The Pharmaceutical and Healthcare industries are facing an increasingly challenging climate across the globe, as providers seek greater value for money and the demand for innovative medicines and treatments increases exponentially. In order to meet these demands, it is essential for those who manufacture pharmaceuticals and healthcare related products to maximise their efficiency whilst remaining ahead of the curve, as the use of disruptive technology becomes more mainstream.
During this wave of disruption, it is paramount that organisations can attract the best talent in order to remain competitive. In the context of artificial intelligence, revenues from AI platforms and cognitive computing solely within the healthcare space are expected to grow over 40% year on year through to 2025, a figure which showcases just how important it is for organisations to have the necessary SMEs to capture some of this value.
