Blog: 3 Key Pillars to a Strategic Safety Vision in Life Sciences

Safety can generate immense value for life sciences organizations. To transform safety from a reactive cost center to a proactive profit driver, organizations should:

  • Provide safety teams with tools and resources to focus on actionable insights
  • Enable teams to focus on value-adding activities that inform patient safety and bottom-line performance
  • Create conditions for team members to work at the top of their licenses
  • Build unified end-to-end processes
  • Invest in enabling technology stacks
  • Prepare for future growth

To take safety operations to the next level, organizations should keep these key points in mind.

Embracing the Cloud-based platforms in Drug Safety

Leading life sciences firms prioritize cloud-based platforms to reduce costs and streamline global operations. Key points include:

  • The rise of cloud-based, multi-tenant platforms is a strategic pillar for life sciences organizations.
  • Cloud-based platforms reduce total cost of ownership and standardize global operations.
  • The shift to the cloud enables digital transformation from on-premises to cloud-based architectures, removing worry about falling behind on best practices.
  • Cloud-based systems remove silos and disjointed safety operations, enabling teams to reduce costs, and reinvest in value-adding activities.

Investing in Safety Automation

Investing in automation is a strategic priority for leading firms in the life sciences industry. Key points include:

  • Automation drives more efficient operations, unlocks precise insights, and frees up resources for value-adding activities.
  • The artificial intelligence market in drug discovery is projected to grow at a CAGR of 36.1% over the next ten years.
  • Automation has become a critical part of the business strategy for enterprise life sciences organizations.
  • With a strategic approach, automation can provide immense value.

Unlocking Safety Intelligence

The expanding role of data and analytics is a critical strategic pillar in driving better outcomes in safety. Key points include:

  • Data and analytics proactively drive better patient, business, and operational outcomes in safety.
  • Life sciences firms have access to a wealth of data from internal and external sources.
  • Gathering healthcare data across unstructured formats and multiple sources can be challenging and time-consuming.
  • Overcoming data silos, noise, and friction is essential.
  • Firms that seamlessly stitch together and curate data, enabling its flow into actionable intelligence, can transform safety into a strategic value center.


By embracing these key safety pillars, life sciences organizations ultimately gain the power to move safety from an operational function to a strategic center, with the strategic impact only growing as technology continues to evolve.
