Here I am providing a glimpse of innovations within pharmaceutical companies in the field of digital health.

Medicine Delivery by Drones:

Drones or UAV (Unmanned Arial Vehicle) hovers 20 feet above the ground. It is a brand new technology that will continue to grow. These are affordable and easier to use. They are used for making smaller deliveries in very less time and are safer means for transportation. This concept of transferring drugs from one place to another place is introduced by Flirtey and it is having high demand in the market. One of the most advantageous features of drone is its eco-friendly nature.

3D Printing:

This technology is used to provide safe and effective medication to individuals. The size, appearance and rate of delivery of a drug can be designed to meet the demands of an individual. Spritam is the first 3D printed drug approved by FDA (US Food and Drug Administration). This drug being manufactured by Aprecia Pharmaceuticals claims that it makes easy oral medication through 3-D printing process. This technology is running in many areas of the world. This allows orthopaedic surgeons to print artificial bone and skull implants for people with head trauma.

Barcode Identification:

Barcode technology in healthcare uses optical machine readable representation of data in a hospital. This technology helps preventing medical errors by making accurate and reliable information readily available. With the help of this information the drug identification, medication management, specimen collection and any other patient care activity can be easily tracked. This is suitable for those tasks in which a human being is stationary and objects are moving. This barcode identification is used by EP systems that improve the completeness of the medication history.

mHealth apps:


These applications come with a plenty of features. Such apps provide more reliable and authentic results when people share their maximum information. mHealth app has the potential to engage a large numbers of individuals in large geographical regions. Apple has a large number of mHealth apps for clinical research that are developed for iPhone users. These apps targets Parkinson’s disease, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, breast cancer and asthma. These apps have been developed by research scholars and scientists from leading research institutes.

Artificial Intelligence:

IBM Watson has developed the ability to discover unknown connections between diseases and as it continues to learn and can modify its recommendations based on new information. Researcher and scientists of various universities have started using Watson for various R&D projects. Johnson & Johnson is collaborating with IBM Watson to teach Watson to read and understand scientific papers that contains clinical trial outcomes. Sanofi is using artificial intelligence to know how it can improve the capability of existing drugs. Watson has the capability to reduce the cost and improve the discovery process.

Nanorobotics in nanomedicine:

Nanorobotics is the prospect to produce highly advance robots in the scale of nanometer.The most important aspect of nanorobtics includes power communication, navigation and different onboard computation during the emergency. It can also be applied to identify the specific chemicals, provides early warning signal of different organ failure and can be used to make biometric measurements. This technology is used by Randox Laboratories which develops innovative diagnostic solutions for hospitals, clinical, food testing, forensic toxicology, veterinary labs and life sciences.

These are the most popular technologies in demand and anyone who wants to make career in Pharma should acquire the knowledge of these technologies. After getting the desired skills and knowledge in these technologies one should have a high chance to be selected in the top fortune companies.

How one can acquire the skills in these Technologies?


To acquire the skills and knowledge of these technologies one can go to the various industrial fairs, can attend the workshops organized by different organizations and trade fairs organized by esteem educational institutes. Also, one can acquire it by reading the journals and e-magazines of various scientists who are working on it.

There are also some internal training programs in various companies from where one can get the skills and knowledge about these advanced technologies. These internal training programs are provided by mentors or experts who contain hands on experience over such technologies that helps in enhancing skills.
