The Impact of Digital Health on the Pharmaceutical Industry

Written by Thilo Kaltenbach, a partner in Arthur D. Little’s Healthcare practice, and drawing from the consultancy’s recent study, “Principles of Winning Digital Strategies”, this article reveals a lack of active digital health strategies among pharma companies, even though the industry as a whole is building its future around these technological developments. However, most companies also believe it will be crucial to have such strategies in place by 2020, when digitization is predicted to have revolutionized the healthcare industry. The article explains how a strong digital solution must address the whole customer journey and focus on specific stakeholders within the healthcare system, including patients, physicians, payers, and healthcare providers and suppliers. For example, physicians need to be addressed because they influence patients, the end receivers of the offerings. The article also discusses qualities that a winning digital solution needs to have, such as strong value add, connectivity, and regional applicability.

Mobile IT-strategies to fight imprudence

Smartphones and tablets ease everyday work. But such mobile technologies open up gateways for offenders to intrude into corporate IT. Yet clear rules for mobile communications for all employees, protective software and sophisticated encryption can stop invaders. Of course, all security upgrades imply investments. “But this is only a small fraction of the cost for devices and connections – and definitely a rewarding investment considering the importance of corporate data,” says Claus Heerlein from Arthur D. Little.

Urban Networks under Pressure

This article is based on Arthur D. Little’s recent study, “Future of Urban Mobility 2.0”, and discusses the growing need around the world for improvements in transportation.

The article highlights the differences between the cities that are best and least equipped to handle the increased demand on public transportation. It also discusses several steps that transportation organizations are recommended to take to improve their networks, such as establishing a sustainable mobility core, rethinking the entire system, and approaching transportation service with the mindset of delivering solutions rather than just delivering transportation.

Mobile telephony will soon be one data service

Voice-over-LTE (VoLTE) transforms mobile calls into data packages and thereby reduces the network capacity necessary for the call. Further advantages of LTE technology include lower operating costs and new economies of scale. “On top of that, VoLTE can free up mobile telephony capacities formerly occupied by GSM or 3G for data services with higher margins,” says Christian Niegel from Arthur D. Little. By 2019, Niegel expects 20-30% of all mobile customers in Europe to use VoLTE.

Hong Kong further expands its infrastructure

The rocky island at the southern Chinese coast invests heavily in its infrastructure. But the city is forced to invest in public transportation because there is no other way to efficiently get people to work. Streets in Hong Kong have always been built too narrow, not to mention parking spaces are a curiosity down there. Due to the city`s constraints on space, it has always counted on unconventional modes of public transport. No wonder global management consultancy Arthur D. Little recently awarded Hong Kong the first rank in its Urban Mobility Index.

Corporate On the history of management consulting

In the 1960s they were still a rather odd way of doing business, but consulting services nowadays are a global standard.

Since then, these firms have helped companies with new business models, ideas and technologies to survive and extend their footprints.

Germany`s threatened flagship industries

High costs, new competitors, strategic omissions, governmental interference endanger Germany`s welfare. Cost pressure forces companies like Airbus to cut jobs and optimize sourcing. This in turn squeezes aerospace suppliers. According to a recent Arthur D. Little publication, the suppliers are still profitable as they can continue to sell either to Boeing or to Airbus – but these options are short-term.
