"Healthcare Industry Lost in the Digitalization Jungle," November 20, 2019
Digitalization is spreading to more and more areas of the healthcare industry, and revenue expectations are high. However, the latest Digital Health Trend Study published by the global strategy and marketing consultancy Simon-Kucher & Partners shows that digital transformation is progressing slowly, and firms are often unsure which direction to move in. Fifty-nine percent of pharma, medtech, and consumer healthcare companies still lack a fully defined digital strategy. It is also remarkable that such a high number of approaches exist for implementing company-wide digital strategies. Chosen investment areas and methods to define strategies are the aspects that vary most.
A recent study conducted by Simon-Kucher & Partners, a global strategy and marketing consulting firm, revealed that there is still a dichotomy in how consumers approach Black Friday vs. Cyber Monday. Sixty percent of Black Friday shoppers browse through offerings in the hopes that they find the best deals, whatever they may be. Alternatively, 50 percent of Cyber Monday shoppers seem more intent on checking predetermined items off their lists, saying they are focused on purchasing specific products.
