LONDON, Oct. 27, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Arthur D. Little (ADL) has launched a report on current and future transformation in healthcare, and the effect these far-reaching changes will have on the life sciences and insurance sectors. To asssess that from more than one perspective, ADL and Munich Re, a leading provider of reinsurance, primary insurance and insurance-related risk solutions, have pooled their expertise and recommendations.
The combination of aging populations, changing urban and work environments, technical innovations in data processing and analysis, and current advances in diagnosing and treating diseases will not only dramatically transform healthcare but also our way of living. Healthcare systems and wider society must therefore prepare for these innovations to ensure preparedness and greater resilience.

Consequently, the report sets out how everyone within the ecosystem needs to collaborate around a common goal – bringing innovations to patients faster and pushing the boundaries of insurability.
Describing the impacts of transformation and providing insights, imperatives and key takeaways for both the insurance and life sciences industries, the report focuses on opportunities in five key areas of healthcare:
- Digital Health
- Advanced therapeutics & new paradigms in treatments
- Power of genes & omics
