Global life sciences R&D spend is drastically outpacing revenue growth. Trial protocol complexity is spiking across endpoint requirements, eligibility criteria, and geographic scale. Revenue opportunity is tightening as generics capture nearly 80% of the prescription market, and teams are increasingly siloed — despite being more interdependent than ever before.

The road is narrow. But HighPoint’s research and development team shows life sciences clients the way forward.

Based on our extensive experience, we have formulated new best practices that span clinical development and regulatory information management. We know how to make processes, people, data, and technology work more efficiently, helping our clients to control costs and get products faster to market so they can focus on meeting their strategic goals.
