THE POWER OF DATA SCIENCE IN PHARMACEUTICALS

November 04, 2019 / ABEL ARCHUNDIA-PINEDA

The world population grows by more than 80 million per year, according to a 2017 report by the United Nations. By 2050, there will be 10 billion people on this planet and people over the age of 60 years and above are expected to double. It’s clear that a growing and aging world population needs better and more sustainable solutions for health and nutrition. Data Science has the power to fundamentally transform patient health and the healthcare industry needs to leverage digital technologies for better solutions. Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning help to leverage data so patients can be diagnosed earlier and to gain a thorough and deep understanding of diseases. This is key to tailor treatments to the individual needs of a patient and to identify those patients who will benefit the most. Moreover, data-driven digital solutions help to bring new medicines to patients faster than ever before.
