What does the Pharmaceutical Industry need to do to truly bring better medicines to patients?

The pharmaceutical industry is facing a challenge of huge dimensions: While continuing to invest more and more in R&D every year, the output remains flat - at best. This is of course not sustainable. Thus, I want to start a conversation on: What should the industry really do to move to the next level? How can we bring better medicines to patients in need? What do we need to change?

What about long term solutions?
