How EY’s Global Life Sciences Sector can help your business

Life sciences companies — from emerging start-ups to multinational enterprises — face new challenges in a rapidly changing health care ecosystem. Payers and regulators are increasing scrutiny and accelerating the transition to value and outcomes. Big data and patient-empowering technologies are driving new approaches and enabling transparency and consumerism. Players from other sectors are entering health care, making collaborations increasingly complex. These trends challenge every aspect of the life sciences business model, from R&D to marketing.

Our Global Life Sciences Sector brings together a worldwide network — more than 7,000 sector-focused assurance, tax, transaction and advisory professionals — to anticipate trends, identify their implications and develop points of view on responding to critical issues. We can help you navigate your way forward and achieve success in the new ecosystem.
