The information systems and software applications that support the Healthcare Services and product industries exist within a heavily regulated environment. They must be compliant with industry standards that contribute to patient safety and protection of sensitive data.

In many areas of research within Life Sciences and Healthcare it has been the rapid advances in software and analytical techniques themselves that have enabled the development of new products and service delivery systems. As the industry works to implement new and innovative technologies, they are challenged by the ever-increasing competition for better products and services at the patient level, higher development costs and a short supply of experienced IT professionals, engineers and scientists at all levels.
