NEW YORK; June 20, 2018 – Accenture is the recipient of the 2018 Frost & Sullivan North American Market Leadership Award for real-world evidence (RWE) enterprise solutions.
This is the first time Accenture has secured the market leadership award. It is presented each year to a company that has demonstrated significant growth in its industry, has identified emerging trends before they became the standard in the marketplace, and has created advanced technologies that will catalyze and transform the industry.
Piyush Bansal, senior industry analyst, F&S said, “Accenture has been at the forefront of developing data integration, population health analytics, predictive health analytics, and patient insight platforms. Its comprehensive end-to-end RWE solutions enable pharmaceutical companies to create new business models based on real world data outcomes. Accenture clearly differentiates itself by offering specific functions such as its proprietary database, gathering patient data and generating insights, identifying biomarkers for drug discovery, and providing predictive intelligence for drug discovery and trials.”
“Real-world data and evidence is one of the most exciting parts of life sciences today and is accelerating with broader application of artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, and cognitive computing tools, said Jeff Elton, Ph.D., managing director in Accenture Life Sciences. “We are privileged to be guiding and collaborating with our clients on the adoption of technologies that drive better-informed care decisions, improved patient outcomes, and higher overall value for the health system. RWE and advanced technologies are catalyzing new fields such as cloud-based digital pathology, AI-enhanced medical image interpretation, and applied genomic solutions for research and clinical treatment selection. This strong endorsement of our capabilities validates the breadth and depth of our RWE experience.”
The report states: “Accenture is a well-known brand in life science IT and analytics solutions, and is widely recognized for its cutting-edge technology and functional expertise. Accenture has worked with nearly all of the top 10 global pharmaceutical companies and several leading biotechnology companies to support their RWE needs, and stays focused on providing innovative and reliable business-focused solutions. The company continually gathers insights about clients’ existing and future business requirements to update its solutions and remain ahead of other competitors in the enterprise RWE solutions market.”
