MARKET REPORT: Investors hip to Smith & Nephew as rumours intensify over ... - This is Money | Life-sciences | Scoop.it
Rumours have been rife in recent weeks that S&N could be looking to sell its wound care business for £2.6billion. A bidder (Stryker?) would obviously be keen to pounce before it concludes any sale.
Christopher Rudolf's insight:

M&A activity continues to intensify, as the big bets on the "payer - provider - patient" convergence are placed.

Medtronic, now Stryker.

Cybersecurity Ranks Top of Mind in CSC Global CIO Survey

Cybersecurity Ranks Top of Mind in CSC Global CIO Survey | Life-sciences | Scoop.it

Once again, cybersecurity ranks top of mind for CIOs this year – in initiatives, investment, impact on business and productivity.

Christopher Rudolf's insight:

I was at the FT Live Pharma & Biotech conference this week, which was great. Much talked about BigData and connected devices.

Not much about this topic. If you have concerns about this aspect in Pharma, talk to us at CSC. We are the IDC Leaders for managed Cybersecurity services.

Let it in - Mobility | CSC | Life-sciences | Scoop.it
Out there, a device is an office. Let it in.
Christopher Rudolf's insight:

The Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) movement enables employees to work where and how they choose, and companies of all sizes are working to keep pace with this evolution — protecting corporate data and maximizing the positive impact on accessibility, productivity and workplace culture. Mobility doesn't have to be a hurdle. All you have to do is let it in.

Internet of Things market to reach $3 tn; 30 bn connected devices by 2020: IDC | ET CIO

Internet of Things market to reach $3 tn; 30 bn connected devices by 2020: IDC | ET CIO | Life-sciences | Scoop.it
The IoT ecosystem includes intelligent systems, network equipment, connectivity services and often other types of software, services and security...
Christopher Rudolf's insight:

While $3tn is a large number, it is also set to be distributed across a myriad of providers, devices and services. Standards and security will become imperative, as well as redundancy and self-healing.

 

My Devices Criticality Risk, and assessing and judging how much we can or should rely on particular connected devices for critical elements of our lives will be a challenge. 

 

IoT is an amazing concept but the reality of rolling it out and the resulting impact on our lives is one probably not yet well understood, apart from projections of large revenues.

The Internet of Things and the Connected Person | WIRED

The Internet of Things and the Connected Person | WIRED | Life-sciences | Scoop.it
One of the interesting things about the Internet of Things (IoT): It’s not really about the things. The IoT is a developing technological marvel.

Via Alexander Crépin
Christopher Rudolf's insight:

As I have previously mentioned if we look at the connected person and the data to information to knowledge value chain as well as need to protect that personal IP of yours, we will all need to take a more active role in protecting and learning how and when to share our own data appropriately. If we are responsible for systems and platforms, then we also need to take responsibility for helping manage those issues on behalf of our customers: you. 

 

This article from Wired also talks about the standards for Interoperability and the need to connect in a heterogeneous environment. If ubiquitous connections become the norm for our health and well being, how do we ensure that this is safe and indeed also how do we manage connectivity in differing regulatory environements.

 

At CSC we have a team dedicated to the IOT and we also deal with life-sciences regulatory issues on behalf of our customers with thousands of pharmaceutical products managed in market through our software and services globally. CSC has under management millions of patient records working globally with healthcare providers too.


If you want to know how to bring all of these streams together, who better to talk to than people who do this day in and day out?

Digital Privacy Is “The New Frontier Of Human Rights”

Digital Privacy Is “The New Frontier Of Human Rights” | Life-sciences | Scoop.it
 The impact of mass, digitally-enabled state surveillance upon individuals’ privacy has been described as “the new frontier of human rights” by Member of the European Parliament, Claude Moraes, who was giving an annual lecture on behalf of the...
Christopher Rudolf's insight:

The role of nation states and their stance on privacy, data sharing, anonymisation will be key to rolling out different models of healthcare. The management of spiralling costs in healthcare will cause some real tensions for some jurisdictions.

 

This article talks about mass surveillance, but it is applicable to patient data sharing and the information that could be gleaned by stakeholders in the care continuum.

 

We already mange differing requirements for Regulatory Submissions, Aggregate Spend Reporting (Sunshine act) and soon Serialisation in many different jurisdictions.

 

This article points to a continuing regulatory minefield for companies selling globally where personal-data arbitrage is a key commodity. Managing that complexity will be key to success.

Healthcare and Life Sciences Predictions 2020 | Deloitte UK

Healthcare and Life Sciences Predictions 2020 | Deloitte UK | Life-sciences | Scoop.it
The Deloitte Centre for Health Solutions has revealed a bold vision for the Healthcare and Life Sciences sector in 2020.

Via Celine Sportisse
Christopher Rudolf's insight:

I was at the FT Live Pharma and Biotech conference in London last week, and this report was handed out there.. Some really great insights and thoughts in this report. 

 

It was an interesting conference with much talk of connected devices and BigData. It was interesting that some concerns, such as addressing CyberSecurity, anonymisation and other important issues such as how to tangibly change Corporate behaviours were by and large skipped over.

 

Professor Ian Goldin, Director, Oxford Martin School gave a very interesting address touching on some of these aspects which was really one of the highlights of the two days.

 

Some of these are addressed in this report, but the recent news reports about Regin malware validate the reality of a connected world where we will start to have to look after our own personal Information Value Chains (personal data->knowledge->action) with some responsibility.

In this Quarterly archive article, Tom Peters examines the flaws of the matrix-organization design and explores several more effective approaches to implement no more than one or two essential corporate thrusts at a time. A McKinsey Quarterly article.
Christopher Rudolf's insight:

I actually think that there are some interesting insights here, but quite a lot going on in the narrative. Seems like the theme of managing to keep people comfortable with constant but focused change is the key.

Matrixed or not, change and focus stabilized by cultural underpinning is the key. Rather like society . . .
