Sabrina Tay Partner and Deputy Industry Lead
 
 

Longer life expectancies, together with ageing populations in Singapore and major cities across Asia, provide healthcare and pharmaceutical companies with a driving force for growth and expansion. The current pursuit of healthier lifestyles is also fuelling an increased appetite for healthcare products and services, creating new streams of revenue for healthcare and pharmaceutical businesses.
 
However, the rapid development and evolution of the industry also mean that new challenges present themselves under the least expected circumstances.

 
Top Challenges Faced by Healthcare and Pharmaceutical Companies

  • Shortage of skilled workforce
  • Escalating salaries
  • Rising operating costs
  • Pressure on pharmaceutical prices
  • Tightening regulatory environment
  • Patent expirations on leading products
  • Development of new drugs
  • Access to research funding 

 

Dealing with Unique Challenges

Today’s healthcare and pharmaceutical businesses often find themselves knee-deep in administrative and routine work that arise from the need to deal with these challenges, draining valuable time and manpower. The increasingly complex legal and regulatory frameworks as well as an ever-changing marketplace also leave businesses lost and often without the required in-house expertise to react with sufficient speed.

  • Medical technology businesses
  • Primary, secondary and tertiary healthcare service providers
