IT and Collaboration: The Driving Force of Healthcare Advancement

Healthcare, pharmaceutical and medical technology organisations all over the world are joining efforts as they strive to overcome the challenges brought on by the global pandemic. To fast track crucial activities, such as the discovery of a COVID-19 vaccine, these organisations are re-architecting their IT and optimising it to increase collaboration and improve patient care. 

Technology plays a vital role in enabling organisations to maximise their global reach, collaborate securely with their business partners, and open up a whole new world of possibilities by interconnecting with a broad ecosystem of cloud providers.

  • How has COVID-19 accelerated collaboration trends in the healthcare sector? 
  • What are the technical and logistical challenges for collaborative research?
  • What steps are organisations taking towards their mitigation? 
  • How has the current scenario impacted IT? Has it sparked or accelerated your digital transformation journey?
