Science isn’t just in petri dishes anymore. Novel technology is increasingly involved. Discoveries are being made and tested in the cloud. Artificial intelligence and machine learning algorithms are digesting data lakes and helping drive new discoveries, speed development and provide smarter care.
Scientific innovation capabilities drive the biopharma sector both to develop treatments and manage global health. But science has changed—so how we innovate must also change. The way we measure benefits for patients and populations is going to shape the future.
In 2019, Accenture identified and defined New Science: a dynamic combination of the best in science and health technology that is driving more growth than originally predicted.
