The Challenge

Healthcare is moving into an era of digital transformation. The last decade has been witnessing a rise in patient data streaming in from several sources – mobile, wearable, electronic records, genomic data, physicians and patients themselves – that are increasingly connected. At Roche, we believe there is a unique opportunity to redefine health care, enabling more personalized patient care by creating and using insights from the access to meaningful data at scale (breadth and depth).

By leveraging the power of multi-sourced data, we can build a more complex, holistic view of patient health and enable better time-to-value decisions throughout the healthcare system.

We are looking for partners sharing our vision and who are tackling this big-data revolution in patient care.

Together we can build a better future.
