As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact patients, healthcare systems, and global economic outlooks, we focus on the key considerations and strategies for pharma companies when the data generation for possible therapies is becoming increasingly complex to analyze. There are several COVID-19 treatment and vaccine databases containing an aggregation of publicly-available information from validated sources detailing treatments and vaccines currently in development.

2020-05-20T07:40:49+01:00Thought Piece|

As COVID-19 continues to disrupt normalcy across the globe, China is responding with innovation in online health delivery and telemedicine. How has China encouraged telemedicine uptake? What are the factors contributing to China’s relatively quick utilization of telemedicine in the face of COVID-19? And what learnings can we gain from taking a closer look? We explore these questions in our latest addition to our COVID-19+Pharma Series.

Launch and COVID-19: Pharma’s Dilemma

COVID-19 is throwing a wrench in years’ worth of launch planning, introducing complications and delays into the regulatory process and severely constricting promotional and educational opportunities for new products. How is the pharmaceutical industry responding to these changes in well-laid plans? How are regulatory bodies responding? We consider the potential impact of the pandemic on launch timing and strategy here.

As the impact of COVID-19 pandemic continues to expand globally, pharmaceutical and biotech players are beginning to feel the disruptive effects of the outbreak. New clinical trials will be significantly delayed as companies continue to face challenges arising from COVID-19, from potential patient quarantines, to site closures, travel limitations or interruptions to the supply chain for new investigational products.

The Future of JAK Inhibitors

2020-01-08T16:48:24+00:00White Paper|

From blockbuster drugs to black box warnings, Janus kinase inhibitors (JAKs) have seen dramatic highs and lows in their journey to market access across the last few years. Yet despite the hurdles, JAKs are facing, pharma’s conviction in their potential to generate a paradigm shift in patient care means R&D activity and interest remains undaunted. Will JAK inhibitors triumph over persisting regulatory roadblocks to offer patients a new treatment option? In this white paper, we investigate the current state of JAKs and explore their likelihood of success in the future.

Digitizing Healthcare

2020-06-22T09:35:30+01:00White Paper|

Healthcare has always had a reputation of being resistant to change, but consumer demand and a rapidly evolving technology-driven world have led the digitization of healthcare to move at a frantic pace. In this white paper we explore the digitization trend currently infiltrating healthcare and delve into the implications of digital health on patients, payers, and pharma itself. We take stock of the current landscape, discuss likely future trends, and explore how strategic intelligence can help answer key questions for the healthcare industry in the face of so much digital innovation.
