Caring 2

With social distancing and traveling restrictions, patients are unable to access healthcare in a timely manner, resulting in late diagnosis, treatment or care. 

There are also capacity issues at hospitals constraining delivery of diagnosis, treatment and care. This is impacting both patient outcomes and helathcare ecosystems - which would be under pressure once these patients present at later stages. 


What is a virtual inspiration tour and what is the intended outcome? 

This will be a digital inspirational session. The inspiration will be provided  by your colleagues in Roche who came up with innovate and/or pragmatic ideas to provide solutions for our patients, AND by worldwide start-ups who have taken it upon themselves to create solutions for this specific challenge. You will leave this session inspired on the possibilities and solutions available. The intended outcome is for you start experimenting with external partners on better outcomes for patients, and to incentivize to work ABOVE countries when partnering with start-ups so you can more easily scale the developed solutions.

Why should you join? 

#1: You will get access to high impact entrepreneurs who ALREADY demonstrated their potential to scale

#2: Identify affiliates within your Roche network that can potentially co-create with you. We will collect affiliates interests to partner on those challenges. From there we will be able to create communities working together.

#3: Engaging a local customer in the co-creation journey. Inspire him by inviting them as you like.

When and how will this take place?

The virtual inspiration tour will be organized for two different timezones - you will be able to chose your preferred timing in the registration page. The calls themselves will be organized via Zoom, for which you will receive all the necessary links/log-ins via e-mail. The specific timings are:
