Life Sciences and Healthcare is an industry characterized by mergers and acquisitions, pricing pressure, growing costs for research and development and restrictions on the registration of new active ingredients and products.
This has become a new discipline, covering the entire life cycle of a drug and comprises questions of pricing and reimbursement already in the early stages. Particularly, it requires information and relationship management of a new dimension under the involvement of broad stakeholder groups.
Pressure on Prices
A streamlining of structures in marketing and sales is present within the industry. Simultaneously, alternative distribution channels and means of communication are gaining importance. With online marketing and online sales (when possible) replacing conventional tools, the Social Media megatrend has found its way (off the ethical range) into the Life Sciences industry.
Technological progress within the clinical sector, and any innovative therapies that might result from it, are constrained by limited financial resources. Privately owned clinic chains are growing through acquisitions and much like in various German regions, a lack of physicians is characteristic of everyday clinical life. In order to meet its specific needs, two German consultants with in-depth knowledge of the area “Hospital” are specialised in the search and selection of executives and expert staff in the medical field.
