Insight Driven Innovation

Our aim is not to discover new molecules like proprietary pharma, but to improve and enhance existing medicines through insight-driven innovation.

We listen to the unique requirements of each country, using local insights to anticipate people’s medical needs, and the needs of doctors and pharmacists. We link these insights with life-changing health technologies, both novel and existing, to deliver meaningful innovation.

This means combining the best technology and science to create new ways of using existing medicines, new delivery methods, new dosage combinations, new indications or digital solutions that improve patient adherence – and applying this to existing off-patent medicines.

Current Needs


  • Making existing medicines more effective: how can we improve medication adherence to deliver better health outcomes for people?

    Despite the availability of life saving and life improving medicines, studies repeatedly show that roughly half of the medications prescribed by physicians are not taken by patients.

    In recent US based study, 40% of heart attack patients did not take their recommended medicines after the first six months of treatment. This problem is not restricted to developed markets, another study in South India showed a medication adherence rate of less than 50% in diabetic patients. This has many negative consequences; worse health outcomes, disease progression, unnecessary rehospitalizations, increased care burden and additional costs for health budgets ($100 ‐ $300 billion per year in the US alone).

    Innovation is urgently needed to support patients in taking their medication in the right way.

    We will take a broad view of how to accomplish this; from developing novel formulations that can reduce pill burden, patient friendly packaging, pill reminder technologies and services, adherence monitoring and patient/physician support tools.
