Notes to Editors
How EY's Global Life Sciences Center can help your business
Life sciences companies — from emerging to multinational — are facing challenging times as access to health care takes on new importance. Stakeholder expectations are shifting, the costs and risks of product development are increasing, alternative business models are manifesting, and collaborations are becoming more complex. At the same time, players from other sectors are entering the field, contributing to a new ecosystem for delivering health care. New measures of success are also emerging as the sector begins to focus on improving a patient's "health outcome," and not just on units of a product sold. Our Global Life Sciences Center brings together a worldwide network of more than 7,000 sector-focused assurance, tax, transaction and advisory professionals to anticipate trends, identify implications and develop points of view on how to respond to the critical sector issues. We can help you navigate your way forward and achieve success in the new health ecosystem.
