As 2020 draws to a close, Deloitte in the United Kingdom has unveiled some predictions on how patients, healthcare and life science companies and their staff might behave and operate in five years’ time, based on today’s evidence.
Below is a list of sector predictions for the year 2025:
- Advances in AI-enabled robotics, cognitive automation, digitalisation and life-long learning will help task shifting and role-enrichment, changing the who, what, and where of work.
- Advanced AI-enabled technologies will also have accelerated drug discovery and clinical trials improving efficiency and efficacy and reducing costs, enabling companies to reverse the decline in the returns from pharma R&D.
- Predictive prevention models will have led to more precise public health digital interventions – dramatically lowering smoking rates, improving nutrition and reducing loneliness.
Karen Taylor, director, United Kingdom Centre for Health Solutions, said: “This year, inevitably, our predictions have been informed by the unparalleled impact of COVID-19 and how people perceive health risks.
“In response to the pandemic, the pharma industry, academia, biotech and governments initiated scientific ventures funded by governments, multilateral agencies, not-for-profit institutions and the private sector.
The sharing of data has expedited the search for new treatments and vaccines, with regulators quickly entering into discussion aimed at supporting the most promising innovations.”
