The life science product development and launch cycle has long made the industry a perfect fit for on-demand talent—with short-term phases of drug development and steps that can be projectized. Industry leaders have traditionally harnessed this powerful resource to address challenges that include complex payer dynamics, regulatory change, pricing pressures, medical breakthroughs, and increased M&A activity.
Today, as companies sprint to innovate and respond to public health challenges, engage and serve patients remotely, and adapt and accelerate clinical trials, independent talent are providing an agile source of skills, allowing life science leaders to keep pace in a fast-changing environment.
This guide explores eight key capabilities in which high-end independent talent are serving life science companies:
- Market Access, Value, and Reimbursement
- Clinical Solutions
- Commercial Excellence
- Digital Health
- Strategy and M&A
- Operations, Supply Chain, and Manufacturing
