Pfizer Healthcare Hub

Introducing Pfizer Healthcare Hub: Australia

Helping health tech start-ups develop and implement transformational innovation. As a global leader in healthcare, Pfizer is committed to pursuing an ongoing vision of transforming people’s lives through innovative solutions to real health problems. This commitment is the driving force behind Pfizer Healthcare Hub – an exciting initiative that empowers health tech innovators with the extensive knowledge, contacts and resources that an organisation like Pfizer can provide.

Changing the face of healthcare

Healthcare, and the way we engage with it, is rapidly evolving. Today, patients, providers and the pharmaceutical industry have access to more medicines, more knowledge and more technology than ever before. Apps, wearables, telemedicine, artificial intelligence, virtual reality, augmented reality, big data and gamification are all opening up exciting new possibilities. And with one of the world’s largest start-up communities, Australia has the opportunity to be a major contributor in this exciting field. 

A partnership in the future

Pfizer Healthcare Hub exists to help our start-up community take full advantage of these opportunities. The Hub is looking to partner with innovators who demonstrate clear potential to make a big difference to individuals, patient groups or health systems in three key areas:

Disease awareness and information

Facilitating health literacy and access to information for both clinicians and patients,

       so that:

  • patients feel part of the treatment decision and are supported through their healthcare journey
  • clinicians are  provided with timely and useful information to assist with providing the right medicines to the right patients at the right time.


Earlier detection and more accurate diagnosis

Improving clinicians’ access to devices or information to enable earlier, more accurate diagnosis.

  • Artificial Intelligence, big data and electronic medical records all play a key role in clinicians utilising all available data to make a fully informed diagnosis.


Compliance and adherence

Providing technological tools and solutions that facilitate or encourage patient adherence to reatment regimens to optimise outcomes.

  • These can be relevant to to acute, episodic or chronic conditions with recurring exacerbations, and may or may not be life threatening
  • For example, solutions might improve health literacy, offer lifestyle suggestions and medication reminders

Selected applicants will be able to learn, experiment and collaborate with Pfizer - accessing mentoring and know-how in areas including market orientation, infrastructure, compliance, government relations and much more.

The potential benefits could be extraordinary – for individual patients, their families and communities, the national economy, and even the global advancement of healthcare.
