Digital technologies are transforming healthcare. Understanding what this means for consumers, patients and care providers is the starting point in our process. We work closely in partnerships with healthcare providers, academic and industry partners, sharing new insights and perspectives. Together, we realize the very best ideas.

Innovation hubs

We maximize the impact of innovations through our regional innovation hubs in Shanghai (China), Bangalore (India), Cambridge (USA), and Eindhoven (Europe), together with cross-functional teams. This global presence means we are ideally positioned to anticipate, understand and react to local markets as well as address evolving customer needs.

The best way to predict the future is to create it. And the future of healthcare is smart and connected.
