Pharma’s Role in the Digital Age
It’s not just technology that’s changing, it’s the infrastructure that surrounds it. The doctor’s visit, the drugstore prescription, and the drugs themselves will be very different and highly personalized. Now that we’ve looked at the tech it’s time to look at the institutions they’ll disrupt.
