Agile -- the approach that a larger part of the world is inching towards.
Renewables -- the subject of urgent implementation for decades.
Slowly, but eventually, we have come to a point of fascinating acceptance to both of these revolutionary factors that can help us take a leap of growth from the current state of mayhem that we are in.
Before we get down to the nitty-gritty of how these two futuristic innovations are revolutionizing the harmonious sectors in our agenda today, let’s first clear the fact what agile and renewables really are.
Unlike what most progressive office spaces believe an agile implementation to be, it does not just refer to being fast and flexible in your job. That’s true, according to Bain and Co.’s data, out of the 80% employees in these sectors realize the importance of being agile but only about 30% truly understand the meaning of this approach.
To be clear, agile is an operational approach, that when implemented in commercial or non-commercial operations, can boost productivity, scalability, as well as the profitability of the process as well as the result. It is a reiterative methodology that goes by the principle of elimination of what’s unnecessary and streamlining the potential of what’s beneficial.
As far as renewables are concerned, they don’t just involve installing a couple of technologies that replace our conventional sources of energy. Disruption by renewables is basically how the entire work ecosystem can be designed towards the best utilization of renewables, and how this can lead to an unparalleled succes rate.
Now that we are clear about the premise of this article, let’s move on to how exactly innovations in these areas can boost the healthcare and pharma sectors.
Agile and Renewables: Scope Of The Combination
Agile and Renewables are two completely different factors that in their unique interpretations work their way through an organizational ecosystem’s improved productivity and efficiency. The combination of the two, commonly known as Agile Energy Systems, however, has proved to be groundbreaking.
We are aware of our transcendence into Industry 4.0 which is effectively governed by digitization. Joining hands with this digitization is the green revolution, which gives rise to a system where you see renewable sources of energy and natural resources coming together in a systematic agile approach. This is nothing but two conventional concepts coming together to foster unconventional growth. In this case, let’s dig through how these systems have been able to attain an Industrial outgrowth.
Healthcare, Pharma, And Changing Patient Needs
We would all agree that 2020 has been the turning point in healthcare all across the globe. The sector is playing catch up with the ever-changing needs of the customers, the manifoldly boosted need for precaution, and the adaption towards minimizing contact while maximizing hygienic disposal have been giving healthcare dispensers a hard time. As customers become aware of advanced technologies like IoT and AI helping in patient care and relative remote monitoring, the demand has evolved into a healthcare prerequisite.
Needless to point out, the soaring failure rates of pharmaceuticals or medicinal aid bein toxic to some thereby triggering underlying unrelated illnesses have been a matter of concern in the pharma sector. With the global pharma forces combined to find an effective treatment, vaccine, or cure to Covid-19 and the lack of a solution even after months of destruction has further grabbed eyeballs on our adaptation in this sector.
Combined with all these needs is the fact that healthcare and pharma are two of the most environmentally toxic industries that generate and contribute to large sections of bio-medical and chemical waste with no solutions to annihilate the same. The problem of excess energy consumption and wastage remains altogether a different story.
Agile Energy System: The Solution
So many problems plaguing the very industry that is responsible for our health may seem baffling. But the good news is, the future is bright given the increased awareness and efforts towards more and more healthcare systems adopting an agile energy system.
The integration of an agile approach would be able to better find solutions to customer problems, help through renewable product innovation, advance testing and its accuracy using digital prototypes, and even boost customer follow-up engagements to make the entire procedure ultimately profitable for healthcare and pharma businesses. Renewables will become the foundation of medical energy systems and newer technologies including will be adopted that streamline and digitize energy operations.
To top it off, an agile approach will also take care of the budget which means medical and drug cost management will be integrated into the comprehensive plan.
An excellent example of this integration to generate invaluable outcomes would be Iora Health that realized the scope of agile and appointed a dedicated team of scrum professionals to benefit from its strategy of excellence early on. The team has been successful in developing technologies and operational strategies that revolve around the patient.
Furthermore, a strictly renewable approach has been the guiding light for the team to implement this agile model. The focus is to work with technologies that enable care, and these comprise of digital innovations enhancing patient care as well as renewable innovations enveloping environmental care. And hence, the futuristic results
Future Of Healthcare and Pharma Innovation
With the right integration of agile, it is safe to assume that in the very near future healthcare and pharma will advance towards collective progressive growth. But what will it look like?
Considering that the agile approach will continue to intertwine digital technologies, personalized pharma would be the next step. This innovation is widely expected to tackle the problem of unpredictable reactions that an individual’s body can undergo in response to generic medicine. Alongside, the utilization of stored data about patient’s medical history to mediate real-time healthcare, customize treatment costs, personalize insurance policies, and other customer-centric initiatives can also be expected.
The goal of creating a mutually and all-inclusively beneficial healthcare system can therefore become quite possible to achieve.
