In fact, according to the research, 56% of healthcare and life science professionals use AI daily in their current roles.

Globally, most healthcare leaders view AI as a partner for improving access to care for patients and making the experience as seamless as possible. In life sciences, clinical trials and supply chain efficiency are ranked paramount to ensure the timely and reliable delivery of critical pharmaceuticals, medical devices, and other healthcare products.
