Digital & Innovation: Australia’s decades-long policy of supporting innovation, significant investment into digital health infrastructure, and successful management of the COVID-19 pandemic has created an unprecedented opportunity to deliver a robust, sustainable digital health industry. The industry however is hampered by commercialisation challenges including access to capital, customers, and expertise.

Roche Australia has joined ANDHealth’s cooperative digital health commercialisation initiative as a Corporate Member to support the development and growth of Australia’s local digital health ecosystem.

ANDHealth’s partnership with Roche will provide Australian digital health entrepreneurs and innovators with access to world-class skills and expertise to meet these challenges.

“The partnership with Roche is a key milestone in enabling us to achieve our vision of creating a world-leading, integrated ecosystem for the development, commercialisation and implementation of evidence-based digital health technologies in Australia,” stated ANDHealth CEO, Bronwyn Le Grice.

“The relationship between our two organisations further strengthens the ANDHealth model of support for the growth and maturation of Australia’s digital health industry – growth that will deliver highly skilled jobs, create economic opportunity and deliver better health outcomes for all Australians,” she said.

Roche is a world leader in research-focused healthcare with combined strengths in pharmaceuticals and diagnostics. Roche is consistently ranked among the top investors in research and development worldwide, across all sectors, reflecting their commitment to innovation and science.

Stefan Plattner, Futures Community lead, Roche Australia, said the partnership with ANDHealth supports the Group’s aim to deliver three to five times more patient benefits over the next decade, at 50 per cent less cost to society.

“As a pioneer in healthcare we are committed to driving ground breaking scientific and technological advances that have the potential to transform the lives of patients worldwide. But we can’t accomplish this on our own. Only by partnering with the brightest minds from diverse backgrounds can we serve the needs of patients.”

“We look forward to working with Roche and other key industry leaders who are part of our Corporate Member Network in building a strong digital health industry in Australia that is the foundation of a truly modern healthcare system, providing care to those who need it, whenever they need it, wherever they are,” said Le Grice.
