Jaime is an associate director of account management in life sciences at KPMG in the US. She talks about the dynamic changes happening right now in the life sciences sector. She believes that one of the biggest changes happening is the focus on the patient. We are at a time where everybody is having to do a lot more with less. And, you really have to think about how you're going to invest in things, whether it's internally in your company or externally for your customers, you really want to focus on where the highest value is and what is going to bring the most value to your customers.
Jaime has experience from the industry prior to coming into KPMG, and so she has seen both sides. It's an exciting time to be in this industry because there are a lot of opportunities for people to take on new roles and to start creating new roles. She thinks that a lot of life sciences companies are starting to look at new partnerships, perhaps some of the traditional ones and just trying to maximize those partnerships. Also companies are looking outside of the industry and really getting creative with things they can do, whether it's from technology or from patient advocacy and outreach.
