Companies across the healthcare sector have widely differing priorities and challenges depending on their area of focus, from research and development firms funding wearable devices to pharmaceutical manufacturers or those delivering services, such as doctors’ surgeries and hospitals.

However, certain developments are common to all. Traditional notions of healthcare are being challenged, with companies increasingly looking at different ways of delivering services; ageing populations are stimulating demand for new procedures and drugs; and rapidly developing technology – from robotics to nanotechnology – is bringing challenges and opportunities across the sector.

Those organizations that adapt quickly to these changes will be best placed to take advantage of the huge potential for growth.
