Our approach

Our approach

Strategy plus execution and realization

Our Life Sciences practice consists of healthcare and biotech professionals intimately familiar with the most pressing challenges in the field, including:

  • An inability to fully leverage data to produce actionable insights.
  • Outdated approaches to R&D and manufacturing.
  • A lack of collaboration across business units.
  • Poor digital engagement of clinicians and patients.

WWT approaches these challenges in a unique way. Not only are we experts at innovation, strategy and solution development, we're the rare partner who also excels at implementation and execution. Our life science experts are backed by engineering and architectural teams spanning nearly every technology domain. Wherever you are in your journey, we can help you leverage technology to achieve actionable insights that move your business forward.

How we help

How we help

Research Optimization

Life science companies require innovative research capabilities to successfully navigate the increasingly complex healthcare landscape. WWT enables the acceleration of early-, late- and post-indication research with next-generation augmented intelligence. To date, we've deployed some of the world’s largest NLP research environments and supercomputers, several of which are purposed for genomic research.

Weaving our industry-leading data strategy solutions with our ontology-free, novel heuristics and machine learning technologies, we can measurably improve the speed, cost and success rate of drug development. We also empower scientists and researchers to focus on work that requires specialized human judgement and expertise by automating, expediting and virtualizing research.

Lab of the Future

We help life science companies around the world adapt to today's rapidly changing ecosystems. Our lab of the future is built on a next-generation digital IoT platform that enables your scientists to streamline workflows and unlock new value from experiments.

Starting with the ingestion of real-time data from intelligent instruments and smart cameras, then leveraging advanced technologies like computer vision, we can completely transform laboratory workflows. Our lab of the future approach enables data-driven, automated action through the application of strategic business rules and analytics. By accessing more complete data sets with improved contextualization, you'll be able to generate richer scientific insights faster.

Data Strategy

As technology continues to disrupt healthcare, life science companies must modernize their approach to remain successful. But properly aligning technology with business initiatives requires a transformation in data strategy. As more companies compete to deliver value to patients, reliance on antiquated approaches to data storage and access are simply not sustainable.

Whether it's cloud or hybrid cloud migration, or the aggregation and normalization of data from proprietary and publicly available knowledge sources, WWT's clients are rapidly modernizing their data strategies. Determining your level of data maturity is the first step in shaping a winning data and analytics solution. The consultative, data science and technical expertise that underpins our outcomes-driven approach is designed to create near-term value while accelerating actionable insights for long-term success.

Digital Experience

Digital acceleration is spreading across healthcare and life science industries. Virtual sales enablement, telehealth, provider portals, customer and patient engagement apps, and virtual clinical trials all represent opportunities for life science companies to advance their digital footprint.

WWT enables and accelerates business outcomes by demonstrating, developing, designing, building and deploying integrated architectural solutions and superior digital experiences. We can integrate existing technology investments, like CRMs and marketing software, with digital solutions like video collaboration platforms, AI-powered chatbots and advanced analytics solutions. By creating seamless digital solutions for customer-facing, corporate and clinical workflows, we can help you drive efficiencies while optimizing the user experience for your employees, providers, patients and partners.
