The impacts of ICTs on the pharmaceutical and healthcare industries

This study examines the impacts of ICTs on the pharmaceutical and healthcare industries. It includes a brief exploration of ICT developments, a discussion of their impacts on pharmaceuticals and healthcare, and an assessment of the implications for healthcare costs, health outcomes and pharmaceutical industry
development. The overall 'agenda' of the research program, of which this project is a part, is to explore
ways to square the circle on healthcare costs, pharmaceutical industry development, and better healthcare outcomes. Hence a principal aim of this project is to ascertain the extent to which ICTs may contribute to squaring that circle, by enabling the containment or reduction of healthcare costs, enabling the rejuvenation of pharmaceutical industry development, and/or enabling better healthcare outcomes.
