When healthcare professionals talk about the benefits of a 360-degree view of the patient — or Patient360 — the discussion often ignores the complexities involved in pulling that off.

Or rather, it is about making it possible for new, modern systems of engagement to easily draw data from existing systems of record.

Boomi’s low-code, native-cloud integration platform allowed Moderna to scale efficiently by integrating systems and automating complex, cross-platform business transactions that included budgeting, vendor payments, and human resources management.

New research from McKinsey & Company, a worldwide management consulting firm, highlights that the pharmaceutical industry lags “dramatically” behind most other industries in digital modernization.

McKinsey assessed the “digital maturity” of more than 200 companies worldwide across 18 common practices spanning four dimensions: strategy, capabilities, organization, and culture.

On a scale of 1-100, pharmaceutical companies averaged a “digital quotient” score of 27, only slightly better than the least digitally progressive industry, the public sector (local, state and national government).
