Life sciences companies need to derive value from volume

The plethora of newfound data made available by modern technologies and generated directly by consumers can give manufacturers valuable insight into how patients are using their products. This information can help pharmaceutical and life sciences companies give payers the real-world evidence they demand to prove the efficacy and value of new drugs and devices. The challenge lies not in collecting this data, but in harnessing, parsing, and analyzing it to create competitive advantage. Insights and intelligence derived from fast-moving data sets can help inform strategy decisions, spur innovation, inspire new products, enhance customer relationships, and bolster operations.
