During pandemic period, information technology has played an important role which is a new starting point in various fields for the pharmaceutical industry in China. In “IDC Future Scape: Global Healthcare Industry Forecast for 2021 -China's Enlightenment” published by IDC at the end of 2020, it was predicted that by 2023, 65% of patients would receive medical service through digital medical portals. In the meantime, online remote medical service and clinical trials will increase the spending of medical institutions and life science companies on Internet medical technologies by 50%. The new model of integrated medical services will support the application of a variety of new technologies such as medical imaging AI, Clinical decision support system (CDSS), smart wearable devices and big data platform of medical information, building a patient-centered medical and healthcare system.
This brand new “Internet + medicine” model has also posed new challenges to pharmaceutical enterprises in the processes of R&D.Enterprises need to integrate intelligent manufacturing thoroughly in the processes of development and manufacturing to enable the connectivity of network, data and equipment, thereby reducing risks while increasing efficiency. However, the key to improving the acquisition, participation and experience of full-process service is to have the support from an ICT operator that has enormous global network resources and stable network performance, so that an enterprise can stand out from the crowd in areas including frequent data exchange, use of remote device and connectivity among branches.
