Integrated & Personalized Patient Care

Integrated & Personalized Patient Care - Use emerging data and knowledge to inform better patient outcomes and to enable a personalized & integrated patient experience across the care continuum.

We believe patients should receive the best support, anywhere, anytime, as they need it. We will do this by providing digital solutions that put patients at the heart of their care by integrating and personalizing the support they receive.

Patients often feel frustrated with the sheer number of places, technologies and people they need to access in order to manage their disease. We want to eliminate that frustration by ensuring a consistent experience for patients and care teams regardless of where they are in their journey or what app/device they use.

We will explore partnering externally and internally to provide fit-for-purpose solutions that help patients and care teams from diagnosis through treatment and beyond. We will leverage the power of data and technology to gain insights into diseases, treatments or lifestyle to improve the quality of care and make it as unique to each patient as possible.
