Pharma & Medtech

New business models required
Changing customer requirements and behaviors, innovative technologies and increasing regulatory requirements require new business models that enable pharmaceutical and medtech companies to unlock the full potential of digitization and respond quickly to changing market requirements. Agility, scalability and lean, flexible structures are important prerequisites for the targeted implementation of digital innovations and for successfully holding one's own in a volatile and competitive market.

Product and production safety thanks to compliance and ICT deployment

The tension between innovation capability and regulatory requirements presents the pharmaceutical and medtech industry with major challenges in terms of technologies and processes. Conventional IT tools and organizational forms are no longer sufficient to meet all requirements. Rather, this requires both industry-specific information technologies and innovative and integrated solutions that guarantee a high degree of security. Digital business models and focused innovation management pave the way for pharmaceutical and medical companies to engage more intensively and directly with patients and open up new, forward-looking business areas and platforms.


The new European Medical Device Regulation (MDR) is a topic that is currently occupying every medtech company. In order to meet the complex requirements of MDR, affected companies will have to be able to track the life cycle of their products along the entire supply chain. In addition to MDR-compliant processes for risk management, this also requires uncompromising quality assurance, which can only be achieved through optimized supplier management and close cooperation with distributors.
