Why does the life sciences sector lag behind other industries in digital maturity?

One of the main reasons why the life sciences are not matching other industries in digital maturity is the complex and nuanced nature of the health sector. The industry is – understandably - a heavily regulated industry, which makes it difficult for organizations to implement new technologies and processes. This can create barriers to innovation and slow down the adoption of digital technologies, which are critical for achieving better outcomes in areas such as patient engagement, care management, and population health.

Another reason for the lag in digital maturity in the life sciences is the lack of data standardization and interoperability. The industry generates large amounts of data, but this data is often fragmented and siloed - making it difficult to access and create a data-driven decision-making process effectively. This has limited the ability of companies to use data to drive actionable insights and improve outcomes. 

The life sciences sector has traditionally been slow to adopt new technologies, and this has been exacerbated by the complexity of the industry and the regulatory barriers to innovation. This has made it difficult for companies to keep pace with advances in digital health and data analytics, and has limited their ability to leverage technology to improve outcomes.
