AstraZeneca Emerging Markets Health Innovation Hubs: Reimagining Patient Experiences and Improving Health Outcomes Through Unique Collaborations

by AstraZeneca

Summary of work

The AstraZeneca Emerging Markets Health Innovation Hubs aspire to reimagine patient experiences and improve health outcomes, in geographies/markets with often limited healthcare infrastructure, by brokering unlikely alliances and using integrated approaches. One such innovation is the unique India Innovation Hub-Tricog partnership-led initiative, Project Heart Beat, which aims to improve the experience and health outcomes of heart attack patients by leveraging artificial intelligence for quicker diagnosis and treatment.
