Product Description

Companies throughout the industry are experimenting with new models designed to tackle the pipeline productivity challenge.

Pharmaceutical research and development is facing many pressures, from decreased productivity to the impact of the economy to changing technology to an increasingly global environment.
Companies are looking for solutions, but industry experts say the answer may lie in the R&D business model. A report by PricewaterhouseCoopers released earlier this year predicts that by 2020 the old business model — where companies employ a strategy of placing big bets on a few molecules — will no longer meet the market’s needs.
The industry, PricewaterhouseCoopers’ experts say, is undergoing a period of disruptive innovation.
Companies will need to join forces with a wide range of organizations, from academic institutions, hospitals, and technology providers to companies offering compliance programs, nutritional advice, stress management, physiotherapy, exercise facilities, health screening, and other such services.
