Two years into the pandemic, we consider its impact on the life science sector and how the risk landscape is evolving as the industry builds on the progress it has made.
When the pandemic struck in 2020, Chubb and legal partner Kennedys produced a series of reports exploring the impact it was having on the life science industry through the lenses of clinical trials, medical devices, telehealth, genomics and the supply chain.
Looking back at the past two years, the industry has, by and large, proved successful at managing the most significant risks faced. It has also demonstrated its capabilities during an extraordinary time; producing vaccines at record speed and rapidly delivering solutions – from telehealth to medical devices and genomic surveillance – that have helped us through this difficult period. Now the life science sector is building on that foundation to improve healthcare and preparedness for future pandemics, while continuing to battle COVID-19.
Read “The new normal in life science” report for insights on how those changes played out in the medium term. Which innovations have become part of the new normal and where did things go wrong? From the new strength and capacity that has been built in telehealth and clinical trials, to the lessons that have been learnt for future pandemics on medical devices and supply chains.
