Every patient has an unique journey and perspective.

Your patient strategy should be no different.

To truly understand and address treatment gaps for individuals and communities around the world, health organizations are more than ever integrating patients' perspectives into the discovery, development and commercialization of new drugs, therapies and medical devices.

An authentic patient-centric model, however, is a challenge for an industry still adjusting to the paradigm shift of the patient’s role: from SUBJECT to PARTNER.

Six Degrees Medical will help your organization discover your own patient-centric path, with the goals of:

  • enriching drug discovery and development
  • improving clinical research design and execution
  • enhancing patient outcomes
  • inspiring relevant conversations about your products and the conditions they treat
