Sanofi and Google announced that they plan to establish a new virtual Innovation Lab. The partners aim to radically transform how future medicines and health services are delivered by tapping into the power of emerging data technologies.
Paris/France — In view of the digital transformation, Sanofi expects the dawn of a new age biology and human health. This process offers the opportunity to enhance healthcare through partnerships with pioneering technology and analytics companies, says Ameet Nathwani, M.D., Chief Digital Officer, Chief Medical Officer & Executive Vice President, Medical at Sanofi. That is why his company wants to combine its biologic innovations and scientific data with Google’s capabilities, from cloud computing to state-of-the-art artificial intelligence.
The collaboration aims to change how the healthcare company develops new treatments and will focus on three key objectives: to better understand patients and diseases, to increase operational efficiency, and to improve the experience of patients and customers.
Event Tip The Smart Process Manufacturing Congress is the first German network platform to attend the process industry's digital transformation process in its full range of expertise. Experience on 24./25. September 2019 the future of the process industry: digital, modular, 4.0 and live.
The partners will leverage deep analytics across data sets to better understand key diseases and extract related patient insights. This is to enable Sanofi to research and develop more personalized approaches to treatment and identify accompanying technologies to improve health outcomes. The companies will apply technology and analytics on a large real world database to better understand what treatments work for patients. This aims to result in an improved ability to offer personalized treatment advice, thus optimizing patient care and reducing healthcare costs.
The companies also plan to apply artificial intelligence (AI) across diverse datasets to better forecast sales and inform marketing and supply chain efforts. Using AI will take into account real-time information as well as geographic, logistic and manufacturing constraints to help the accuracy of these complex activities.
Additionally, Sanofi IT will be modernizing its infrastructure by migrating some existing business applications to Google Cloud Platform (GCP). By leveraging automation, scalability, and agility —along with increases in data and analytic capabilities — the healthcare provider plans to accelerate and simplify legacy management, provide easy access to recent technologies and its integration into business plans. The transition to GCP will maximize operational cost efficiency and support business objectives, including the Innovation Lab.
