Pharma companies need to pivot faster due to increased pressures from new entries into the drug discovery space, new supply chain models, while maintaining compliant to regulatory requirements. Digital is the backbone of modernizing the pharmaceutical regulation.
Hospitals must embrace the new digital workplace and ERP so they can reduce cost and risks while increasing value provided to patients and ensuring compliance.
