Pfizer Healthcare Hub: London Mission Statement

The Pfizer Healthcare Hub: London launched in 2017 to help companies innovating in the health tech space to realise their potential. The Hub is designed to help late stage start-ups to grow and reach more patients and providers faster, by giving access to Pfizer’s network and resources.

Pfizer aims to work with the best and brightest collaborators from around the globe, pursuing the vision of transforming people’s lives through innovative solutions to real-world problems. We hope to help solve some of the most challenging problems in healthcare, which include:

  • Improving information, education and engagement in self-care
  • Improving diagnostics and communication to enable new ways of connecting patients, carers and professionals
  • Improving information for patients, carers and providers to help make smart decisions

Adoption of the leading digital and technological innovation in healthcare helps our partners to deliver the best health and wellbeing for patients, and for patients to better manage their care.

Patients, providers and the pharmaceutical companies have access to more medicines, more knowledge and more technology than ever before. Apps, wearables, telemedicine, artificial intelligence, virtual reality, augmented reality, big data, gamification and social media are just some of the tools that may help healthcare providers to improve outcomes, engagement and efficiency.

Pfizer’s Commitment

The Pfizer Healthcare Hubs are a global network dedicated to helping late stage digital healthcare start-ups achieve their own goals. Working with Pfizer Healthcare Hubs could help you grow and reach more patients and providers. Hubs support entrepreneurs to progress faster through collaboration with our mentors and partners with the London Hub working across the UK.
