Life Sciences leaders are transforming their business models – breaking down silos, reducing turnaround times and putting consumers at the heart of their operations. Backed by interconnected platform ecosystems, these new business models will digitally transform your entire value chain, so it is future-ready.

Traditional mass production is giving way to a distributed footprint powered by a network of micro-supply chains – imagine a world where hyper-personalised products can be produced on demand or on site at clinics. 

What does Life Sciences supply chain transformation look like?

Person focused products and services

A new era of hyper-personalised offerings including precision treatments based on an individual’s cells or genes. To get there, manufacturers will need to tackle the challenges of regulatory burden, operational complexity, scalability and high COGS.

Platform-enabled business models

Digital platform ecosystems underpin the consumerisation of healthcare and the rise of Me-Commerce. Giving patients easy and equitable access to products and services, these interconnected platforms will facilitate exchanges along the end-to-end healthcare value chain.

Digitally-enabled operating models

Leaders will move toward a smarter and faster operating model, leveraging the value of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning (AI/ML). To mitigate workforce pressures, improve product utilisation and enhance speed to market, they’ll evolve their operations to be highly automated, remote and modular.

Brand-powered value propositions

Future Life Sciences supply chains will shift from a traditional cost centre to a brand influencer. By integrating data security, ensuring transparent privacy policies and providing traceability of products in line with ESG goals – Life Sciences can gain a competitive edge and win the hearts and minds of consumers.
