The pharmaceutical industry is facing a challenging economic landscape that compels companies to reinvent traditional operating models. Gone are the days when a single firm can operate vertically, owning all the assets required for the arduous journey to develop new drugs and medical devices.
Instead, companies are maneuvering to reinvent themselves to develop new therapies virtually. In an industry rife with expiring patents, increasing regulatory pressures and dwindling study populations in domestic markets, pharmaceutical and life sciences firms have adopted more agile methods for clinical trials that bring with them new challenges for secure data communication.
The common denominator in this evolution is collaboration with companies co-developing drugs with clinical resource organizations at an ever-increasing clip and partnering with other companies in the value chain to glean new insights and ideas.
In the "virtual clinical trial," the traditional paper-based process—that makes up approximately 40 percent of annual R&D costs—is replaced with digital communications to lower costs and speed the delivery of approved drugs to consumers. Cognizant provides a wide range of enterprise risk and security services, including a first-of-its-kind secure investigator platform that allows clinical investigators to have one trusted digital identity to use with all partners.
