Together with biopharmaceutical company Pfizer, we have developed a healthcare project based on digital culture, training and research.
At the heart of the project is the creation of a Healthcare Hub to find and share innovative ideas, with a double goal: to scout health startups and to promote innovation culture among Pfizer Italia's employees.
 
In a scenario where the Italian pharmaceutical industry is one of the most competitive in Europe, Pfizer Italia has decided to partner with us, convinced that digital transformation is essential to address the new needs in healthcare: the progressive increase of the average age and the consequent need to rethink the treatment of chronic diseases; the urgency of finding effective solutions against the most widespread diseases; the evolution of health demand; the development of personalized medicine.
 
The project involves two of our divisions: Industry – Human Innovation Culture and Open Innovation.
In parallel with the start of an internal training process, we have also started an international startup scouting has started, leveraging on our 13-year experience and network. More than 100 startups have been evaluated based on different areas of interest: adherence to therapy, education and empowerment of patients, early diagnosis, improvement of screenings and optimization of flows within health facilities to offer a better service to patients.
