmacovigilance compliance by tracking, adverse event reporting, and safety signaling
  3. Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning try to‘Emulate human intelligence in machines, thereby teaching them to learn and improve, delivering continuous improvement’. Tools which enable study of molecules’ ADMET (Absorption, Distribution, Metabolism & Excretion) properties for drug research via imaging and simulation analysis are a prime example of A.I. & M.L. powered value
  4. Integrated Ecosystems aim to achieve seamless connectivity of the day to day systems across platforms and devices to improve user experience. Integrated Business Ecosystems are realized by the collaborative functioning of other business systems and spans other enablers of Intelligent Automation as well. The most noteworthy example of this would be Faster, Intelligent Clinical Trials, which reduce the drugs’ time to market by leveraging technologies like Internet of Things, Robotic Business Management, and Integrated data management

Can ubiquitous access to healthcare data help reduce the surging healthcare cost in the US?
Shantanu Baruah - Senior Vice President | January 18, 2021

Over the last three centuries, the longevity of human life has made some significant strides. The average life of a human in the 1600s was about 40 years. Compared to this, today’s life expectancy stands at a staggering 75+ years. The advent of medicines, the advancement of surgical interventions, and the improvement of quality of life are major contributors to human longevity. Though these statistics are heartening to know, ubiquitous access to care still remains questionable. Year-on-year, the cost of care is increasing exponentially, making healthcare service a topic of debate at government and political battlegrounds.
