Today’s pharmaceutical and medical device companies are facing rising pressure from healthcare communities with patients needing more personalized care, consumers and policy makers pushing to lower healthcare costs, the drive to reduce time and costs to bring new products to market, and complying with increasingly onerous regulations. Meanwhile, the industry is focused on developing more innovative products that improve patient outcomes while decreasing healthcare costs. How does a pharmaceutical or medical device company even begin to try and achieve all these objectives?

Innovating while simultaneously reducing the time and cost of bringing products to market are critical to the financial stability and growth of life science companies. And achieving these goals, without sacrificing quality and patient safety is a prerequisite that is extremely hard to satisfy. Today, in silico (computer-based) methods allow multidisciplinary design teams to perform a large number of simulations to test a variety of designs and therapeutics under various conditions prior to costly and time-consuming physical prototype builds and lab testing that would otherwise not be possible with animal studies and human clinical trials.

Join us for our webinar as we demonstrate the power of modeling and simulation for pharma and medical device companies, and why it’s so important in today’s Life Sciences industry.
